  • Psychometric Properties and Analysis of the Masculinity Barriers to
           Medical Care Scale Among Black, Indigenous, and White Men

    • Authors: Charles R. Rogers, Ellen Brooks, Ethan Petersen, Pamela Campanelli, Roger Figueroa, Carson Kennedy, Roland J. Thorpe, Ronald F. Levant
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Non-Hispanic (NH) Black, American Indian/Alaska Native (Indigenous), and NH-White men have the highest colorectal cancer (CRC) mortality rates among all other racial/ethnic groups. Contributing factors are multifaceted, yet no studies have examined the psychometric properties of a comprehensive survey examining potential masculinity barriers to CRC screening behaviors among these populations. This study assessed the psychometric properties of our Masculinity Barriers to Medical Care (MBMC) Scale among NH-Black, Indigenous, and NH-White men who completed our web-based MBMC, Psychosocial Factors, and CRC Screening Uptake & Intention Survey. We conducted exploratory factor analysis on a sample of 254 men and multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) on a separate sample of 637 men nationally representative by age and state of residence. After psychometric assessment, the MBMC scale was reduced from 24 to 18 items and from six to four subscales. NH-Black men’s mean scores were lowest on three of four subscales (Being Strong, Negative and Positive Attitudes) and highest on the Acknowledging Emotions subscale. Compared with both Indigenous and NH-White men, NH-Black men had significantly lower Negative Attitudes subscale scores and significantly higher scores on the Acknowledging Emotions subscale. Compared with both Indigenous and NH-Black men, NH-White men had significantly higher Being Strong and Positive Attitudes subscales scores. This study expands on previous research indicating that, among racialized populations of men, endorsement of traditional masculine ideologies influences engagement in preventive health behaviors. Our scale can be tailored to assess attitudes to screening for other cancers and diseases that disproportionately burden medically underserved populations.

  • Attitude Toward Prostate Cancer Screening in Hong Kong: The Importance of
           Perceived Consequence and Anticipated Regret

    • Authors: Edmond P.H. Choi, Eric Y.F. Wan
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      There are long-standing debates about the benefits of prostate cancer screening. Conflicting trial results and inconsistent recommendations regarding prostate cancer screening in clinical guidelines highlight the importance of patient factors that influence decision making in prostate cancer screening. Attitude is an important factor associated with cancer screening. However, attitudes toward prostate cancer screening among Chinese men are still poorly understood. The objective of the study was to evaluate attitudes toward prostate cancer screening and their association with prostate cancer screening intention among Chinese men. In this community-based study, 340 males were randomly recruited. Three distinct concepts related to prostate cancer screening attitudes were evaluated, including perceived consequences of screening, moral obligation, and anticipated regret. The intention to have prostate cancer screening was asked. Only 5.00% of the study participants had prostate cancer screening before, while 69.71% have an intention to undergo screening in the future. Participants with a high level of anticipated regret also had a high likelihood to have screening in the future, with an adjusted odds ratio (aOR) of 1.82. Participants who had favorable attitudes toward the consequence of participating in prostate cancer screening had a high likelihood to undergo screening, with an aOR of 1.22. Participants who were more concerned about pain and invasion of privacy were less likely to have an intention to have prostate cancer screening, with aORs of 0.53 and 0.57, respectively. To enhance screening intention, public health programs should include components related to anticipated regrets and perceived consequences.

  • Marginalized Males, Disparate COVID-19 Outcomes, and Health Equity: A
           Profile of Highest Risk

    • Authors: Tyler Barnhart, Michael J. Rovito, Michael Maresca, Kathy Rovito
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      This paper is a direct response to Smith et al.’s (2020) call for more insight into health equity concerns pertaining to COVID-19 outcomes. The goal of this discussion is to offer the field with an evidence-informed ‘avatar’ representing the most-impacted group as it pertains to COVID-19 mortality and morbidity. Policy and practice implications are offered as a call to action for public health professionals to support these most impacted and highest risk communities.

