Psychosexual Functioning and Body Image Following a Diagnosis of Ductal Carcinoma In Situ
The Journal of Sexual Medicine, 07/20/2012
Bober SL et al. – Although it has been shown that women with ductal carcinoma in situ have a number of psychosocial challenges, results from this large–scale prospective study of women suggest that sexual function and body image may not be significantly negatively affected by this diagnosis. Of note, these results were also the case for women who underwent mastectomy and hormonal therapy. These findings are reassuring for both patients and physicians in the context of decision making about treatment options.
