To live a changed life : Men´s experience to live with prostate cancer (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Prostatacancer är den vanligaste cancerformen som drabbar män i Sverige. Sjukdomen skapar olika besvär som påverkar männens dagliga liv. Under sjukdomsförloppet upplever männen att de förlorar sin värdighet. Som sjuksköterska är det viktigt att se till hela patienten och ge en personcentrerad omvårdnad utifrån omvårdnadsdiagnoser. Syfte: Att belysa mäns upplevelse av att leva med prostatacancer. Metod: Litteraturstudie med kvalitativ design. Data hämtades från 12 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: Studien utmynnade i fem kategorier som männen upplevde: informationsbehov, förlorad värdighet, oro för egen dödlighet, upplevelse av olika stöd och anpassning av vardagen. Slutsats: Männens vardag påverkas av sjukdomen prostatacancer och de behöver stöd i olika former. Sjuksköterskan bör möta männen på deras nivå och ge männen en individanpassad omvårdnad.
