Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients (n = 85) and healthy control women (n=59) were recruited. State and trait measures of psychosocial functioning (i.e. anxiety, depression, distress, neuroticism, extraversion, marital satisfaction and mastery) were undertaken. In addition, all participants provided four saliva samples (on waking, 30 min later, between 11 and 1 p.m., before lunch and between 8 and 10 p.m., at Least 2 h after evening meal) over two consecutive days to assess cortisol levels. The results highlighted the divergent nature of the four cortisol indices; revealed the presence of some significant relationships between the psychosocial. measures and the cortisol. indices; but highlighted inconsistencies in the relationships evident for patients and those observed for control women.
