The authors included articles from 3 high-impact oncology journals from July to July that assessed QoL as an outcome variable in intervention trials. They included both clinical trials and other psychological intervention studies and reported that most studies measured QoL during the intervention period only. Measuring QoL is a challenge in itself. Various studies 5 , 6 demonstrated that the interpretation of QoL can be difficult partly because a similar score could be interpreted differently throughout the disease course by a single patient. Westerman et al 5 therefore argued that a qualitative approach to evaluate quantitative questions can be worthwhile.
Objectives: Identify the main changes in the health-related quality of life HRQoL of women diagnosed with breast cancer BC undergoing chemotherapy. Methods: Prospective cohort study that included 33 women diagnosed with clinical stages I—III BC and who underwent adjuvant chemotherapy. We also observed an increase in side effects related to the systemic therapy, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, appetite loss and diarrhoea, despite a decrease in breast symptoms and arm symptoms. Conclusions: HRQoL was negatively affected during chemotherapy. Since side effects are very often underestimated, we consider that the evaluation of HRQoL parameters should be done for BC patients treated with chemotherapy. Keywords: health-related quality of life, breast cancer, patient-reported outcomes, cancer. Correspondence to: Monique Binotto Email: moniquebinotto gmail.

Background: This study is a comparison of quality of life QOL of current and previous cancer victims with people who never had experienced cancer in samples from the general population from the 19 countries in the European Social Survey ESS Methods : The study was based on the ESS with representative samples from 19 countries.
