The convenient sample was comprised of 246 spouses, and the participants were recruited at the outpatient breast cancer clinic, the chemotherapy room, and the surgical ward for breast cancer. The data from 201 participants were used for the final analyses and analyzed by SPSS 12.0 Win program for descriptive and correlational analyses. Results: Stress and Uncertainty score of breast cancer patients' husbands were no significant differences across the treatment phases. However, Stress and Quality of Life were significant differences between breast conservational surgery and total mastectomy. Quality of Life were significant differences across the treatment phases in husbands. Also, there was a significant relationship among the QOL, Stress, and Uncertainty. In conclusion, stress, uncertainty, type of breast cancer treatment and disease affected the spouses' quality of life.
