Untold Struggles: The Silent Sexual Battles After Cancer Treatment

Published on

Amid Nigeria’s escalating cancer crisis, with the World Health Organisation reporting over 100,000 new cases and 80,000 deaths annually, a beacon of hope emerges. MYSP Nigeria, an innovative online healthcare platform, is revolutionising care for cancer survivors, addressing their comprehensive needs, including sexual and reproductive health.

The platform stands out in its holistic approach, recognising that cancer’s impact extends beyond physical health, affecting emotional, psychological, and relational dimensions. MYSP Nigeria provides diverse services, including counselling, educational resources, support groups, and specialised products, all tailored to help individuals navigate the complexities of life and intimacy post-cancer.

The initiative is part of a broader upsurge in cancer awareness in Nigeria, fueled by a coalition of stakeholders spanning government, NGOs, healthcare professionals, and the media. This collaborative effort has catalysed significant strides in funding, policy reform, infrastructure, and public education, all crucial for cancer prevention and management.

Through its discreet services, MYSP Nigeria aims to dismantle stigmas surrounding cancer-related sexual health issues, fostering a culture of dignity and compassion. One testament to their success is the heartfelt story of Sayo and Nneka (names changed for privacy), a Lagos couple who rekindled their intimate connection through guidance and resources provided by MYSP following Nneka’s battle with cervical cancer.

According to a report by Daily Post, their journey from struggle to renewal epitomises MYSP’s commitment to enhancing survivors’ quality of life. By offering a blend of empathy and expertise, the platform not only aids individuals and couples but also contributes to Nigeria’s larger fight against cancer, promoting prevention and early detection.

In partnership with various entities, MYSP Nigeria is shifting the narrative around cancer care, embodying the message that early detection and proper management can transform cancer from a presumed death sentence to a surmountable challenge.
