Abstract [sv]

Livmoderhalscancer är den näst vanligaste cancerformen hos kvinnor. Trots omfattande preventiva insatser är det fortfarande ett stort problem bland kvinnor världen över. Det är därför av stor vikt att få kunskap om livmoderhalscancer för att som sjuksköterska kunna erbjuda den bästa omvårdnaden till dessa kvinnor. Syftet med studien var att undersöka kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med livmoderhalscancer. För att uppnå syftet genomfördes en litteraturstudie med tio vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet presenteras genom fyra teman: Livet förändras, Förlust av kvinnlighet, Behandlingsprocessens onda spiral och Förändrade familjeförhållanden. I resultatet framkom det att få ett cancerbesked var chockerande och stressande. Många kvinnor tvivlade på sin kvinnlighet och upplevde negativa effekter på det sexuella livet. De olika behandlingsmetoderna påverkade kvinnorna både mentalt och kroppsligt. Kvinnornas familjesituation kunde förändras och påverkade hur de hanterade sjukdomen. Det är av stor vikt att sjuksköterskan har förståelse för kvinnornas upplevelser, erbjuder stöd och ger information om sjukdomen och dess behandling.

Abstract [sv]

Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer type among women. Despite extensive preventive efforts is it still a major problem among women worldwide. It is therefore of great importance to get knowledge of cervical cancer in order for a nurse to offer the best care for these women. The aim of this study was to investigate women’s experiences of living with cervical cancer. To achieve the aim, a literature study was conducted with ten scientific articles. The result is presented through four themes: Life changes, Lost of femininity, The vicious circle of the treatment process and Changed family relationships. The result showed that receiving cancer was shocking and stressful. Many women doubted their femininity and experienced adverse effects on their sexual lives. The different treatment methods affected women both mentally and physically. The women’s family relationships could change and affect how they managed the disease. It is of great importance that the nurse understands the women’s experiences, of fers support and provides information about the disease and its treatment.
