Resumo: Introduction: Sexual dysfunction caused by BC and its various forms of treatment is present in up to 60% of patients. Currently, sexuality is still a topic that is neglected, and physicians often avoid dealing with it due to lack of time, knowledge and expertise in addressing it. Objectives: To assess the sexual health of BC survivors and their degree of interest in receiving medical help to address and treat their sexual problems. Materials and Methods: The study included patients diagnosed with early breast cancer attended at the Mastology Unit of the Oncology Department of the Hospital de Clínicas. The questionnaire selected is the one used at the University of Chicago Medical Oncology Clinic. Results: Two hundred patients were included, most were over 50 and had a partner, 160 patients (80%) were sexually active in the last 12 months and 140 (87%) had sexual problems. The majority (136 patients, 68%) reported that sexuality was important in their lives, 174 (87%) were interested in receiving support to address their sexual difficulties, and 146 (73%) considered it likely that they would address these with a physician. However, only 58 (29%) had sought medical help to treat them, and most were dissatisfied with the care received. Eighty percent (160) would be willing to participate in a program aimed at confronting sexual problems. Conclusions: Our results reveal the need for medical care regarding the sexual health of patients diagnosed and treated for BC. Future studies should focus on developing and assessing the success of specific interventions in the treatment of sexual dysfunction in these patients and, more importantly, designing strategies for its prevention. ,
