The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among anger, coping, and quality of life (QoL) in female cancer patients. We asked 144 female cancer patients with either a malignant or a benign diagnosis to complete the Profile of Mood States (POMS; McNair, Lorr, & Droppleman, 1971), the Brief COPE questionnaire (Carver, 1997), and the Quality of Life in Adult Cancer Survivors (QLACS; Avis et al., 2005) questionnaire. The total score indicating a low level of anger was significantly negatively associated with adaptive cognitive strategies and significantly positively associated with maladaptive coping strategies. Correlation analysis showed that there was a relationship between QoL factors and low anger scores. This knowledge may be incorporated in psychological intervention in the form of recognition and understanding of anger in cancer patients.
