The main goal of this study was to assess the quality of life and psychological well-being of 75 patients with postsurgical treatment for thyroid cancer. Quality of life was evaluated with the Quality of Life Health Questionnaire SF-36, and psychological well-being with the The Psychological Well-Being Index. Each patient was interviewed in a single session. The results obtained showed high correlations (p <0.01) among the two instruments, as well as a directly proportional positive correlation between time from thyroidectomy and the degree of psychological well-being and quality of life reported by patients.
Quality of life, psychological well-being, cancer, thyroidectomy.
