Prostate cancer and sexuality - why does it matter who I have sex with?

Prostate cancer, and the treatments for prostate cancer, can have a massive impact on your sex life irrespective of whether you have sex with men or women or both.

If you are affected by prostate cancer and are a man who has sex with men, the information you are routinely given by your medical team might not be enough to ensure that you can make a fully informed choice about which treatment to have. Also, it might not be enough to ensure you do not put your health in danger (see information on biopsies).

Any problem with your prostate, including prostate cancer, can affect your ability to have sex - for example, you might have trouble getting or keeping an erection or it might be painful if you are the receptive partner ("bottom" / "passive").

As well as the disease itself the treatments that you can have for prostate cancer could also affect your ability to have sex. Being a man who has sex with men you will not be affected worse than other men but you can be affected differently.
