Abstract


Aim: To analyze the available evidence in the literature about the emotional aspects of the prostate cancer post-treatment period. Method: This is an integrative literature review. Data were collected in the period from May to June 2013 using LILACS, PUBMED/MEDLINE, CINAHL, SCOPUS and COCHRANE databases. Results: Of the nine selected articles, eight were published in English and one in Portuguese. Regarding the evidence level, five studies achieved level IV, two achieved level II and two achieved level VI. Discussion: Prostate cancer affects the mental health of patients by interfering with male sexuality, and may cause loss of sexual desire and erectile dysfunction. Conclusion: It is possible to identify the significant impact of cancer in relation to psychological and social factors in men's lives.
