PRIMO 2022 | Addressing complications during anticancer therapy

Don Dizon, FACP, FASCO, MD, Brown University, Providence, RI, gives an overview of complications patients can face when receiving anticancer therapy, including the genitourinary symptoms of menopause and sexual dysfunction. Surgical therapy, chemotherapy or anti-endocrine therapy can affect how patients perceive their body and may affect their sexual wellbeing as a result. Despite this topic not being broadly discussed by clinicians, sexuality represents an important aspect of patients lives and Prof. Dizon highlights the need to attend to these issues for patients to adjust to life post-treatment. This interview took place at the 7th Annual Practical Recommendations in Immuno and Molecular Oncology Meeting (PRIMO 2022).


Prof. Dizon reports consulting fees from Clovis, AstraZeneca, and Pfizer; and received clinical trial funding from Bristol Myers and Pfizer.
