"Unmet Needs" of Cancer Survivors Include Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual Medicine - Discounted Publishing Rate Still Available for ISSM Members
A recent study has revealed that physical and personal control problems are among the "unmet needs" of cancer survivors.
Both of these categories include sexual dysfunction.
American scientists analyzed the results of the 2010 Survey of Cancer Survivors II, conducted by the American Cancer Society.
In particular, they examined over 1,500 responses to the open-ended question: "Please tell us about any needs you have now as a cancer survivor that ARE NOT being met to your satisfaction.”
Fifty-four percent of respondents identified physical or personal control problems. These issues were common among prostate cancer survivors and participants over age 65.
Prostate cancer survivors often reported that sexual dysfunction and incontinence were problems for them.
The study was first published online in January in Cancer. Please click here for more details.
