Introduction: Given the role of psychological and social risk factors of unhealthy life style in the etiology and pathogenesis of cancer and quality of life, the aim of this study was to compare the quality of life and perceived stress in patients with Gaiseric and lung cancer with normal subjects.
Material & Methods: In this comparative study, a total of 100 cancer patients (50 lung and 50 stomach) and 50 normal cases, were selected through matched sampling in 2014. Information on the quality of life and perceived stress were collected by questionnaire. Based on Cronbach's alpha, internal reliability of QOL 0.81 and 0.89 reliability perceived stress was estimated. Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis using SPSS version 20.
Results: The results indicated a significant difference between the two groups in perceived stress. The people with lung cancer and stomach had higher scores in perceived stress than the average people (p=0.001). However, no difference was observed between the groups in the quality of life. Also there was no difference between the cancer patients in the quality of life and perceived stress.
Conclusion: Due to differences in the perceived stress in the cancer patients with the normal individuals, conducting psychological intervention training programs for controlling the perceived stress in cancer patients is necessary.
