Women's experience of health and quality of life after having undergone breast cancer treatment (Engelska)
Abstract [en]

Background: Breast cancer accounts for about 30% of the cancer diagnoses in today's society. About twenty women are diagnosed every day. After treatment, a stressful period awaits which influences the women's health and quality of life. The treatment affects the body even after the treatment has ended and not always in a positive way.

Aim: The purpose of this study is to highlight women's experience of health and quality of life after completed breastcancer treatment.

Method: Analyzing of 11 scientific articles were conducted and resulted in this literature study with qualitative approach.

Results: The analysis led to three themes: emotional experiences that affects the health, factors that affect the quality of life and experiences of support. The result showed that fatigue, lymphedema, anxiety, fear, loneliness and scars after mastectomy were the side effects that affected women's health and quality of life the most.

Conclusion: The result shows that women are affected differently after a breast cancer treatment. Negative side effects affect women's quality of life and health to the extent that they are limited in their daily lives and experience changes in themselves.
