ABSTRACT

Background: The present research work is based on prospective analysis of management of breast cancer patients for their quality of life during the time of disease condition and its treatment. Objective: We are more focused on studying diagnosis, medications and mental stress level of the patients through a questionnaire, which we have prepared for this prospective study. Methods: In this research study, the Quality of life of the patients was evaluated using “Quality of Life Assessment Questionnaire for the Patients with Breast Cancer”. The questionnaire was designed in 4 different languages: English, Hindi, Telugu and Urdu. The questionnaire consists of 21 questions divided in 2 domains. Domains include: Mental health and social health status. Result: The data later was statistically analysed and mean of physical health was found to be 1.84, for mental health, it was 2.04, for social health, it was 2.56 and lastly, for Pharmacotherapy status, mean was found to be 3.29. The total mean was found to be 2.30. Conclusion: It can be concluded that breast cancer has a negative impact on patient’s quality of life limiting patient’s physical health, severely affecting mental and social health. As most of the patients were found to be of daily wage worker background belonging to inferior and middle class socioeconomic status it was very difficult for the patients to cope up with the disease and treatment.
