Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine salient demographic characteristics of women who exhibited prompt or self-delay behavior for treatment of breast cancer symptoms. The population for this study consisted of 224 adult females between the ages of 25 and 82, residents of Arizona, who were participants in the Self Help Intervention Project: Breast Cancer Treatment Study conducted at The University of Arizona, College of Nursing. The instrument used in this study was the Demographic Data form devised by Carrie Jo Braden, Ph.D., R.N. Women who sought prompt follow up treatment for breast cancer symptoms showed significant differences from those who did not seek prompt help in age, employment, social support, and ethnicity. Significant differences for women who self-delayed treatment from those who did not self-delay were age, education, and ethnicity.
