Abstract [en]

This article focuses on social, psychological and sexual experiences of 47 men before their partner was treated for cervical or endometrial cancer and 1 year later. As a complement to the interviews the men completed a symptom check-list. Before initiation of treatment, a great majority of the men were in psychological crisis. The number of psychological symptoms decreased from the first to the last interview. Symptoms with psychosomatic character increased, however, considerably. In the endometrial group, several had intrapsychic problems, while interpersonal problems were more common in the cervical group. Both groups found it difficult to know how to behave and how to communicate with their partner, friends and acquaintances. A majority had nobody to whom they could speak honestly, and most did not obtain basic information about their partner's disease. The experiences of intercourse were much more negative after completed treatment and a majority described impaired sexual desire. Provided that the woman herself desires it, the coping and rehabilitation of the woman, the man and the couple would improve if the male were integrated in the care program from the moment the diagnosis of cancer is made.
