Sexuality concerns: cancer-related
Also known as:
Cancer-related sexuality concerns
Find support at Providence Cancer Support Services.
The view you have about your body (your body image) may change when you have cancer. It is normal to be angry, frustrated or disappointed after cancer surgery or during treatment for cancer. For example, surgery to remove a breast may profoundly affect a woman's body image, because the appearance of the female breast is emphasized in our society.
Sexual problems can be caused by physical or psychological changes related to the cancer or cancer treatment.
