The number of women surviving or living with cancer has significantly increased through the years. Treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonal therapy contribute to pelvic dysfunctions such as sexual pain, anatomic alteration, neurologic, myofascial and pelvic organ injury. Asking the right questions and performing a thorough physical examination are essential steps in addressing the concerns of these women. This workshop will go over the literature of treating pelvic dysfunction in women surviving or living with cancer and provide assessment and treatment options to enhance the quality of life in this under serviced population.
