A program for
Cancer and Non-Cancer Patients
Your entire health is important to us, and that includes your sexual health. Evidence suggests that sexual satisfaction is positively associated with improved health outcomes later in life.
Men commonly experience sexual health changes during their lifetime. These may include a decrease in libido (desire to engage in sexual activity), or a change in the ability to physically participate in sexual activities. The changes may be the result of age, or they could be caused by medications or a chronic illness such as diabetes or cancer. The Men's Sexual Health Program at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center is here to help, offering resources and treatment options for both cancer and non-cancer patients.
Our Men’s Sexual Health clinic provides a safe space to discuss any sexual health issues your are experiencing or questions you may have regarding achieving a satisfying sex life.
With a specialized team trained in treating men with sexual health dysfunction from both malignant and non-malignant causes, we will design a customized treatment plan to meet your individual needs and goals.
The following conditions are often seen and successfully treated in this clinic:
- Delayed ejaculation
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low libido
- Low testosterone
- Post-prostatectomy incontinence
- Peyronie’s disease
- Premature ejaculation
- Testicular pain
What to Expect
Any male patient age 18 or older is welcome to come for a consultation. You do not need to have a cancer diagnosis to be seen at Baptist MD Anderson’s Men’s Sexual Health Program.
Men can also be seen before undergoing surgery or radiation treatment if they would like to understand the potential sexual side effects.
As part of our program, we also offer the following resources.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can help reduce duration and severity of urinary incontinence in men.
We believe that healing and maintaining your health requires focusing on the
entire body, and that includes sexual health.
