Hello. My husband was diagnosed rectum cancer. He should start with his treatment, but he is worried that cancer therapy might cause sexual dysfunction. His treatment option is abdominoperineal resection. What do you know about this? I would really appreciate your advices. Your help is more than welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Hello. Men with pelvic cancers have more chances to have sexual dysfunction than others. When I say pelvic cancer, I mean on bladder cancer, rectal cancer, prostate or colon cancer. Older men, older than 60, have also more chances to experience sexual dysfunction than younger ones. However, this can be in many cases related to aging, not cancer treatment. Sexual dysfunctions can be: inability to get or maintain an erection, orgasm without ejaculation (dry orgasm), weaker orgasms, loss of libido, pain during sex, etc. Your husband should talk about this with his surgeon or other doctor. I hope his treatment will have positive outcome. I wish him all the best! Bye!
