Background and Objective: Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. Sense of Coherence (SOC) is one of the most important factors influencing mental health. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between SOC and stress, anxiety and depression in women with breast cancer.

The tools included an individual information form, a 13-question of Antonovsky's SOC questionnaire, and Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale- 21 items (DASS-21). Data analysis was performed by SPSS software version 16. Descriptive and inferential tests were analyzed. P levels less than 0.50 were considered significant.
Results: Linear regression models were used to investigate the effect of SOC and demographic factors on stress, anxiety and depression. The results showed that SOC was effective on the variables of stress, anxiety and depression (P<0.05). So that by increasing a score to a SOC, the mean scores of stress, anxiety and depression decreased respectively 09.0, 0.11 and 0.07.
