Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den vanligaste typen av cancer hos kvinnor och med hjälp av mammografi screeningar kan cancern hittas i ett tidigt skede. En annan anledning till att söka sjukvård är om kvinnorna känner något ovanligt i bröstet. För att diagnostisera bröstcancer används diagnostikmetoden trippeldiagnostik som består av mammografi och ultraljud med eventuell biopsi. Under kvinnans gång, från att misstänka bröstcancer, genom undersökningarna till och med de får sin diagnos uppkommer olika känslor. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att belysa kvinnors upplevelser i samband med trippeldiagnostiken vid misstänkt bröstcancer. Metod: Åtta vetenskapliga artiklar hittades via databassökningar inom CINAHL och Scopus, samt manuella sökningar. Dessa artiklar granskades och analyserades för att besvara syftet. Resultat: Utifrån analyser av de åtta artiklar redovisas med tre kategorier och sex underkategorier. Kategorierna var ”Kommunikationen vid undersökningstillfället”, ”Upplevelser av undersökningarna” och ”Väntan på besked”. Konklusion: Att misstänka bröstcancer upplevdes skrämmande, oroväckande och ångestfylld. Känslorna följer kvinnorna hela vägen till och med de får sin diagnos. Med hjälp av litteraturstudien ”Den värsta tiden i mitt liv…” kan röntgensjuksköterskor få en inblick i hur kvinnor upplever de olika momenten inför sin diagnos och kan därmed informera, bemöta och undersöka kvinnorna på ett respektfullt och professionellt sätt.

Abstract [en]

Background: Breast cancer is one of the most common cancer diseases for women. With the help of regular participation of mammography screening there is a high rate of finding breast cancer in an early state. Another way to find breast cancer is when women feel something abnormal in their breast, for example a lump. To diagnose breast cancer you use examinations such as mammography and ultrasound with possible biopsy sample, these examinations are called triple diagnosis. Through the experience of suspecting breast cancer, during the breast examinations until the moment women get their diagnosis different feelings arise. Aim: The aim of this literature study was to elucidate women's lived experience during the triple diagnosis of suspected breast cancer disease. Method: Eight scientific articles were found through database searching on the databases CINAHL and Scopus. Manual search were also made. The search and analyzing were made to fulfill the purpose of this literature study. Results: The eight analyzed articles were summed up to three categories and six subcategories. These categories were “Communication at the time of the examination”, “Examination-experience” and “In the process of waiting for results”. Conclusions: Women who suspect having breast cancer experienced the feelings of fear, worry and anxiety throughout the whole process until diagnosis. The literature study “The worst time of my life…” gives X-ray nurses an insight of women‘s lived experiences of the examinations through their time of suspected breast cancer. With this insight x-ray nurses learn to inform, examine and meet their patients professionally and with respect.
