Sexuality-related concerns may arise from the physical aspects of your disease or treatment, as well as from emotional aspects. Anger, guilt, or worry - about illness and survival, treatment or finances - may affect sexuality. Some physical or emotional effects resolve over time or when treatment ends. Other effects may be long-lasting.
