Sexuality and intimacy issues with breast cancer
You may not feel like having sex or being intimate when you’re going through an uncertain time like breast cancer treatment. The supportive care clinicians at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) understand how breast cancer and its treatment may affect sexual relationships and intimacy, both for you and your partner. Hands-on therapies like massage may help soften scar tissue and boost your self- image. Speaking with a mind-body therapist may also help you find new ways to connect emotionally and physically to improve intimate relationships.
