Breast cancer is the most common neoplasia among women, annually affecting 2.1 million worldwide. Both the diagnosis and the adjuvant treatments administered impact not only the physical but also the mental health and quality of life of the patients who suffer from it. Multidisciplinary evaluations of the quality of life will allow providing quality healthcare attention to the health status of patients during this chronic disease, identifying associated comorbidities and offering more individualized assistance.
This Special Issue is intended to propose new approaches regarding the psychological and medical factors that affect the mental and physical health and quality of life of patients and survivors of breast cancer to develop novel intervention proposals that improve the quality-of-life levels and health status of this clinical population.
