Interventions for sexual problems following treatment for breast cancer: a systematic review.


Sexual functioning is an important element of quality of life. Many women experience sexual problems as a result of a breast cancer diagnosis and its treatment. Little is known about the availability and the effectiveness of interventions for sexual problems in this patient population. Six electronic databases were searched using Medical Subject Headings and keywords. Additional hand searching of the references of relevant papers was also conducted. The searches were conducted between October 2010 and January 2011. Papers were included if they evaluated interventions for sexual problems caused as a result of breast cancer or its treatment. Studies were only included if sexual functioning was reported using a patient-reported outcome questionnaire. Studies were excluded if sexual functioning was measured but improving sexual problems was not one of the main aims of the intervention. 3514 papers were identified in the initial search. 21 papers were selected for inclusion. Studies were of mixed methodological quality; 15 randomised trials were identified, many included small sample sizes and the use of non-validated questionnaires. Three main types of interventions were identified: Exercise (2), medical (2) and psycho-educational (17). The psycho-educational interventions included skills-based training such as problem-solving and communication skills, counselling, hypnosis, education and specific sex-therapies. Interventions were delivered to individual patients, patients and their partners (couple-based) and groups of patients. The widespread methodological variability hinders the development of a coherent picture about which interventions work for whom. Tentative findings suggest the most effective interventions are couple-based psycho-educational interventions that include an element of sexual therapy. More methodologically strong research is needed before any intervention can be recommended for clinical practice. Improved screening and classification of sexual problems will ensure interventions can be more effectively targeted to suit individual patient needs.

What are warts?

One of the most undisputed, but unusual, fact is that hypnosis can often be used to successfully get rid of warts. This is because warts are caused by a very specific said of human viruses. The presumption has always been that the use of hypnosis for medical applications is rather limited to only psychosomatic illnesses. However, warts are most deftly not the result of all-the-mind, psychosomatic disorders. One of the earliest cases involving warts being removed to the use of hypnosis happened during World War II. In that case, a medical doctor used the power of suggestion to facilitate...

What is health?

There are many ways to think about health. One definition states that it is merely about metabolic efficiency. Others consider that it is the absence of pain, injury, or illness. Regardless, it does refer to a general condition involving a person's mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, when good working definition would state that health is a situation or condition in which the mind, body, and spirit has achieved a state of balance, which is also called homeostasis. Essentially, we are a complex amalgam of integrated entities. This includes proteins, genes, cells, organs, our mind, and what...

Smoking marijuana and hypnosis

My comments about smoking marijuana are very similar to those that may previously about smoking cigarettes. A marijuana smoker was once introduced to the drug. At that point he or she experienced in neurological effects of their act. Whether this was done initially as a social event or murder cases and individual event, the continued smoking marijuana is reinforced as I habit due the repetitive nature, the neurological stimulation, and the social benefits. These seemingly positive attributes are sufficient to overcome any inhibition regarding health concerns (to include neurological damage),...
