Further Details
Abstract Objective: To analyze the approach about male health, masculinities and their relation to laryngeal cancer in the national scientific publications, to present the characteristics of such publications, to point out the existing gaps, and indicate the implications for nursing. Method: Bibliographical study using the following databasis: SciELO, Lilacs and BDENF. Articles about health, masculinity, male health and laryngeal cancer were included. Results: Nineteen articles were found and sixteen analyzed. Three categories emerged: masculinities, epidemiology of laryngeal cancer, and its relation to masculinities, male health and the relation with the health, disease and care process. Studies indicate preventive actions as well as actions to promote health in different areas of care. Conclusion: studies whose goal is to deepen the investigation of such themes are suggested, since literature pulverizes the approach.
