Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to this special issue of the Journal of Men´s Health that focuses on cancer prevention in men.

Recently there has been an increase in knowledge and publications outlining the evidence for cancer prevention through primary (mostly lifestyle and behavioral modifications) and secondary (increased access to cancer screening) interventions. However, the incidence of cancer is still rising, with projections for the annual global cancer burden to reach 28.4 million cases by 2040, indicating a rise of 47% from 2020.

Gender differences are also observed, with men at higher risk of cancer morbidity and mortality compared to women. This difference is especially apparent in transitioning countries. Both tailored strategies and participation in primary and secondary preventive interventions remain low in men, with the reasons for this still largely under-investigated.

We are pleased to receive your contributions for this special issue on cancer prevention in men. It provides an excellent opportunity to address the following topics:

· Primary cancer prevention strategies in men

· Cancer screening as secondary prevention in men

· Strategies for increasing participation in cancer prevention in men

· Public Health communication and messaging for cancer prevention in men

· Analyses from transitioning countries

We welcome original studies (both qualitative and quantitative), as well as reviews and meta-analyses. Technical papers focusing on public health policy and implementation are also welcome.

We hope this special issue will serve as a platform to showcase the latest results and allow scientific exchange.

Dr. Igor Grabovac and Prof. Anita Rieder
