    Abstract [en]

    Many young adults get a cancer illness each year. The high incidence of cancer in our society means that patients with cancer are to be met in the entire healthcare organization. Considering the strong emotional reactions following a cancer diagnosis and how the lives of young people are affected, it is a challenge to the nurses in order to provide emotional support, which may lead to better manageability among the patients. The purpose of this study was to examine how young adults cope with thoughts and feelings at a cancer illness and how the nurse can provide emotional support to make patients better handle the crisis. The study was conducted as a literature review and was based on 29 scientific articles. The results illustrated thoughts and feelings related to a cancer diagnosis, different strategies for coping with the diagnosis, and how the support received from the nurse can lead to better manageability. It is important that health professionals think holistically and makes health care more personalized, so that the living situation and desires of young adults are to be considered. Further research and education in the future should focus on investigating needs and desires of young adults, when it comes to feelings and emotional support at a cancer illness, so that healthcare staff can better respond to them.
