Sexual dysfunction following cancer – the role of physiotherapists

Pelvic health specialist physiotherapist Debbie Dillon talks about her work with patients who are experiencing sexual dysfunction following treatment of gynaecological and prostate cancer.

Many survivors of gynaecological cancers experience long-term effects on their pelvic health including effects on continence and sexual function, due to treatments such as surgery and radiotherapy. Understandably, while undergoing cancer treatment, patients and clinicians are very much focused on the curing the disease itself. In Debbie’s experience, following successful treatment, many people are then reluctant to seek treatment for sexual and pelvic health issues if they find themselves affected.
