Abstract

The purpose of this literature review is to see the biopsychosocial impact of breast cancer sufferers in Indonesia. The literature review method uses secondary data from previous research on the biopsychosocial impact of breasts cancer in Indonesia, which was searched using the Google Scholar search engine and Pubmed from 2015 to 2020. The results of the literature review stated that 20 journals show the biological/physical impact felt by sufferers’ cancer is pain, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, hair loss, skin discoloration, and decreased appetite. The psychological impact that is felt is fear of death, anxiety, shame, depression, even to the level of suicidal thoughts. The impacts that occur in breast cancer sufferers are in the form of biological/physical impacts, psychological impacts and social impacts that require intervention to overcome them. Suggestion: it is necessary to do non-pharmaceutical therapy to deal with client complaints so that it can support the patient's current medical therapy.
