Are you a man with cancer?

Are you a man who has been affected by a male specific form of cancer?

If so researchers from Glasgow Caledonian University would like to hear from you!

Every year, thousands of men are diagnosed with and treated for prostate, testicular and penile cancer.

These forms of cancer, unique to those born as men, occur across all ages and impact individuals in various ways

In order to recognise and tailor the support needs of those affected by these types of cancer, researchers from Glasgow Caledonian university are keen to hear from men who have completed treatment and are willing to talk about thier experience.

What's involved in taking part?
If you are over 18, have undergone and completed treatment for prostate, testicualr or penile cancer and it has been at least six months since your treatment finished, then you may be eligible to take part.

Willing participlants will take part in a one to one interview (a bit like a conversation). You will be asked some questions about your diagnosis and treatment expereince, including difficulties you experienced and how you felt about your communication with helathcare professionals involved in your care.

This will either be face to face on GGU campus or via telephone with a female researcher. Interviews will last for approx. 1 hour and will be aranged at a date and time that suits you.

What else do I need to know?
Participation is completely voluntary, you don't have to answer any questions you don't want to and you can opt out at any time.

With your permission, the interview will be audio recorded and afterwards, the interview will be typed up and any names will be changed.

Your contributons will form part of a report published in a public article in the hope of helping inprove men's expereinces in the future.
