Jan Shifren, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, answeredCancer treatments often produce a set of problems. Nearly half of the women who undergo treatment for breast or gynecologic cancer have some long-term sexual problems. For men, prostate cancer treatment causes erectile dysfunction about 85% of the time; however, these effects vary based upon the type of treatment the man chooses. His chances of returning to sexual functioning also depend heavily on his age, his health habits, and the priority he places on sexual activity.
