Sufferers of breast cancer are often plagued by various psychological problems. Mastectomy, which has a serious influence
on the female sex characteristics, can bring about especially serious psychological problems. These problems affect not only
the patients’ quality of life but also the beginning, development, and end of the disease. This paper reviewed the relationships
between the patients’ personal factors, the disease itself, treatment factors, and other socio-psychological factors and psychological
conditions so as to provide new ideas for the psychological intervention on breast cancer patients, comprehensive clinical
diagnosis and treatment, and prevention and cure.
