Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den näst vanligaste cancerformen som kan drabba kvinnor. Utvecklingen av behandlingsmetoder har ökat chansen att överleva och bota bröstcancer under åren. Bröstcancer kan påverka kvinnan både psykiskt och fysiskt. Följderna kan bli psykiskt påfrestande där livskvalitén påverkas negativt. Behandlingar kan leda till ingrepp som ändrar kvinnors utseende och påverkar den levda kroppen. Syfte: Att belysa kvinnors upplevelser efter friskförklaring från bröstcancer  Metod: Studien utfördes med en kvalitativ litteraturöversikt. Resultat: Kvinnor upplevde brister i vården och behövde mer stöd efter sin friskförklaring då effekterna av behandling varade många år efter. Känslor som ångest, övergivenhet och rädsla formade deras vardag. Det påverkade kvinnors självkänsla negativt när de fick leva med en ny kropp efter mastektomin. Konklusion: Kvinnorna upplevde skiftande känslor efter friskförklaring som behöver bemötas av sjuksköterskan för att öka kvinnors välbefinnande.
