AIM: Aim of the study was to measure the belief and metacognition strategies trend in the survivorship of fertile women with breast cancer. We wanted to observe the metacognitive performance of young women went out primary treatment getting survivors; we wanted to assess the impact of metacognitive strategies in coping with survivorship in cancer patients who have been diagnosed at an early age. METHODS: Seventy two women in age range 30-55 year olds (mean 48; sd= ±6) with breast cancer diagnosis participated in the study. Depression and anxiety, psychological distress and metacognitions thinking have been measured. RESULTS: Results evidenced age as vulnerable variable in emotions dealing with oncological post-treatment living (higher anxiety in young patients), but with some features: in our study, patients appeared resilient to the psychological distress and depression. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSIONS: Our finding showed that early diagnosis in early age and early stage of disease might be related to emotional trend starting from fragility in early post-treatment and then in survivorship it tends to get positively by resilient dynamics.
