    ABSTRACT: Clinical communication is a multidimensional concept, which encompasses the core of effective clinical practice. Communication in cancer patients is particularly challenging and yet a less focused area in cancer care. Various barriers and challenges in communication may affect the management protocol of cancer patients. Challenges may arise in various dimensions of cancer care including breaking bad news to delivery of complex clinical information, determination of appropriate treatment strategies, dealing with uncertainties, end of life counseling as well as cultural and language barriers affecting the whole communication dynamics. Effective communication is the basic foundation for responsive treatment decisions, positive health outcome, patient driven compliance and overall high quality of care. Thus, there is a need for acknowledging and actively deciphering the challenges and developing and promoting various protocols of effective communication skills in cancer patients.
