    Abstract [en]

    Background: Each year about 7000 women get breast cancer. This makes it the most common type of cancer among women. Triple diagnosis is used in order to detect the disease. Different types of treatments are surgery, radiation treatment and chemotherapy. The radiology nurse meet patients at all types of examinations, both before and after diagnosis. Women affected by breast cancer are put in front of an emotional period with hard decisions and a great deal of information to process.Aim: The aim of this paper is to highlight women’s experiences from the day they receive their diagnosis to that they receive their first treatment. Method: A qualitative method was used to conduct a literature review. The review is based on ten different scientific articles. Nine of these are qualitative and one is quantitative. The articles were found in data bases and their academic quality was controlled by a quality controlling model. Thereafter, the articles were analysed using a content analysis. From these findings a result were put together.Result: This paper found that the women in our study experienced a great deal of emotions after receiving their diagnosis. Their ways of handling the diagnosis were different. Great changes occurred for the individual, both on the personal level and in their every day life. Other aspects affecting ones experiences were support and the lack of support, the role of the health care system and information provided.Conclusion: The conclusion drawn from this study is the importance of an individually adapted health care system in order to create well-being and prevent suffering.
