The probability of developing malignant neoplasms increases with advancing age. Especially when malignant tumours in the abdomen and pelvis occur, the functionality of the pelvic floor and continence organs can be affected by therapy. Important treatment pillars are oncosurgery and radiotherapy with a high risk of alteration. When using neurotoxic substances, drug therapy may also cause damage. However, as a result of improved medical care and treatment our society is increasingly ageing. More and more elderly people who survive oncotherapy want to retain their sexual function and a high quality of life. Patients with oncological diseases need our special attention. A systematic routine assessment serves to quickly determine problems and find solutions. Surgical, drug, technical and innovative therapy approaches of regenerative medicine can significantly improve the quality of life of patients who are already burdened by the tumour. Therefore, a paradigmatic change in the perception of these patients is needed.
