Effects of social relationships on survival for women with breast cancer : a prospective study.
Using multivariate methods to examine predictors of survival, two clinical factors, pathologic nodal status and clinical stage of disease, were significantly associated with survival.
In addition we found significant and independent effects on survival of: number of supportive friends, number of supportive persons, whether the woman worked, whether she was unmarried, the extent of contact with friends and the size of her social network.
Thus, the woman's social context, particularly contexts of friendship mand work outside the home, are statistically important for survival.
