Abstract Introduction: Depression and death anxiety are common problems in patients with cancer that can affect mental health of these patients. On the other hand, spiritual wellbeing recently has been considered by researchers as a factor that has influence on other aspects of health.

Data were collected using valid and reliable questionnaires, Paloutzian Ellison spiritual Wellbeing, Beck depression and Templer death anxiety. Data were analyzed using SPSSv.18, descriptive statistical methods (frequency, mean, standard deviation) and analytic methods (Pearson correlation coefficient and Manwhitney). Results: The results showed no significant relationship between total score of spiritual wellbeing or its religious dimension and depression, while there was a significant relationship between mean score of existential dimension of spiritual wellbeing with depression (r=0.160, p=0.024). Results showed that there was a significant negative relationship between spiritual wellbeing and the death anxiety (r=-0.229, p<0.001), religious dimension of spiritual wellbeing and death anxiety (r=-0.272, p<0.001) and the mean score existential dimension of spiritual wellbeing and death anxiety (r=-0.142, p=0.046).
