Formatted Abstract/Summary
Erectile dysfunction (ED) associated with ­cancer therapy is commonly encountered whenever ­surgical interventions, radiotherapy, or systemic chemotherapy compromise the pelvic blood vessels or nerves. Currently, available treatment modalities frequently achieve long-term cancer remissions, and as a consequence, with advancing age patients are likely to face sexual dysfunctions and suffer their devastating effects on quality of life (QoL) long after the cancer treatment has been completed. The diagnosis of cancer is tough to overcome, but when its therapy results in alteration of basic bodily functions, it can be hard to deal with for patients and their partners.
