About this book

The average physician and even cancer care-givers are not knowledgeable about the effects of cancer treatment on sex and reproductive life. They are even less aware of the options available for treatment of such patients. Cancer and Sexual Health fills a great need for a reference work devoted to the link between cancer and human sexuality. The volume is designed to give a comprehensive and state-of-the-art review of the sexual and reproductive consequences of cancer diagnosis and treatment. It will prove an invaluable resource for those clinicians caring for cancer patients as well as acting as a reference text for the sexual medicine clinician who may not see a large number of cancer patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Nearly 100 internationally recognised contributors … collected an impressive amount of information useful for sexual medicine clinicians, urologists and oncologists. The book is divided into five parts. … All pharmacological, nutritional, surgical and psychological strategies were exhaustively considered including current and future options. This outstanding textbook succeeded in its aim and we recommend this as a reference to clinicians involved in cancer management or in urology-andrology for them to obtain valuable information which can be useful in clinical practice.” (European Eurology Today, October/November, 2011)

“Cover the issues of sexual function before, during, and after cancer treatment. … appeal to primary care practitioners, surgeons, urologists, gynecologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, endocrinologists, social workers, and lay people. … chapters are so well written and illustrated that a person without a medical background could understand it. … This book should be an important part of the library of every clinician … . an excellent resource and has very broad appeal to numerous specialists, clinicians, and even lay people. There is something here for everyone.” (Jack Henry Mydlo, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2011)
