PROSTATE CANCER AND ITS IMPACT ON MEN’S LIVES IN CONNECTION WITH DIAGNOSIS : A literature based study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Prostatacancer är den vanligaste typen av cancer i världen och antalet drabbade ökar för varje år i Sverige. Diagnosticeringsprocessen av cancer är ett känsligt ämne för männen då det väcker existentiella frågor som leder till en förändrad kroppsuppfattning. Cancer kan också innebära en störning av hälsan och leda till ett lidande. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att belysa mäns erfarenheter av att diagnosticeras med prostatacancer. Metod: Litteraturbaserad studie baserad på tolv vetenskapliga artiklar med kvalitativ ansats. Resultat: Ur analysen framkom tre kategorier; diagnosen ett livsomvälvande besked, hantera sjukdomen är en krävande process samt kunskapsbrist skapar otrygghet med nio underkategorier. Diskussion: Det är viktigt att sjuksköterskan har kunskap om de känslor och informationsbehov männen upplever i samband med diagnosen och hur de kan möta detta genom en god kommunikation och stöd. Sjuksköterskan blir medveten om dessa erfarenheter och kan då främja hälsa och lindra lidande för männen. Slutsats: Männen upplever en omvälvande period fram tills ett behandlingsbeslut ska tas. De behöver egentid för initial hantering av diagnos följt av information och stöd. De upplever också en bristfällig sjukvårdspersonal under denna period.

Abstract [en]

Background: Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in the world and the amount of people affected in Sweden increasing every year. The diagnosing process of cancer is a sensitive subject and it leads to existential questions followed by a perceived change in the body image. Cancer could also lead to a disturbance in health and lead to suffering. Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate men’s experiences of being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Method: A qualitative literature study based on twelve research articles with a qualitative approach. Results: Three categories emerged from the analysis; diagnosis a life-changing result, handle the disease is a demanding period and lack of knowledge creates insecurity followed by nine subcategories. Discussion: It is important that the nurse has knowledge about the emotions and informational needs the men experience associated to the diagnosis and how they can meet these needs through good communication and support. The nurse becomes aware of these experiences and can then promote health and ease suffering for the men. Conclusion: Men experience a life-changing period from diagnosis to the treatment decision. They need time alone in order to cope with the diagnosis followed by information and support. They also experience a deficient medical staff during this period.
