  1. STAI: State-Trait Anxiety Inventory.
  2. CI: Confidence interval.
  3. Table 2 Shows the comparison of logistic analysis results adjusted for covariates between the abnormality notified/disease undisclosed and disease disclosed groups in order to elucidate whether disclosing disease increases state anxiety.
