Prospective study of quality of life of breast cancer patients in a single institution.
Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate ambulatory patients with breast cancer who have received treatment at the Aretaieio Hospital. In the prospective study that was made, women were questioned at the interview, from two questionnaires: QLQ-C30 and QLQ-BR23. The first was designed to measure cancer in physical, psychological and social functions of patients. It consists of 5 scales (physical, role, social, emotional and cognitive functioning) and 9 unified objects (pain, fatigue, economic impact, loss of appetite, nausea / vomiting, diet, constipation, sleep disorders and quality of life).1 While the QLQ-BR23 questions include symptoms and side effects related to different modes of treatment, body, sexuality and future prospects.2 The results showed the negative health-related quality of life of breast cancer patients in bone marrow compared to modified radical mastectomy. After completing ancillary therapies, problems such as loss of appetite, insomnia, and pain afflict patients. Symptoms from the breast show improvement over modified therapy.
