Health-related quality of life is an important issue in the treatment of breast cancer and healthstate utility values (HSUVs) are essential for cost-utility analysis. This study aimed to systematically identify HSUVs for early (EBC) and metastatic (MBC) breast cancer in the current literature and provide a pooled estimate of HSUVs for identifiable health states. The feasibility of generating a definitive list of HSUVs to be used in future economic evaluation was explored.
