The sample’s mean age was 56,06 years. Most women had received Chemotherapy (73,5%), Radiotherapy (64,7%) or the combination of both (58,8%). Fifty-three percent had undergone Modified Radical Mastectomy. Significant correlations emerged between clinical and socio-demographic variables and SF-36 subscales. Our findings suggest that the type of surgery and adjuvant treatment undergone may have significant impact on these women’s Health Related Quality of Life
