The objective of this study is exploring the psychological and spiritual features of a group of patients diagnosed with breast neoplasm, from the desire of suggesting the necessity of a multivalent treatment, which aims in the same time medical, psychological and spiritual dimension. It is actually the idea of a holistic perspective, the only one capable of increasing the chances for remission or even for cure.

The theoretical frame for this research is based upon the assumption that the patients with breast cancer have specific personality features (L. Temoshok; A. Kneier, 1984), and also that before being diagnosed crossed one or several events with major traumatic impact. The chances of being cured are significantly increasing if the subject is part from the category of the “exceptional patients” (B. Siegel, 2004), which is providing the highest amount of survivors.

Field investigation was realized on a sample group of 80 women, with ages between 35-65 years old, where 40 women were already diagnosed with breast cancer, but were in remission, and 40 women clinically healthy.

Used tests in this research were the Social Readjustment Rating Scale (T. H, Halmes and R. H. Ralhe), Inner Strength Questionnaire (K. L. Lewis, 2004), Locus of Control Scale (Rotter) and the Spiritual Assessment Inventory (Hall; Edwards, 1996).

After the statistical process results showed that in the sample group, diagnosed with breast cancer, in comparing with the control group, the stress level of the patients before getting sick was significantly higher. The survivors of breast neoplasm, who are diagnosed and in treatment for over 3 years, are characterized by a higher level of inner strength (Engagement, Connectedness, Anguish and Searching, Physical), also by inner locus of control and a more developed interest for spirituality (awareness of God and quality of the relationship with God).

As a conclusion, the medical approach of breast cancer is a necessary approach, but is not sufficient because need to be competed by a psychological and a spiritual approach in order to increase the chance for surviving of the patient.
