ABSTRACT Cervical cancer is a cancer occurring in a woman’s cervix which is usually caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). The data from the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2012 stated that cancer is the most leading cause of death in the world. The responses induced by this cancer include psychosocial responses such as depression and anxiety, meanwhile, the impacts include anxiety and helplessness (Oetami & Thaha, 2014). The purpose of this study was to describe the psychosocial responses of patients with cervical cancer at the central public hospital of Dr. Kariadi, Semarang. The study employed a descriptive survey. The samples were the hospitalized patients with cervical cancer as many as 96, who were determined by the consecutive sampling. Th data were collected by the questionnaire of Psycosocial Assessment Tool (PAT). This instrument had been tested for its validity in 30 respondents and the results ranged from 0.497 to 0.903. The reliability test showed the value of 0.982. The results indicated that the patients who experienced distress were as much as 77.1%, finance as much as 74%, and sadness as much as 77.1%. The most behavioral response performed by the patients was praying as many as 95 people (99%), and the highest physical response was fatigue 86.5%. Based on the findings, it is suggested that the hospital management could make regulations related to the emotional support, such as peer group, for patients with cervical cancer.
