Sexual Concerns of Cancer Patients

Date: Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Time: 12:00 PM ET

Presented by Leslie R. Schover, PhD, this webinar will highlight:

• The most common sexual problems faced by cancer patients and survivors
• Cancer treatments that most increase the risk of sexual dysfunction
• Treatment options available

Sexual problems affect at least half of male and female cancer patients or survivors. They tend to be severe and long-term, and do not improve without treatment. Usually problems begin with physiological damage from cancer treatment, but a person’s sexual history, coping skills, and relationships are major influences on sexual outcomes. Unfortunately, most oncology patients lack accurate information on this topic, and it remains high in surveys of unmet needs after cancer treatment.
Oncology nurses can play a crucial role in giving patients basic information and ensuring that they are referred for expert specialty care. The optimal treatment program is multidisciplinary, with medical treatments from a gynecologist, urologist, or sexual medicine specialist as well as cognitive-behavioral counseling from a trained mental health professional. This presentation will summarize the most common sexual problems, the cancer treatments that most increase the risk of sexual dysfunction, and the treatment options available.


Leslie R. Schover, PhD, is a clinical psychologist with a special interest in sexual problems and infertility-related distress after cancer. Professor of Behavioral Science at the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center, she has been a pioneer in developing and evaluating reproductive health services for cancer patients and survivors.
Dr. Schover’s research has focused on understanding, preventing, and treating cancer-related sexual dysfunction in men and women and on helping cancer patients cope with the impact of treatment on fertility. Recent projects have focused on interventions using multimedia, interactive platforms or peer counseling.
