Abstract

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most frequent sources of distress after treatment for prostate cancer (PCa), yet evidence suggests that men do not easily adjust to loss of sexual function over time. A hypothesized determinant of men s adaptation to ED is the degree to which they experience a loss of masculine identity in the aftermath of PCa treatment.