  • The Voices of Black South African Men on Renal Dialysis at a Tertiary
           Hospital: A Phenomenological Inquiry

    • Authors: Jabu Mokwena, Tholene Sodi, Mpsanyana Makgahlela, Shai Nkoana
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      The study explored the psychosocial experiences of rural black South African men undergoing renal dialysis in a tertiary hospital. Twenty men aged between 20 and 59 years (Meanage = 40.65 yrs; SD = 12.52) participated in the study. Participants were recruited purposefully. Data were collected over a period of 4 months through in-depth face-to-face interviews and analyzed using the Interpretative Phenomenological Analytical method. The following three key themes were extracted from the interviews: (a) the emotional pain and fear of death following a diagnosis of ESRD; (b) living on dialysis interferes with the management and handling of “manly” responsibilities and duties and, (c) dialysis as a challenging yet life-saving measure. The findings further suggest that renal dialysis has an impact on men’s sense of masculinity and has the potential to complicate the management of renal failure. The paper concludes by recommending that cultural and community factors be taken into account when considering interventions to manage the health of men living with renal conditions.

  • The Development and Pilot of a Technology-Based Intervention in the United
           States for Father’s Mental Health in the Perinatal Period

    • Authors: Jaime Hamil, Emma Gier, Craig F. Garfield, Darius Tandon
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Paternal mental health is increasingly recognized as an important public health issue, with about 10% of men experiencing depression perinatally. Paternal depression is associated with less responsive parenting, greater parenting stress, and suboptimal child development. In response to a lack of existing interventions that directly focus on fathers’ mental health in the United States, we developed and pilot tested the Fathers and Babies (FAB) intervention for use with partners of women enrolled in home visiting (HV) programs.After a review of the extant literature, FAB was developed with input from HV stakeholders and infant mental health consultants. FAB was subsequently pilot tested with 30 father-mother dyads, with mixed-method data collected from a subset of intervention participants to assess intervention feasibility and acceptability and guide intervention refinement.Five themes related to FAB content and delivery considerations emerged from the initial focus groups that were used to guide FAB development. Mixed-method data collected during the pilot study established that fathers receiving FAB reported its content appropriate and thought it was feasible to receive the intervention. Several recommendations for FAB revisions were also provided.FAB is an innovative intervention developed for fathers from contemporary family structures that was well-received during its pilot testing. Feasibility and acceptability data suggest that fathers have favorable opinions about intervention content and delivery, while also highlighting areas for future revisions of FAB.

  • Forging Resilience to HIV/AIDS: Personal Strengths of Middle-aged and
           Older Gay, Bisexual, and Other Men Who Have Sex With Men Living With
           HIV/AIDS

    • Authors: R. Liboro, J. Despres, B. Ranuschio, S. Bell, L Barnes
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      HIV-positive gay, bisexual, two-spirit, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) have exhibited significant resilience to HIV/AIDS in Canada since the start of the epidemic. Since 2012, most of the research that has been conducted on resilience to HIV/AIDS has utilized quantitative methods and deficits-based approaches, with a preferential focus on the plight of young MSM. In order to address apparent gaps in research on HIV/AIDS resilience, we conducted a community-based participatory research qualitative study that utilized a strengths-based approach to examine the perspectives and lived experiences of HIV-positive, middle-aged and older MSM on their individual attributes that helped forge their HIV/AIDS resilience. We conducted 41 semistructured interviews with diverse, HIV-positive, middle-aged and older MSM from Central and Southwestern Ontario, Canada. From our thematic analysis of our interviews, we identified four themes, which represented personal strengths that fostered resilience to HIV/AIDS: (a) proactiveness, (b) perseverance, (c) having the right mindset, and (d) self-awareness with self-control. This article discusses the importance of these personal strengths to fostering HIV/AIDS resilience, and how community-based resources could potentially lessen the need to muster such personal strengths, or alternatively, cultivate them.

  • Predicting Anxiety from the Complex Interaction Between Masculinity and
           Spiritual Beliefs

