Prostate Treatments May Have Sexual Side Effects, But Patients Not Always Aware

Sep 05, 2018

In an interview with Reuters, lead author Dr. Simone Giona said, “We need to talk to patients about their expectations and offer the treatments that will help them, including new alternatives.”

“Patients should mention all their worries and discuss their sex life concerns. Urologists should get a full picture of what will make their patients happy,” Dr. Giona added.

The study was published online in April in the World Journal of Urology.
