Özet:The aim of this research is to determine the relationships between depression due to pain, and loss of limbs due to mastectomy and quality of life, and religiousness of women with breast cancer. Sample of the study consisted of 360 women with breast cancer selected from Ali Osman Sönmez Oncology Hospital, Radiation Oncology Clinic. The measures used in the study included the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ C-30), the OK-Religious Attitude Scale (RA), and the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) for pain. According to results ; no significant correlations were found between a religious attitude (RA) and the pain perception. Mean scores of the RA and subscales of RA of patients with a positive body perception were higher than that of patients with a negative body perception. There was a significant negative correlation between the religious attitude (RA) and depression. A significant positive correlation was found between the RA (total) and a global health scale of quality of life. In addition, a significant positive correlation was found only between behavior subscale of (RA) and a functional and the global health scales of quality of life.
