    The study deals with psychosocial problems of patients who underwent childhood malignancy treatment. Data from 91 cancer survivors (44 boys and 47 girls) aged 9-19 which were compared to a control group of healthy children attending elementary and secondary schools. Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and univariate tests of between-subjects effects were used to compare individual characteristics of children and adolescents with oncologic disease to their healthy peers. The analyses were done separately for younger (9-12 years) and older (13-19 years) age groups. Cancer survivors were asked to complete the Minnesota-Minneapolis Quality of Life Instrument (MMQL) and other methods measuring involvement in everyday life activities, parent-child interactions, and depressiveness. Children cancer survivors expressed less social involvement (both age groups) and worse physical functioning (younger group). On the other hand, cancer survivors had better parent-child interactions (both age groups), a lower level of depressiveness, better cognitive functioning and a higher level of general life satisfaction (older group).