    • Authors: Andrew Boxer, Peter Richard Gill
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Research suggests that adherence to traditional and hegemonic masculinities can be detrimental to men’s mental health. In particular, anxiety can result from the incongruence between idealised and lived experiences. Emerging research suggests that holding spiritual beliefs may protect against such anxiety. This Australian study investigated whether two aspects of spiritualism (Spiritual Openness and Spiritual Support) could moderate the relationship between four stereotypical masculine behaviours (Success Dedication, Restrictive Emotionality, Inhibited Affection and Exaggerated Self-Reliance and Control) and anxiety. A cross-sectional, correlational design, with a heterogeneous, Western community sample included 331 male participants aged 18–67 (M = 24.57, SD = 10.37). In partial support of the hypotheses, two significant moderation models were found. Both Spiritual Support and Spiritual Openness moderated the relationship between Exaggerated Self-Reliance and Control and anxiety. There were no significant moderations for Success Dedication, Restrictive Emotionality, and Inhibited Affection. Masculinity and spiritualism did not have significant direct effects on anxiety. These findings suggest that when working with men and their mental health, it may be important to consider the congruence between their behaviors and belief systems, as spirituality was only protective against anxiety where these beliefs were congruent with masculine self-reliance and control. It appears that the potential benefit of spirituality in reducing masculine anxiety is dependent on the man being more open to external supports, and having a lower need for control.

  • Examining the Association of Pain and Financial Hardship Among Older Men
           by Race in the United States

    • Authors: Chiho Song, Gillian L. Marshall, Alyssa Reed, Tamara A. Baker, Roland J. Thorpe
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Pain associated with financial hardship among older men varies by race. The purpose of this study was to examine the association of financial hardship with the presence of pain in men 50 years and older by race. Using the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) 2010 wave, bivariate and multivariate logistic regression models were used to assess the association between four financial hardship indicators and total financial hardship as a composite score, and the presence of pain by race. Among White men, the association between the presence of pain and hardship controlling for demographic factors was statistically significant across four indicators and one composite score: ongoing financial hardship (OR = 1.29, 95% CI [1.02, 1.64]), food insecurity (OR = 2.55, 95% CI [1.51, 4.31]), taking less medication due to cost (OR = 2.12, 95% CI [1.40, 3.22]), difficulty paying bills (OR = 1.36, 95% CI [1.07, 1.73]), and total financial hardship (OR = 1.27, 95% CI [1.12, 1.44]). Among African American men, the association between the presence of pain and taking less medication due to cost (OR = 2.99, 95% CI [1.31, 6.85]) was significant. With increasing comorbidities among older adults, particularly African Americans, it is imperative to fully understand the mechanisms of this underexplored area in both the pain and financial hardship literature.

  • Body Mass Index Changes in Relation to Male Reproductive Hormones:
           Longitudinal Results From a Community-Based Cohort Study

    • Authors: Yun Ye, Qun-Feng Liang, Jian-Hui Li, Jun-Biao Zheng, Xiao-Hua Yu, Shu-Cheng Zhang, Wei-Jin Zhou, Hui-Juan Shi, Guo-Qing Liang, Qian-Xi Zhu
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      The objective of the current study was to explore the relationship between longitudinal change in body mass index (BMI) and reproductive hormones in middle-aged and elderly Chinese men. A cohort study was conducted in a rural area of China. Local male residents aged 40–80 years were recruited at baseline in 2012 and were followed up in 2016. Information about weight, height, waist circumference, sex hormones, smoking status, and medical history were obtained. The change in BMI reported no significant relationship with the change in total testosterone (TT), calculated free testosterone (cFT), and bioavailable testosterone (BioT) in Pearson correlation analyses. When the change in BMI was divided into three groups—“great loss,” “normal fluctuation,” and “great gain”—TT, cFT and BioT had the highest increase (or the lowest decrease) in men with “normal fluctuation” in BMI compared with the other two groups. The advantage of maintaining a stable BMI was more evident for those who were overweight, non-smoking, and disease-free. There was a tendency of a continuous increase in cFT and BioT with BMI increase in smoking and diseased populations. Maintaining a stable BMI is associated with maintaining normal levels of reproductive hormones, especially in overweight, non-smoking, and healthy men aged over 40 years.

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Is a Significant Risk Factor for Central
           Serous Chorioretinopathy in Male Veterans

    • Authors: Bradley S. Gundlach, Irena Tsui
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      The primary aim of this study was to determine whether psychosocial factors, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety, are independently associated with the development of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR), a predominantly male eye disorder. A secondary aim was to verify previously determined risk factors in a veteran population. All CSCR subjects seen in one year at a veteran eye clinic were included. Chart review was performed to identify general health information as well as eye history. Univariate and multivariate analysis was performed to identify factors that were independently associated with the development of CSCR. Fifty-one cases of CSCR were identified and an additional 51 age-matched controls with healthy eyes were used for analysis. Multivariate analysis revealed that history of PTSD was strongly associated with the development of CSCR (OR = 9.43, p = .002), even more so than previously reported risk factors. Anxiety was significant at the univariate level (OR = 6.48, p = .001) but lost significance at the multivariate level. At the multivariate level, several existing risk factors were confirmed including sleep apnea (OR = 5.76, p = .004), heart disease (OR = 7.06, p = .004), smoking (OR = 5.52, p = .003) and steroid use (OR = 4.55, p = .005). PTSD was strongly associated with the development of CSCR in the veteran population studied and may represent an important modifiable risk factor.

