FERNANDES, Maira Julyê Mota; CARVALHO, Gabriela Borges  e  FERREIRA, Cintia Bragheto. Impact of the diagnosis of cancer for men and women: a comparative study. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.2, pp. 68-83. ISSN 1677-2970.

The current study aimed to identify and describe the impact of the diagnosis of cancer for men and women, finding out to understand the similarities and differences between the two groups. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with eight men with prostatic cancer and eight women with breast cancer, who have living in Goiás. The interviews were recorded, transcribed, read exhaustively and posteriori organized, anchored in social constructionism, in the themes: the meanings of the health-disease-care process, the diagnosis, and the treatment and its implications. The results showed that the diagnosis of cancer caused negative feelings for both groups. Other factors were questions related to personal professional dimensions that were coping with religiosity/spirituality and in the relationship with loved ones. In addition, it was demonstrated that gender issues need to be considered in health care directed to the two groups researched.
