According to the National Cancer Institute, anywhere between 40% and 100% of patients with cancer experience some kind of sexual problem, depending on the cancer being treated. However, intimacy and sexuality after cancer is often overlooked by the medical community and is unspoken by patients and their caregivers. On this episode of Frankly Speaking About Cancer, Dr. Michael Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine joins host Kim Thiboldeaux for a frank and honest conversation on sex and intimacy after cancer treatment.
