How to deal with female cancer in a society where emotions are not easily discussed: a Japanese experience

Dr Miyako Takahashi

A cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatments have a deep psychosocial and physical impact on cancer patients and their partners. This presentation will discuss strategies to support the sexual health needs of women with cancer in clinical settings where sexual issues, sexual pleasure in particular, are not readily discussed. First, the results of several studies with Japanese women with breast cancer will be presented. Patient studies revealed that, despite the fact that sexual problems were prevalent and sometimes raised at cancer self-help groups and survivors’ mailing lists, only a minority consulted healthcare providers about these issues.
