Internal resources are likely to have great brunt on embracing different type of coping strategies among those who have encountered negative experiences/events in life like diagnosed with cancer. Among these coping strategies is cognitive emotion regulation. There were 44 breast cancer patients selected as sample of study from the cosmopolitan city of Hyderabad. The objective of the study was to determine if there was a difference between younger and older women suffering with breast cancer undergoing treatment with respect to cognitive emotion regulation. To determine if there is a difference between employed and not employed women suffering with breast cancer undergoing treatment with respect to cognitive emotion regulation . The instrument used in the study is cognitive emotion regulation questionnaire Analysis of the obtained results shows that there was significant difference between younger and older women with cancer, with reference to the dimension of rumination. There was significant differences between employed and unemployed women suffering with breast cancer undergoing treatment with respect to only focus on planning. This would propose modifications in intervention studies and tailor make them according to stressors instead of personal variable of age and consider their role behaviors related to their occupational status.
