Sexual health and intimacy are integral aspects of being human. There are many ways that a prostate cancer diagnosis can impact sexual health and intimacy, for both the person diagnosed with cancer and his partner. In this presentation, an overview of the potential changes in sexual health and intimacy that can occur after a prostate cancer diagnosis will be discussed. Strategies and therapeutic options (pharmacological and non–pharmacological) to help manage sexual health concerns will be shared.
