Prostate cancer is not often a cause of erectile dysfunction (or ED). However, treatments for the disease can cause it. The current methods of treating prostate cancer, including surgery with radical prostatectomy, radiation therapy -- whether by external beam or brachytherapy -- and hormone therapy, can all cause ED. The current treatment options for erectile dysfunction for people who have received treatment for prostate cancer include:
  • Intracavernous injection therapy
  • Intraurethral therapy
  • Penile prosthesis
  • Pills, including Cialis, Levitra, Stendra, Staxyn, and Viagra
  • Vacuum constriction device
