OLIVEIRA, Pâmela Scarlatt Durães et al. Prostate cancer: knowledge and interference in the promotion and prevention of the disease. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.54, pp.250-284.  Epub Oct 14, 2019. ISSN 1695-6141.

The article aimed to describe the men’s perception about prostate cancer and related prevention factors. This is a qualitative community trial type study. Three meetings were held in the form of a focus group, composed of 60 men aged over 40 years old, addressing the topic of prostate cancer. In order to analyze the qualitative data, thematic content analysis was performed and the data were organized in the software - Atlas Ti. The results were referenced in the objectives of this study and emphasized into categories. The data showed that there is still a physical and social barrier to overcome with male stigmas, and there is a lack of knowledge about the prevention of this cancer. The increase in the availability of diagnostic tests, agility in care, and differentiated schedules for workers are some of the efficient strategies to attract this population to the prevention of prostate cancer.
