2019 Membership Renewal
Almost 30% of male childhood cancer survivors have problems with erections later in life, new research suggests.
However, ED may be a "modifiable condition" for these men, experts say.
The study, recently discussed in JAMA Oncology, involved 1021 male childhood cancer survivors with an average age of 31 years. At least 10 years had passed since the men's cancer diagnosis.
Of 956 men for whom ED data was available, 29% met the criteria for ED.
