Sexual Function, Incontinence, and Wellbeing in Women after Rectal Cancer--A Review of the Evidence
The Journal of Sexual Medicine, 08/21/2012
Panjari M et al. – There is a gap in the authors' knowledge of the effects of rectal cancer and its treatment on urinary and fecal continence, sexual function and quality of life in women. There is a need for studies of sufficient size and duration to gain a better understanding of the disease and its management and the long–term effects on these parameters. This information is needed to develop preventative health care plans for women treated for rectal cancer that target those most at risk for these adverse outcomes.
