Psychosocial Aspects of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) Syndromes
The proposed cross-sectional study is intended to obtain information regarding current
surveillance behaviors and other psychosocial outcomes among persons affected by the
multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) 1 or MEN2, which are inherited conditions.
Study participants will include patients who have been seen previously at MDACC for
evaluation of MEN1 or MEN2. Because this is the first time investigators are contacting
these patients to invite them to participate in psychosocial research, the proposed study
also will help determine the feasibility of conducting similar studies in the future.
Investigators anticipate that data gathered from this study will enhance existing knowledge
about the psychological and behavioral aspects of the MEN syndromes, and will inform future
research efforts directed toward this understudied population.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Profile the demographic, health-related, psychosocial and behavioral characteristics of adults with MEN1 or MEN2.
