Sexual Function in Cancer Survivors: Updates to the NCCN Guidelines for Survivorship

Michelle E. Melisko and Joseph B. Narus

By the year 2024, predictions estimate that there will be approximately 19 million cancer survivors in the United States, many of whom will experience the physical and/or psychosocial long-term effects of cancer and its treatment. Although sexual dysfunction is common among these individuals, causing increased distress and negatively impacting quality of life, this critical part of survivorship care is often underrecognized and undertreated. At the NCCN 21st Annual Conference, Drs. Melisko and Narus reviewed the sexual function recommendations in the NCCN Guidelines for Survivorship, offering practical strategies for assessing and managing both female and male sexual dysfunction.
