In brief: Anxiety and Cancer

Panic disorder is a diagnosis all on its own.
Its not linked to cancer but a lot of cancer patients will experience a high level of anxiety at the time of their diagnosis and interestingly at the completion of their treatment.

In brief: Socondary Anxiety

Panic disorder per se is not a symptom of cancer ( by definition) however, panic attacks can be a manifestation of cancer as well as many other physical ailments.