  • Vegan Men’s Food and Health Practices: A Recipe for a More
           Health-Conscious Masculinity'

    • Authors: Kadri Aavik, Marta Velgan
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      In the age of the Anthropocene, questions of ecological sustainability, animal ethics, and human health are intimately entangled. From a gender perspective, compared to women, men’s diets tend to be less healthy and sustainable. This is linked to worse health outcomes for men. Therefore, alternative, more ethical ways of eating that have the potential to improve men’s health and well-being and simultaneously contribute to better public health and sustainability outcomes should be encouraged. Veganism addresses issues of food, health, climate change, and animal justice simultaneously.This article explores vegan men’s food practices in relation to health and well-being, drawing on qualitative interviews with 61 vegan men. The interview material was analyzed using the method of thematic analysis. Our findings suggest that becoming vegan encourages positive changes in men’s health behavior. This includes paying more attention to nutrition and taking better care of one’s health. Vegan men report experiencing better physical and mental well-being upon going vegan. Based on these findings, we argue that vegan men’s food and health practices contribute to the emergence of healthier masculinities, as vegan men help to challenge links between risky health behavior and masculinity.

  • Sexual Dysfunction and Gun Ownership in America: When Hard Data Meet a
           Limp Theory

    • Authors: Terrence D. Hill, Benjamin Dowd-Arrow, Christopher G. Ellison, Ginny Garcia-Alexander, John P. Bartkowski, Amy M. Burdette
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Although there has been no direct empirical evidence linking sexual dysfunction (SD) with gun ownership, speculation has been widespread and persistent for decades. In this paper, we formally examine the association between SD and gun ownership. Our primary hypothesis, derived from the psychosexual theory of gun ownership, asserts that men experiencing SD are more likely to personally own guns than other men. To test this hypothesis, we used recently collected data from the 2021 Crime, Health, and Politics Survey (CHAPS), a national probability sample of 780 men, and binary logistic regression to model gun ownership as a function of SD. Our key finding is that men experiencing SD are no more likely to own guns than men without SD. This interpretation was supported across several indicators of SD (performance anxiety, erection trouble, and ED medication) and gun ownership (personal gun ownership, purchasing a gun during the pandemic, and keeping a gun in one’s bedroom). To our knowledge, we are the first to have directly tested the association between SD and gun ownership in America. Our findings are important because they contribute to our understanding of factors associated with gun ownership by challenging the belief that phallic symbolism and masculinity somehow drive men with SD to purchase guns. Our results also remind us of the perils of gun culture rhetoric, which, in this case, function to discredit gun owners and to further stigmatize men with ED. We conclude by calling for more evidence-based discussions of SD and guns in society.

  • Comparison of 3- and 6-Month Outcomes of Combined Oral L-Carnitine
           Fumarate and Acetyl-L-Carnitine Therapy, Included in an Antioxidant
           Formulation, in Patients with Idiopathic Infertility

    • Authors: Marek Szymański, Tomasz Wandtke, Karolina Wasilow, Marek Andryszczyk, Radosław Janicki, Piotr Domaracki
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      The male factor is responsible for infertility in about 35–40% of all cases. Idiopathic oligo- and/or astheno- and/or therato-zoospermia is one of the most common male fertility disorders and remains a significant therapeutic challenge. The primary cause of idiopathic male infertility remains unknown but seems to be associated with oxidative stress. Objective: The use of antioxidative formulation to improve qualitative and quantitative deficiencies in the male gametes.In total, 78 subjects were treated with a combination of 1,725 mg L-carnitine fumarate, 500 mg acetyl-L-carnitine, 90 mg vitamin C, 20 mg coenzyme Q10, 10 mg zinc, 200 µg folic acid, 50 µg selenium, and 1.5 µg vitamin B12 (Proxeed® Plus, Sigma-Tau, Italy) for 6 months; the preparation was taken twice daily from the time idiopathic infertility was diagnosed. Basic seminal parameters were evaluated by a European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) -certified embryologist following the fifth edition of the World Health Organisation (2010) guidelines at three time points: at baseline and 3 and 6 months of treatment.Improvements in semen parameters (differing in terms of dynamics) were evident at 3 months and gradually improved over the 6 months of treatment. Each parameter: sperm concentration, total sperm count, sperm total and progressive motility improved significantly after treatment except for the percentage of sperm of abnormal morphology and ejaculate volume.Proxeed Plus was effective for patients with idiopathic infertility; however, a long treatment period is needed to achieve optimal results.

