The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) (APA, 1994) was revised in 1994 to include the diagnosis of a life threatening illness as a traumatic stressor constituting Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This inclusion prompted further research into PTSD in survivors of cancer. Understanding the prevalence of PTSD in breast cancer survivors is complicated due to the lack of generalisation of studies, small sample sizes and variance in methodology. This review highlights the need for psychological support for breast cancer patients at every stage, from diagnosis to treatment and post-treatment. The importance of clinical psychology within oncology departments is paramount.
