Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den vanligaste cancerformen hos kvinnor och antalet

bröstcancerfall ökar. En cancerdiagnos leder till många emotionella förändringar.

Som vårdpersonal är det viktigt att ha vetskap och förståelse om patientens

subjektiva upplevelser kring sin sjukdom för att kunna ge en god vård.

Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien är att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av att leva

med bröstcancer.

Metod: Databaserna PubMed och Cinahl användes i sökningen av artiklar.

Resultaten i artiklarna har analyserats genom en analysmetod för kvalitativa

studier och resultatet i litteraturstudien baseras på 14 vetenskapliga artiklar av

kvalitativ ansats.

Resultat: Kvinnorna upplevde negativa förändringar i deras vardagliga liv

relaterat till sjukdomen både fysiskt, psykiskt och socialt. De upplevde en

förändrad roll i familjen och som kvinna. Vilken och hur mycket information

kvinnorna önskade få om sitt tillstånd varierade. Kvinnorna fick en ny syn på livet

och de uppskattade livet mer än de gjorde innan sjukdomen.

Slutsats: Kvinnorna upplevde många svårigheter i och med

bröstcancersjukdomen och dessa upplevelser är viktiga att ha i beaktande i

vårdandet av patienter med bröstcancer.
