Data was analyzed by SPSS-25 software using repeated measure ANOVA.

Conclusion: The findings indicated that the cognitive-behavioral stress management could reduce clinical symptoms of patients with breast cancer. Indeed, using cognitive-behavioral stress management in cancer treatment centers can be regarded as a complementary therapy alongside medical treatments.
