Sex and Men With Cancer: Overview
Sex is an important part of life. Sex affects our zest for life and how we feel about ourselves. Yet patients and doctors often don’t talk about how cancer treatment affects a person’s sex life.
You may have concerns about your sex life. But you may have trouble talking about it. Here we will help you learn more about cancer and sex, so you can start talking with your partner, doctor, and cancer team about your sex life and any problems you could have.
Just what is “normal” anyway?
People think about sex differently and they have sex in different ways, too. This makes it hard to say what’s normal. Normal for you and your partner is whatever feels right to both of you.
