The first article in this series discussed the effects of cancer and its treatment of sexual function. However, impaired sexual function may also occur in the absence of any specific physiological change. As well as the patients’ perceptions of their disease, the attitudes of society and health care professionals, and the environment and culture within health care may contribute to sexual dysfunction in patients with cancer. This article will explore some of the wider issues surrounding sexuality and examine some of the reasons why this subject is so often poorly addressed.
