Summary An ethnographic study of thirty-five Anglo-Australian men diagnosed with prostate cancer. Participants shared their experiences of living with prostate cancer in the context of health promotion, health services and in relation to their sexuality and intimate relationships. Participant photographic novella and in-depth semi-structured interviews provide rich cultural insights. A social constructionist gender analysis is used and shows how the social constructions of masculilnity interconnect and occasionally collide with prostate cancer throughout the illness trajectory.
Notes A five page "response to examiners comments" included inside back cover.
