    Abstract

    Objective - To study the incidence of psychosexual symptoms in cervical cancer patients, treated with radical radiotherapy in Velindre Cancer Centre (VCC) and to identify services in Wales.

    The number of people surviving cancer is increasing and as a result people are living longer with side-effects of the treatment. Radiotherapy affects the physical and the psychological aspects of sexual function. Effective support services enable these issues to be identified and treated accordingly but their availability and effectiveness depends on location.
