Tumor asthenia (TA) or tumor asthenic syndrome may be a complex multidimensional syndrome that affects all areas of the person: physical, cognitive, psycho-emotional and social, significantly decrease their quality of life. It seems to be associated with the tumor type and, above all, to the clinical condition. Etiologically it appears to be associated with substances produced by the tumor, comorability (anaemia, malnutrition, endocrinopathies, infection), psychosocial factors, pain, insomnia and/or, above all, to side effects of some treatments.
