The research study is an endeavour to look at the lives of women with breast cancer.The construct of stress and well-being were explored from multiple perspectives. The study delineates the stressors as perceived by women, and its implications on their sense of well-being. Research has indicated an inextricable chemical link between our emotions, stress in our lives, and the regulatory mechanisms of endocrine and immune systems. This research study emphasizes the importance of expressing our emotions and releasing tensions. Inappropriate storing of stressful emotions results in internal weakening of the immune system, which has a significant potential for the onset of the disease.The science of Psychoneuroimmunology presents enough evidence about the communication link that exists between the mind and the body. The bio-medical approach has certainly made amazing advances, but its limitation lies in not capitalizing on an individual's emotional well-being from a humanistic approach.A paradigmatic shift is required in the way by which the medical fraternity deals with cure; especially for an illness like cancer, in which the treatment is as dreaded as the disease.
