Sexual health in long-term breast cancer survivors

This Norwegian study compares sexual health among breast cancer survivors eight years after diagnosis and explores the effects of age and systemic breast cancer treatment. As you can hear in this MEDtalk with Solveig Katrine Smedsland, Chief Physician, oncologists, post.doc, Oslo University Hospital, sexual enjoyment is poorer and discomfort higher among breast cancer survivors.

Premenopausal age, adjuvant chemotherapy, current endocrine therapy, and former aromatase inhibitor therapy are risk factors for sexual health challenges in long-term breast cancer survival.
