 Aims and background: Attending to mental health in cancer patients because of expanded damage and mortality in these patients is important. The present study investigated the mediating role of concern in the relationship between uncertainty of intolerance and illness perception with mental health in cancer patients. Materials and Methods: This research is a cross-sectional descriptive study. In this study, 300 patients with cancer who attended Imam Hossein Hospital in Tehran were selected by convenience sampling method from May to September, 2017. Data was collected by using instruments including Demographic Questionnaire, Concern questionnaire, intolerance uncertainty Questionnaire, Illness Perception Questionnaire and Mental Health Questionnaire. For data analysis, descriptive and inferential statistics with spss-19 software was used. Findings:    Analysis    of    the    findings    showed    that    there    is    a    significant    positive    relationship    in    the    prediction    of    mental health according to the psychological distress component based on perceived disease with mediating role of    concern.    There    is    also    a    significant    negative    relationship    between    mental    health    prediction    and    the    psychological    well-being component based on the perception of disease with mediating role of concern. In addition, there is a significant    positive    relationship    between    mental    health    prediction    and    psychological    distress    based    on    intolerance    of    uncertainty    with    mediating    role    of    concern.    In    the    prediction    of    mental    health,    there    is    a    significant    negative    relationship with the psychological well-being component based on the uncertainty intolerance with the mediating role of concern. conclusion: In order to the results of this study, it can be suggested that in order to improve the mental health of these patients, attention should be paid to the variables of concern, uncertainty and perception of the disease during clinical trials with the aim of designing appropriate intervention models or modifying existing interventions.
