Abstract: Psychosocial correlates of hormone receptor status in primary breast cancers were investigated in 93 consecutive patients. Life event, coping style, and psychological adjustment self-report scales were completed. The 75 patients with receptor-positive (oestrogen and/or progesterone) tumours were better adjusted psychologically than the 18 patients with receptor-negative lesions. These findings may explain the relations that have been found between psychosocial variables and survival.
