Sexuality after breast cancer

You may have concerns about sexuality after breast cancer. Aside from body image, some treatments for breast cancer, such as chemo, can change a woman's hormone levels and may reduce her sexual interest or response. Treatment for breast cancer can also affect the pleasure a women gets from having her breasts touched.

Please remember that every woman reacts in her own way. Your feelings are not right or wrong, they are simply yours. For more information, see Sexuality for the Woman With Cancer.
