Bisexual and prostate

By David Artavia October 27 PM EDT There have been thousands of studies devoted to prostate cancer, but very few have focused on trying to understand the experiences of gay and bi men with prostate cancer. Simon Rosser, the book is the most current and comprehensive to date on the subject. In many areas of sexual health — for example HIV prevention and STI risk — our community has done a remarkably good job of educating each other. But then we hit these areas that are perhaps more emotionally difficult or socially taboo, and there is a huge silence. I think the biggest barrier in education [and] care has been confusion, secondary to changing recommendations on PSA testing and treatment. What changed?

Gay and Bisexual Men Living with Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer in gay and bisexual men

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in gay and bi men. Gay and bi men have worse EPIC urinary and hormonal function and worse hormonal bother, but better sexual function and better scores than published norms. In the inventory, two-thirds of participants described their sexual functioning, post-treatment, as fair to poor. Only 22 percent reported erections sufficient for insertive anal sex, researchers said. For receptive anal sex, one-third met criteria for anodyspareunia, the clinical term for pain while bottoming. More than half reported urination problems during sex or at orgasm.

Links Awards This book provides an overview of research and practice dealing with the specific needs of gay and bisexual men living with prostate cancer, as well as the special psychosocial needs of their partners. The intention is twofold: to provide insight into the unique experiences and concerns of gay or bisexual men living with prostate cancer in order to inform and assist future research, clinical practice and supportive care, and policy; and to ensure that the needs of gay and bisexual men are recognized and advanced on the mainstream prostate cancer agenda. Featuring both cutting-edge research and powerful portraits of gay and bisexual men living with prostate cancer, this book will be indispensable for health care, oncology, and mental health practitioners who seek to address their specific experiences and challenges.
Mistry et al2 have predicted that by prostate cancer is set to become the most prevalent of all cancers in the UK. There is a dearth of research and understanding concerning the needs and experiences of gay and bisexual men with prostate cancer. It should be noted that there are men who have sex with men MSM or other homosexually active men but non-gay identified, men in heterosexual relationships but are sexually active with men, and transgender women. The needs of MSM will require specific investigation. Although prostate cancer is often described as a male cancer, anyone who was born with a prostate can develop prostate cancer.
