men often wonder about their ability to retainsexual function after the therapy for prostate cancer. let me explain orgasm after a prostatecancer treatment. patients who undergo treatment for prostatecancer often undergo surgery or radiation and these treatments can impact the sexualfunction. this includes affects on things like erectile function in addition some menmay notice a change in their ability to orgasm.
genitourinary, this includes a decrease in ability to achieveorgasm, some men noticing decrease in intensity of orgasm as well. controversially, some menactually have reported an increase in intensity of orgasm. whether or not this is solely aphysical affect of the prior therapy or whether or not other factors come into play such asanxiety or stress is not entirely clear.
some prostate cancers are high risk, aggressive,and more likely to spread. others are low risk, least likely to have bad outcomes. thebiopsy says cancer, but current diagnostic tools provide limited information about howaggressive a man's individual disease is, so most men decide to treat prostate cancerimmediately. once treated, many men experience serious long-term side effects like incontinenceand sexual impotence. immediate treatment is not always needed, but right now a mancan't be sure if his cancer is the kind that is likely to require treatment or if he isokay to wait for now. what if there was a test that could determine how aggressive prostatecancer is. genomic health is developing a new test to do just that. by reviewing theunderlying biology of the tumor and using
genes from multiple biologic pathways, thetest can predict the aggressiveness of prostate cancer when diagnosed, allowing a man to makea more informed treatment decision with confidence, taking care of himself with more informationand greater peace of mind.
