Purpose: Improved long-term survival of colorectal cancer patients (CRC) treated with surgery and/or chemotherapy +/- radiotherapy (RT) has led to increased awareness of Long-term side effects, including effecting sexual life, which can ultimately affect the quality of life in these patients. Because the absolute risk factors of erectile dysfunction (ED) have not been defined in CRC patients, the aim of this research was to identify the severity and the absolute risk factors of ED in male CRC survivors.
