Introduction: Prostate cancer has a negative impact on quality of life and stress and risk can exacerbate this negative impact. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between quality of life and its relationship with stress, anxiety, and depression in patients with prostate cancer.
Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study, 100 patients with prostate cancer referred to Shahid Labbafinejad and Shahid Tajrish hospitals in Tehran were selected by convenience sampling method and completed the patients' quality of life questionnaire and hospital depression anxiety scale. Data were analyzed using SPSS software. 
Results: The mean scores of quality of life, stress, anxiety, and depression were 50.70±8.59, 14.60±4.13, 12.87±4.12, and 12.52±3.18, respectively. There was a statistically significant inverse relationship between quality of life and stress (-0.53), anxiety (0.312), and depression (-0.329).
Conclusion: Anxiety and depression reduce the quality of life of patients with prostate cancer. In addition to medical treatments, it seems that, beside medical treatment, the implementation of appropriate psychological interventions is necessary to increase the quality of life of patients with prostate cancer.