  • A Randomized Controlled Trial of Goal-Focused Emotion-Regulation Therapy
           for Young Adult Survivors of Testicular Cancer: Effects on Salivary and
           Inflammatory Stress Markers

    • Authors: Michael A. Hoyt, Ashley W. Wang, Elizabeth C. Breen, Christian J. Nelson
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Despite the substantial adverse psychological impact of testicular cancer, few interventions have sought to improve psychosocial functioning and stress-related biomarkers in young adult survivors. Goal-focused Emotion-regulation Therapy (GET) is designed to improve distress symptoms, emotion regulation, and goal navigation skills, which would be expected to improve regulation of stress-sensitive biomarkers. The aim was to examine the effects of GET versus an active control intervention on salivary stress and circulating inflammatory markers in young adult survivors of testicular cancer. Young adult men with testicular cancer (N = 44) who had undergone chemotherapy within the last 2 years were randomized to GET or individual supportive therapy (ISP) delivered over 8 weeks. Saliva samples were collected for 2 consecutive days at baseline and post-intervention (awakening, 8 hr later, bedtime) to measure diurnal rhythm. Circulating plasma levels of CRP, IL-6, IL-1ra, TNFαRII, and VEGF were measured at baseline and post-intervention. Regression modeling demonstrated a significant group effect on daily output of salivary cortisol (area under the curve) (β = −57, p < .05), with cortisol output decreasing from baseline to post-intervention for those receiving GET (Cohen’s d = 0.45). There were no significant intervention effects in salivary alpha-amylase. Plasma levels of IL-1ra were significantly lower post-intervention in GET compared to ISP; no other significant plasma effects were observed. GET, an intervention designed to promote goal-related and emotion-focused self-regulation, has potential to mitigate stress-related processes and inflammation in this young adult survivor group. More research is needed to determine efficacy.

  • Multiple Primary Tumors Originating From the Prostate and Colorectum A
           Clinical-Pathological and Therapeutic Challenge

    • Authors: Sorin Dema, Andreea Bota, Sorina Maria Tăban, Adelina Gheju, Alis Liliana Carmen Dema, Alexei Croitor, Robert Alexandru Barna, Oana Popa, Răzvan Bardan, Alin-Adrian Cumpănaș
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 15, Issue 5, September-October 2021.
      Considering that the incidence of colorectal (CRC) and prostatic cancer (PC) increases with age, metachronous and synchronous tumors can often affect the same patient. Despite the importance of this subject for the diagnosis and management of oncologic patients, in medical literature the data are scarce. The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence and the characteristics of double/multiple primary malignant tumors (D/MPMTs) with colorectal and prostatic origin, in patients admitted to a reference hospital in West Romania. A 4-year retrospective observational study (2016–2019) was conducted by analyzing the medical records of all patients admitted in the hospital. Demographic and clinical data, as well as tumor-related parameters, were extracted. We identified 413 consecutive hospitalized patients with PC, and 21 (5%) of them also had a primary CRC. At the time of diagnosis, the mean age of the patients with PC was 71.2 ± 6 years, and 71.8 ± 10 years for patients with CRC. Synchronous PC and CRC tumors were identified in 3/21 cases and metachronous tumors in 18/21 cases. Prostate cancer was the first tumor to be diagnosed in 13/18 cases and CRC in 5/18 cases. The most frequent subtype of PC was acinar adenocarcinoma (90%) and for CRC cases, conventional adenocarcinoma (90%). Prostate and colorectal cancers tend to co-occur in a single patient. The diagnosis of one of these two types of tumors should imply the screening for the other one, because these patients require a multidisciplinary and personalized approach.
