    Background: Every year thousands of women are affected with breast cancer in Sweden. The disease changes the womens life in different ways. The diagnosis gives them different emotions like worry, anxiety and fear. The treatment involves different side effects that can give the feeling of losing your identity. These experiences require that the nurse have the right knowledge to give support, care and treatment to relive the suffering and promote health. Aim: The aim was to illustrate women's experiences of living with breast cancer. Method: Five autobiographies was chosen and analyzed with a qualitative content analysis described by Lundman and Hällgren Graneheim (2014). Results: Four categories emerged from the analysis; Fear of the future, Lose her female identity, The need for interaction and Altered outlook, with eight subcategories. Discussion: It is important that the nurse has knowledge of the psychological and physical changes that occur in women with breast cancer. If the nurse is aware of women's knowledge and experience the knowledge for individualized care increases. Conclusion: Women with breast cancer live with a constant fear, anxiety and worry. Support from people in the same situation and nurses have an important impact on women's health and helps to reduce their suffering.
