CONCLUSION: There are multiple overlapping psychosocial and healthcare system barriers to sexual recovery after prostate, bladder, and colorectal cancer treatment. Oncological providers must be cognizant of these complex barriers so they can facilitate patients' access to resources needed for successful sexual recovery after genitourinary cancer treatment. Evidence based interventions, such as couple psychosexual counseling and peer support should be implemented via multidisciplinary care. PMID: 32868190 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions The physical activity status of patients with colorectal cancer is not optimal. The correlated factors that nurses can take measures to improve are fatigue, body image, depression, perception of benefits/barriers, and self-efficacy, which may improve physical activity in colorectal cancer patients in China. Additional research is needed to determine if improving factors correlated with physical activity will assist with directly increasing physical activity. Implications for Practice Nurses should evaluate physical activity of colorectal cancer patients timely and play an active role in health promotion pr...

Abstract The intestinal microbial flora has risen to be one of the important etiological factors in the development of diseases like colorectal cancer, obesity, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, anxiety and Parkinson's. The emergence of the association between bacterial flora and lungs led to the discovery of the gut-lung axis. Dysbiosis of several species of colonic bacteria such as Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes and transfer of these bacteria from gut to lungs via lymphatic and systemic circulation are associated with several respiratory diseases such as lung cancer, asthma, tuberculosis, cystic fibrosis, etc....
