  1. Influence of psychological response on survival in breast cancer : a population-based cohort study.

    Article - En anglais

    Background The psychological response to breast cancer, such as a fighting spirit or an attitude of helplessness and hopelessness toward the disease, has been suggested as a prognostic factor with an influence on survival.

    We have investigated the effect of psychological response on disease outcome in a large cohort of women with early-stage breast cancer.

    Methods 578 women with early-stage breast cancer were enrolled in a prospective survival study.

    Cox's proportional-hazards regression was used to obtain the hazard ratios for the measures of psychological response, with adjustment for known clinical factors associated with survival.

    Findings At 5 years, 395 women were alive and without relapse, 50 were alive with relapse, and 133 had died.

    There was a significantly increased risk of death from all causes by 5 years in women with a high score on the HAD scale category of depression (hazard ratio 3.59 [95% Cl 1.39-9.24]). There was a significantly increased risk of relapse or death at 5 years in women with high scores on the helplessness and hopelessness category of the MAC scale compared with those with a low score in this category (1.55 [1.07-2.25]).
