Discussing the sexual consequences of treatment in radiotherapy and urology consultations with couples affected by prostate cancer
BJU International, 06/06/2011
Forbat L et al. – Sexual functioning was discussed infrequently in both clinic settings. Despite the presence of partners in nearly half of consultations, involvement of the partner tended to be minimal. Discussions of wider psychosexual concerns were marginalised in consultations, and there were limited opportunities for couples to discuss the specific impact of prostate cancer and its treatments on sexual functioning.
