Cancer is a public health problem in many countries. This type of cancer is fourth most frequent tumor among women in Brazil and it occurs mostly with residents of the Sao Paulo State. There are forecasts that predict that is incidence will reach 25.790 people this year. This research is a systematic review of qualitative approach, through single terms: life, interned patients, nursing, sick, family relationships, nurse-patient relationship, patients emotion life quality, history of patient life, all of which were researched in the following database: Lilacs, Sciielo, Cochrane, Google and  Medline from 1960 to 2005. Analyzed 6177 abstracts, these were choose 66 articles. According to the authors' narratives,  according with their  experience with "getting sick with cancer" and, through the analysis of the content of Bardin  (1977), the terms were linked to the contents found in the databases. Cancer is a disease of serious connotation and stigma. The experience provide us certain spiritual enrichment, a unique opportunity to rediscover our lives. The care  provide by the health workers, specially the one provide by the nursing staff, when they didn't just limit the care to technical service but also valued the emotional, taking care with love, made all the difference. Love is a feeling very difficult to define, but it is easily noticed; it encourages and reinvigorates the actions. "Love cures and the lack of kills". However, it is  useless to take care of others if with we do not take care of ourselves. It is not possible to deal with the feelings, the suffering, the disease, the death of the other people, if we are not prepared to work with our own emotions and difficulties in taking care. The nurse need to search for self knowledge because it is "impossible to struggle for the patient's psychological homeostasis if the nurse is not meeting her own psychosocial needs".
