Coping With Anxiety

It’s normal to feel nervous, worried and stressed after being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) or when there is a change in your treatment plan. However, if these feelings become chronic and begin to interfere with daily life, you may want to consider asking for help.

Anxiety is one of the most common psychological symptoms in people with breast cancer, and has been shown to have an impact on quality of life. In fact, of the 1,252 United States MBC patients surveyed, 37% report anxiety as a contributor to lower quality of life.1
