Abstract

Each of the four disorders discussed in this article emphasizes its significance in the morbidity and mortality of men. Recent research has improved the ability to identify many of the key risk factors that could predispose men to breast cancer, osteoporosis, male menopause, and eating disorders. There is a significant need for further research into each of these conditions, as most studies have been conducted on women. The myths that these disorders are just a feminist issue can be ignored no longer. Nurses are in a prime position to help men identify and analyze their risks and help them select appropriate prevention and screening strategies to improve their knowledge and quality of life.
