Objective: To provide reference for improving the quality of life of young cancer patients and implementing targeted and effective intervention measures by investigating and analyzing the current situation of quality of life of young cancer patients and its influencing factors. Methods: The convenience sampling method was used to investigate and analyze 155 young cancer patients from four large Grade A hospitals in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, using questionnaires such as the general condition questionnaire, Herth hope index scale HHI, social support scale, and CARE-SF. Results: The total score of quality of life of young cancer patients was (34.38±17.16), the total score was low, indicating that young cancer patients had relatively good quality of life experience. Among them, the most influential factors were course of disease, followed by marriage, childbirth and age. At the same time, the quality of life of young cancer patients is correlated with the level of hope and social support. Conclusion: The quality of life of young cancer patients is affected by many factors. We should pay more attention to this special group in our clinical practice.
