Abstract: Despite the high incidence of breast cancer and reports that many affected patients experience insomnia, few studies have addressed the incidence of insomnia among women who underwent breast cancer screening and biopsy. Accordingly, this study aimed to assess the prevalence of insomnia among women who have undergone breast cancer screening and biopsy and current breast cancer patients and identify correlations among insomnia, psychological distress, and quality of life in these populations. The participants were 193 women who visited the Masuda Clinic, a breast disease specialty clinic in Nagano, Japan. After stratifying the participants into breast cancer screening (n = 102), breast biopsy (n = 25), and breast cancer patient (n = 66) groups. The patients were asked to complete a questionnaire regarding insomnia, the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ)-C30. Differences among the groups were assessed using a one-way analysis of variance. Among all groups, 52–57% of the participants experienced insomnia (p = 0.886). No significant differences in the mean HADS scores for anxiety (p = 0.959) and depression (p = 0.755) were observed among the three groups. Among breast cancer patients, several EORTC QLQ-C-30 items correlated with insomnia, whereas fewer such correlations were observed among participants undergoing breast cancer screening and breast biopsy. These findings suggest that women undergoing breast screening or biopsy experience similar psychological distress and insomnia as that reported by breast cancer patients. However, the quality of life of breast cancer patients was more strongly affected by insomnia, suggesting that this is a chronic factor in this population.
