Summary of "Incidence and severity of sexual dysfunction among women with breast cancer: a meta-analysis based on female sexual function index."

Previous meta-analyses have examined the prevalence of sexual dysfunction among women with cancer, but there is no breast cancer (BC)-specific study. We therefore conducted a meta-analysis to examine the prevalence and severity of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) in women with BC.

Physiological disturbances in normal sexual performance in either the male or the female.

A form of discrimination in the workplace which violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sexual harassment takes two forms: quid pro quo, where the employee must submit to sexual advances in exchange for job benefits or be penalized for refusing; or a hostile environment, where the atmosphere of the workplace is offensive and affects the employee's well-being. Offensive sexual conduct may include unwelcome advances, comments, touching, questions about marital status and sex practices, etc. Both men and women may be aggressors or victims. (Slee and Slee, Health Care Terms, 2d ed, p.404). While civil rights legislation deals with sexual harassment in the workplace, the behavior is not restricted to this; it may take place outside the work environment: in schools and colleges, athletics, and other social milieus and activities.
