In Italia si stima che ogni anno vengano diagnosticati 365.000 nuovi casi di tu-more, di cui il 48% femminili. I miglioramenti diagnostici e terapeutici hanno au-mentato il tasso di sopravvivenza e di conseguenza l’attenzione alla funzione ses-suale e riproduttiva, oltre che all’immagine corporea e all’impatto sulle relazioni. Seppur in letteratura siano note le disfunzioni sessuali maggiormente correlate ai tumori dell’utero, della cervice, dell’endometrio e della mammella, emerge una disparità di studi sulla salute sessuale delle donne con tumori alla mammella rispetto a quelle con neoplasie dei genitali interni. Obiettivo del contributo è presentare una rassegna della letteratura recente sulla sessualità di donne trattate per neoplasie della mammella con quelle dei genitali interni al fine di approfondire l’ottica di intervento utilizzata nelle diverse patologie. Si ritiene che futuri contributi siano auspicabili per ampliare la conoscenza scientifica in tale settore e per implementare interventi che tengano conto dell’unità mente-corpo, dell’impatto sulle rappresentazioni e sull’identità sessuata delle pazienti interessate da tutti i tipi di neoplasie.


Keywords: Tumori femminili, promozione, salute sessuale, approccio integrato, unità mente-corpo, biopsicosociale.
