Sexual dysfunction is strongly associated with outcome satisfaction after Prostate Cancer treatment. Treatment options for Prostate Cancer all have their advantages and disadvantages. Impacted sexual function is a common side effect regardless of the treatment approach taken. This is due to the close relationship of the prostate with the nerves, vascular structures and muscles that control an erection as well as other aspects of sexual function such as ejaculation and orgasm. Damage to these structures during surgery or from radiation therapy can result in debilitating sexual dysfunction that can negatively impact a man's quality of life. In this course, topic specialist Pierre Roscher will explore sexual function in males and the dysfunctions that can occur after prostate cancer treatment.
