Abstract

The recent recognition that many men experience sexual dysfunction following their diagnosis and treatment of genitourinary cancers, has led to the development multiple varied strategies that attempt to restore or preserve that function. In this manuscript we review the understanding of why it happens, highlight novel management strategies and discuss the concept of penile rehabilitation (PR) following prostate cancer (PCa) treatment, glans preserving strategies among men diagnosed with penile cancer and address the controversial issue of testosterone therapy in men with PCa.
