Quality of life is a relative term. The relevance of it changes as per the situation. The present paper tried to capture different aspects of QoL in the case of breast cancer patients of rurban (rural and urban) investor communities in the study area. The study was undertaken to understand the impact quality of life of breast cancer survivors in rurban areas of Odisha, India, to understand whether any difference of opinion exists among different age groups in the rurban areas considered for the study and contributing to the prevailing literature. The entire data were captured under three constructs such as physical health, mental health, and the impact of spirituality on breast cancer patients for improving the survivors’ quality of life. The results found that most respondents opined that fatigue, sleeping problem, anxiety, body pain, fear of uncertainty, and weakness were the most common issues faced by the BC survivors. It was also observed that the medical support is more for urban BC patients than rural ones. At the same time, there is a more positive mindset for the rural patients compared to the urban respondents in the study areas.
