ABSTRACT : It is very essential to consider the people impacted by breast cancer, despite the fact that the word cancer can purely adjust ones attention on the disease itself and not on whom and how it may affect people. Regardless of those who end up recovering physical symptoms, a small number of women suffer enduring psychological problems, from anxiety and fear following the diagnosis. Through assessing 80 primary healthcare nurses at Al-Amoudi Breast Cancer Center and attending cancer support group sessions at the International Medical Center, the researcher was able to identify psychological factors that impact the patients’ treatment outcome, with the husband as a supporter coming on the top, along with the family’s support and the willingness of the patient to recover taking second place. The responses pinpointed the reactions most frequently occurring with a breast cancer diagnosis news, which exhibited seeking treatment, engaging in prayer and religious rituals, searching for information about the disease as well as finding support from a loved one as most expected. In addition to that, a diagram has assisted rating the most important support system according to the nurses as health caregivers, which resulted with the nurses ranking second after the family.
