Abstract

The aim of this article is to investigate feelings and perceptions presented by women diagnosed with breast cancer from the scientific literature. This is an integrative literature review where the studies were collected in databases SciELO, LILACS, CINAHL, Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science and Psycinfo in the months of April, May and June 2015. The sample included 24 publications. Articles selected on the feelings and perceptions facing the diagnosis of breast cancer were mostly linked to the fear of ideas, anxiety, depression, worry and anxiety. Given these findings, it is important that all patients diagnosed with breast cancer have adequate psychological support during all phases of treatment.
