Breast Cancer Survivors Face Sexual Concerns

In their report, both societies outlined their Breast Cancer Survivorship Guideline, which addresses sexual and body image concerns, among many others. This document helps doctors better understand the needs of survivors.

Fortunately, sexual health concerns can usually be treated. Water-based lubricants and moisturizers can relieve vaginal dryness and make sex more comfortable. Prostheses and wigs may boost women’s confidence in their bodies. Counseling and sex therapy help women cope with stress, anxiety, and other emotions.

If you or someone you know is struggling with life after cancer, be sure to reach for support.
