Coping, social support and psychological distress in the diagnostic and preoperative phase of breast cancer

Sammendrag

The relationships between anxiety, coping, social support and demographics were first investigated in a quantitative survey-study of 117 women with suspected breast cancer from September 1998 to February 2000. The results showed that anxiety was strongest related to instrumental coping followed by cognitive defence. Emotional coping and social support were unrelated to anxiety. Better coping was linked primarily to education, and secondly to attachment. Unemployment, low level of education and single/divorced/widowed status were related to greater use of cognitive defence. Women who used a defensive hostile style tended to receive poor social support. The next study aims to describe how women experience the diagnostic and preoperative phase of breast cancer with focus on coping and social support.
