About the study
One in three men have concerns about their sexual health after prostate cancer treatment. Many men are reluctant to get help for their sexual concerns, and when they do, often men do not continue with treatment. There is little research to help us understand men’s concerns about their sexual health after prostate cancer. Griffith University, Cancer Council and partners are working together to better understand men’s sexual concerns after prostate cancer treatment and how we can best give men the help they need
The Men and Sexual Health – Prostate Cancer study explores men’s sexual concerns, side effects after prostate cancer treatment, quality of life, and decisions to use services. After completing the initial online survey men are contacted at six months and 12 months for a follow up survey so that we can understand if men’s sexual concerns and need for support services change over time.
The information provided will help us to better understand men’s sexual function, satisfaction, quality of life and decisions to seek help after prostate cancer treatment. Which will ultimately assist us in developing support services tailored to these men.
