Hypnosis decreases presurgical distress in excisional breast biopsy patients.


Excisional breast biopsy is associated with presurgical psychological distress. Such distress is emotionally taxing, and may have negative implications for postsurgical side effects and satisfaction with anesthesia. We investigated the ability of a brief hypnosis session to reduce presurgical psychological distress in excisional breast biopsy patients. METHODS: Ninety patients presenting for excisional breast biopsy were randomly assigned to receive either a 15-minute presurgery hypnosis session (n = 49, mean age: 46.4 (95% CI: 42.3-50.4)) or a 15-minute presurgery attention control session (n = 41, mean age: 45.0 (95% CI: 40.8-49.2)). The hypnosis session involved suggestions for increased relaxation and decreased distress. The attention control session involved nondirective empathic listening. Presurgery distress was measured using visual analog scales (VAS) and the short version of the Profile of Mood States (SV-POMS). Data were analyzed using analysis of variance and chi2 procedures. RESULTS: Groups did not differ in terms of the following: demographics (age, education, ethnicity, marital status, all P's > 0.28); medical variables (presurgery diagnosis, previous excisional biopsy, previous breast cancer, all P's > 0.11); or preintervention distress (SV-POMS P > 0.74) assessed on the day of surgery. Postintervention, and before surgery, patients in the hypnosis group had significantly lower mean values for presurgery VAS emotional upset (16.5 vs 38.2, P < 0.0001, d = .85), VAS depressed mood (6.6 vs 19.9, P < 0.02, d = .67), and SV-POMS anxiety (10.0 vs 5.0, P < 0.0001, d = 0.85); and significantly higher levels for VAS relaxation (75.7 vs 54.2, P < 0.001, d = -0.76) than attention controls. CONCLUSIONS: The study results indicate that a brief presurgery hypnosis intervention can be an effective means of controlling presurgical distress in women awaiting diagnostic breast cancer surgery.

Fear and anxiety

Fears and anxieties occur predominantly because the brain has either trigger an unresolved problem solving process due to overactive simulation and anticipation or as the result of a reaction triggered within the hypocampus. In the first situation, the brain should stop the process as soon as the brain’s pattern matching capability or creativity has found a solution. When this happens, the basil ganglia releases a small amount of dopamine, which effectively acts as an off switch. If this sequence does not work, a person may suffer from a wide range of mental health concerns such as phobias,...

Improving your performance

Improving the performance in any given area most likely requires that you stop bad habits and strengthen the necessary parts of your brain and body.

What is psychology?

A widely accepted definition of psychology is that it is "the science of the mind." It is used for a wide variety of research, business, and clinical or therapeutic purposes. The understanding of the human mind is a topic related to fields such as religion, advertising, education, counseling, and healthcare. This is true even though there are those practitioners who consider themselves to be licensed psychologists, who normally focus on counseling and health considerations.
