Psychological distress is a common problem associated with cancer.
The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale HADS is a self-report questionnaire designed to screen anxious and depressive states in patients in non-psychiatric settings. In spite of its large use, no agreement exists in literature on HADS accuracy in case finding. Receiver operating characteristic ROC curves were computed to identify a cut-off for anxious and depressive states in cancer patients. The area under the ROC curve was 0. This study suggested that risk scores of anxious and depressive states above specific HADS cut-offs are useful in identifying anxious and depressive states in cancer patients, and they may thus be applicable in clinical practice.

Metrics details. There is a need to assess the contribution of mood disorder, especially anxiety and depression, in order to understand the experience of suffering in the setting of medical practice. Most physicians are aware of this aspect of the illness of their patients but many feel incompetent to provide the patient with reliable information. The term 'hospital' in its title suggests that it is only valid in such a setting but many studies conducted throughout the world have confirmed that it is valid when used in community settings and primary care medical practice. It should be emphasised that self-assessment scales are only valid for screening purposes; definitive diagnosis must rest on the process of clinical examination. Quality of life is a broad term without exact definition.
The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) was devised 30 years ago by Zigmond and Snaith  to measure anxiety and depression.

Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale HADS was originally developed by Zigmond and Snaith  and is commonly used by doctors to determine the levels of anxiety and depression that a person is experiencing. The HADS is a fourteen item scale that generates: Seven of the items relate to anxiety and seven relate to depression. Zigmond and Snaith created this outcome measure specifically to avoid reliance on aspects of these conditions that are also common somatic symptoms of illness, for example fatigue and insomnia or hypersomnia.
