In addition, data analysis was performed in SPSS version 22 using statistical and descriptive tests.(#br)Results: In this research, the... highest frequency of breast and cervical cancers (52.5%) and gastric and colon cancers (53.8%) was related to the age range of 41-60 years. Results demonstrated that the mean score of death anxiety was significantly higher in women with breast and cervical cancers (47.8±20.30), compared to the subjects with gastrointestinal cancers (44.19±41.10) (P=0.045). Moreover, in the participants with gastrointestinal cancers, death anxiety was less observed in those with no children, compared to the subjects with children (P<0.05).(#br)Conclusion: According to the results of the study, death anxiety level was higher in women with breast and cervical cancers.
