Because childhood cancer survivors have a higher risk of sexual dysfunction, the authors of this study aimed to describe the sexual health issues and investigate how these problems affect general health and well-being.

The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) is considered the “gold standard” tool for assessing erectile dysfunction (ED). While categories of ED severity have been suggested based on the IIEF, there is currently no standard way to evaluate minimal clinically important difference (MCID) or define an ED treatment responder. As a result, there is no objective way to determine whether ED treatment is effective.
