Am J Mens Health 2020 Jul-Aug;14(4):1557988320937215

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Conventional definitions of mental health, manhood, and social support create barriers to accessing behavioral health care for Black men ages 18 to 30. Targeted behavioral health interventions sensitive to culture, social norms, and gender that circumvent these barriers are desperately needed to improve access and integrated care for this group. This article reports mixed methods findings from the 2017 iteration of the Young Black Men, Masculinities, and Mental Health (YBMen) project, a social media-based, psychoeducational program that promotes mental health, progressive definitions of manhood, and sustainable social support for Black men.

The Relationship Between Perception of HIV Susceptibility and Willingness to Discuss PrEP With a Health Care Provider: A Pilot Study.

Am J Mens Health 2020 May-Jun;14(3):1557988320919661

Indiana University School of Nursing Bloomington, Bloomington, IN, USA.

HIV continues to be a significant public health concern and despite recent reductions in new HIV diagnoses, certain demographics continue to be disproportionality affected. Men who have sex with other men (MSM) account for the largest percentage of new HIV diagnoses; however, 24% of new diagnoses can be attributed to male-to-female sex, highlighting the need to explore the HIV epidemic beyond the narrow scope of MSM. A multivariate linear regression model was used to explore the perception of HIV susceptibility and level of comfort discussing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) with a health care provider among a sample of men living in the United States ( = 377).

Bridging Barriers to Cervical Cancer Screening in Transgender Men: A Scoping Review.

Am J Mens Health 2020 May-Jun;14(3):1557988320925691

School of Nursing, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Estimates of high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and susceptibility to HPV-related cancer in transgender men (TM) are comparable to prevalence rates found in cisgender women. Regular and thorough screening for cervical cancer is equally as crucial for TM as for cisgender women; however, despite continued risk for cervical cancer in TM and associated recommendations for screening, studies indicate disparities in rates of cervical cancer screening (CCS) in TM compared to cisgender women. The current scoping review explores TM's knowledge and experiences of CCS and barriers to screening uptake in this population. Read More

Centro de Investigaciones Endocrinológicas "Dr. César Bergadá" (CEDIE), CONICET - FEI - División de Endocrinología, Hospital de Niños Ricardo Gutiérrez, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

During adolescence, androgens are responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics, pubertal growth, and the anabolic effects on bone and muscle mass. Testosterone is the most abundant testicular androgen, but some effects are mediated by its conversion to the more potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) or to estradiol. Androgen deficiency, requiring replacement therapy, may occur due to a primary testicular failure or secondary to a hypothalamic-pituitary disorder. Read More

Retrograde Ejaculation-a Commonly Unspoken Aspect of Prostatectomy for Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy.

Am J Mens Health 2020 Mar-Apr;14(2):1557988320910870

Koren Enterprise, Ramot Hashavim, Israel.

The vast majority of men undergoing prostatectomy experience permanent retrograde ejaculation (RE). While newer, selective techniques of prostatectomy result in lower rates of RE by preserving the innervation to the urethra, the vast majority of men undergoing the classical techniques experience permanent RE due to destruction of the natural mechanisms preventing backflow of the ejaculate into the urinary bladder. A review of online information available to men reveals a lack of information on the importance of RE and explanation of the methods used for prostatectomy. Read More

Discipline of Nursing, School of Nursing and Public Health, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) is proven to reduce transmission of HIV/AIDS. Despite concerted efforts to scale up VMMC in men aged 18-49, the number of medically circumcised men in this age group remains suboptimal. Research has shown that several individual factors hinder and promote uptake of VMMC. Read More

The Yin Yang Role of Nitric Oxide in Prostate Cancer.

Am J Mens Health 2020 Jan-Feb;14(1):1557988320903191

Department of Urology, Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami, Miami, FL, USA.

Nitric oxide (NO) is a ubiquitous signaling molecule in the human body with well-known roles in many different processes and organ systems. In cancer, the two-concentrations hypothesis of NO has dictated that low levels of NO are cancer promoting, while high levels of NO are protective against cancer. Although prostate cancer is a hormonally driven malignancy, research has been shifting away from androgen-responsive epithelial cells and evolving to focus on NO therapies, the tumor microenvironment (TME), and inflammation.

No Ke Ola Pono o Nā Kāne: A Culturally Grounded Approach to Promote Health Improvement in Native Hawaiian Men.

Am J Mens Health 2020 Jan-Feb;14(1):1557988319893886

John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawai'i, Honolulu, USA.

In Hawai'i, Native Hawaiian men (kāne) have the highest death rate from colon cancer among all ethnic groups. While screening can prevent 90% of these cancers, data show that >58% of kāne over age 50 have never been screened. Prior research has demonstrated that community-based social networks may help kāne adopt healthy behaviors such as cancer screening, however, few studies have activated such an approach. Read More

Am J Mens Health 2020 Jan-Feb;14(1):1557988320903200

Department of Urology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Peking Union Medical College, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China.

Definitive diagnosis and selection of effective treatment for chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) are frustrations encountered frequently by urology care providers in their practice. Knowledge of etiology and pathophysiology is not sufficient and therapeutic guidelines have not yielded acceptable outcomes and prognoses for both patients and care providers. The authors present updated perspectives on CP/CPPS, including definition, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis, based on literature review and clinical experience. Read More

The Role of the Medicaid Expansion in the Use of Preventive Health Care Services in California Men.

Am J Mens Health 2020 Jan-Feb;14(1):1557988320903193

Center for Behavioral Research & Services, California State University, Long Beach, CA, USA.

Men's use of preventive care services may be constrained due to a number of factors including lack of health care insurance. California used the Medicaid expansion provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to enroll low-income men between the ages of 18 and 64 years in publicly funded health insurance. Most studies on the effect of the ACA on health care services have focused on racial/ethnic differences rather than gender. Read More

Use of Digital Health Information for Health Information Seeking Among Men Living With Chronic Disease: Data From the Health Information National Trends Survey.

Am J Mens Health 2020 Jan-Feb;14(1):1557988320901377

Department of Health and Kinesiology, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA.

Although diabetes education plays an important role in self-management for people living with diabetes, male health "help-seeking" lags far behind women. These gender-related "help-seeking" disparities often result in males being less engaged in their health care, which subsequently leads to poorer health outcomes among males. In this cross-sectional study, we used data from the 2017 Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) to identify factors that may contribute to communication inequalities between males and females.

Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA.

While the past two decades have seen rapid advances in research demonstrating links between environmental health and reproductive capacity, African American men have largely been overlooked as study participants. To give voice to the perceptions of urban African American men, the present qualitative study conducted focus groups of men recruited from street- and internet-based advertisements in Washington, DC. Participants were asked for their perspectives on their environment, reproductive health and fertility, and factors that would influence their participation in public health research. Read More
