About the Editors and Contributors

About the Author

Jane M. Ussher is professor of psychology at the Translational Health Research Institute at Western Sydney University.

Janette Perz is professor of psychology and director of the Translational Health Research Institute at Western Sydney University. B. R. Simon Rosser is professor and clinical/research sexologist specializing in gay men's health in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Heath at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. He pioneered the study of sexual function and dysfunction in gay and bisexual men, and he led one of the first NIH-funded studies in this field.


The challenges for gay and bisexual men with prostate cancer have remained poorly described for years - until this book. Covering multiple aspects of the diagnostic, treatment, and recovery periods, the studies presented illuminate the unique challenges for this population. The stories of individual gay men in the final chapters are especially poignant and highlight where the traditional medical establishment can improve services to these men.--Anne Katz, editor of Oncology Nursing Forum
