Social process could be one of the powerful psychological predictors of people health condition. This study aims to examine (1) spouse support as predictor of women quality of life following surgery for breast cancer and (2) differences of husband support and quality of life scores between various ethnic groups (i.e. Malay, Chinese, Indian). Seventy four newly diagnosed breast cancer patients who had not begun any post-surgery therapy were responded to the self-rated questionnaires - the Inventory of Socially Supportive Behaviour (ISSB), the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Core Module (EORTC QLQ-C30) and the Breast Module (EORTC QLQ-BR23). Results showed that social functioning significantly associated with spouse support (p<0.01). Spouse support and several quality of life domains (i.e. physical functioning, emotional functioning, pain, appetite loss, sexual functioning and arm symptoms) indicated significant differences between ethnic groups. Spouse support explained 5% of the variance of the social functioning in these women with breast cancer. This study reflects social process such as spouse support as an important determinant in both the development and exacerbation of one?s health outcome. This possibility of health-relevant pathways may contribute to the future model in social neuroscience research perspective related to cancer study.
