PMID:  1886969     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The suicide attitude in a group of 34 postmastectomy patients was much more marked than in two control groups consisting of 103 medical patients and in 40 healthy subjects, respectively. In a limited sample comprising 23 subjects obtained by excluding the extreme percentile values, certain psychosocial variables (irritability, psychoticism, number of confidants, number of persons in the same household) were observed to be significantly associated with the suicide attitude in postmastectomy patients. On the other hand, no differences were evident, both regarding the interval of time following initial diagnosis and between married and single patients.
