Preoperative Sexual Functioning and Quality of Sexual Life in Colorectal Cancer

While sexual problems are common among colorectal cancer patients, they are not necessarily caused by surgical treatment, Dutch researchers report. The patients may already have sexual issues before surgery.

Noting that there was not much information available on colorectal cancer patients? sexual function and quality of sexual life before surgery, the researchers aimed to describe these aspects for both patients and their partners. They also wanted to use standardized sexual health assessments and compare the scores of those patients and partners to mean norm scores.

To do this, they recruited 136 patients who had been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, but had not yet undergone surgical treatment. One hundred six of the patients? partners were also involved.

To measure sexual function and quality of life, the researchers used several questionnaires.

Male patients and male partners completed the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF), which assesses erectile function, orgasmic function, sexual desire, intercourse satisfaction, and overall satisfaction.

All of the women were given the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), which is used to evaluate arousal, lubrication, orgasmic function, sexual desire, sexual pain, and intercourse satisfaction.

Participants with partners completed the Golombok-Rust Inventory of Sexual Satisfaction (GRISS), which addresses the quality of sexual life. They were also given the Maudsley Marital Questionnaire (MMQ), which examines relationship issues.
Finally, all participants completed an adapted version of the Self-Administered Comorbidity Questionnaire, which provides data on any comorbidities.

Mean norm scores were provided in the manuals of each questionnaire.
The researchers found that when compared to mean norm scores, both male and female colorectal patients had lower scores on the sexual functioning and quality of sexual life domains on the given assessments. Female patients had lower sexual functioning and lower quality of sexual life than male patients. The partners also had lower scores in these areas when compared to mean norm scores. Male partners had lower scores than male patients.

The lower scores could be explained by stress, as there were not many differences between the scores of colon cancer patients and those with rectal cancer. Past research has shown high levels of stress in cancer patients and a link between psychological issues (such as stress, anxiety, and depression) and sexual dysfunction.
In spite of the lower scores, however, the participants? scores on relationship functioning were comparable to the corresponding mean norm scores, suggesting that the sexual issues did not seem to damage relationships.

The findings could help healthcare providers consider the sexual needs of colorectal cancer patients. ?More information provision and/or psychosexual guidance may be needed preoperatively in order to give license to couples to discuss sexual problems and to search for adequate professional support during any point in treatment, especially as the majority of patients do not take the initiative to discuss the treatment options for possible sexual dysfunction,? the authors wrote.

No sure shot formula of preventing cancer is there. Take a good nutritious diet. Fresh fruits, at least 5 types in a day, they have wonderful antioxidant properties and keep on repairing damaged cells in body. Vaccine against cervical cancer is proven to give 95% protection against cervical cancer. Certain cancer markers are available which help in early diagnosis of cancer. Avoid unnecessary medication and exposure to radiation.

You will need both vaginoplasty (making vagina tighter and smaller) along with hymenoplasty. This is safe and there are no scars out side, after some time no-one can identify. Mere hymenoplasty can not tighten roomy vagina. You can consult a plastic surgeon.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Is your father's treatment basis the Gmall protocol, already over? As far as I understand, targeted therapy with 'Rituximab' is used (often) along with chemotherapy for better clinical outcomes. This may be used either as a part of the initial treatment or as a part of the 2nd line treatment regimen. However, the decision to go for a targeted therapy is to be taken by your father's consulting physician/ haemato-oncologist, as would deem contextually appropriate. Above-mentioned apart, you may also evaluate options of an autologous/ allogenic stem cell transplant, once remission is achieved, with your haemato-oncologist. A stem cell transplant, if feasible in your father's case, may possibly help improve disease free survival. Should it require, please proceed for a second opinion suitably here. Simultaneously, also do note that an integrative treatment with natural/ alternative medicines is likely to influence outcomes too. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

Nasopharynx cancer is a very unusual type of cancer. In this medical condition, cancer cells affect the nasopharynx region, which is the uppermost part of your pharynx. The cells start growing from the upper region of the throat and can spread up to your head. Nasopharynx is a very important passage of your body placed right behind your nose, which connects your nose to your mouth and allows you to breathe. Thus, if this crucial region gets affected by the growth of cancer cells, severe difficulties and health problems may crop up.

The primary cause of nasopharynx cancer is infection. There are other causes, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, working with specific chemicals or wood dust.

The most common symptoms of nasopharynx cancer are mentioned below:
a) Difficulties in vision and speech
b) Ear infections
c) Nose bleeding
d) Loss of hearing
e) Frequent headaches
