The purpose of this webinar is t
o examine quality of life for gay and bisexual men diagnosed with prostate cancer and how it compares to that of heterosexual men diagnosed with prostate cancer, to understand satisfaction with medical care and fear of cancer recurrence in this group of men, and to examine what accounts for changes in sexual activity and how gay and bisexual men feel about these changes after prostate cancer treatment.
