Long-term effects of radiotherapy

A cancer diagnosis and radiotherapy treatment can affect sexual relationships.

It may be that feelings associated with sex have been affected, or physically things are different from how they used to be. An appointment at our clinic offers a safe space to talk about the changes that may have occurred, explore what this means to you and to look for solutions together.

If you have a partner these changes may have affected them as well. It can be helpful for them to come to the appointment, or you may wish to attend on your own.

The Pelvic Radiation Disease Association provides support and information for patients experiencing late effects of radiotherapy:
