Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder, ranking fourth in the overall population. People who face death go through various mental states and phases, such as anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance; and the most common defenses used by a cancer patient are regression, denial, projection, and repression. Research has shown that psychiatric disorders are as common, if not more so, as other physical symptoms in cancer patients.

The aim of this study was to assess the clinical picture of depression in oncology patients based on the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) questionnaire. The study was conducted at the Department of Internal Medicine of the General Hospital Šibenik in the oncology clinic, on a sample of 50 people.

The results of the research showed that no severe form of depression was found among the respondents and ac-cording to the BDI questionnaire, the percentage which it appeared in it showed cases of mild depression.
