Result-In the control group mean and standard deviation of psychological symptoms before foot reflexology (54.5 + 6.8, 23.6 + 2.6) and in post test (54.2 + 6.7, 23.5 + 2.6) and z test value (−0.345, −0.575). Conclusion-The mean and standard deviation of psychological symptom anxiety and depression of patient with cancer before foot reflexology was (51.0 + 6.6, 26.1 + 4.0) respectively and after foot reflexology was (42.0 + 4.53, 16.5 + 3.2) and z test value −3.792, −3.928 in experimental group. While comparing the pre test score to post test score there was a reduction of score in post test so it was very highly significant (P<0.001).
