Abstract:
Background: Cervical cancer is one of the foremost causes of death among Nigerian women. Nigeria is a patriarch country where the partner’s approval is necessary before attendance to health-related services by the wife. It is essential to understand the role of male partner support in women’s utilization of screening and treatment of cervical cancer.
This study assessed men's knowledge, awareness, and attitudes toward cervical cancer screening of spouses.
Methods: A cross-sectional, descriptive study design involving 100 men using a structured, self-administered electronic questionnaire in a community-based medical outreach in South Western Nigeria. Data analysis used Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 22.
Results: Married men had little knowledge of cervical cancer risk factors, prevention, and treatment. Only 50% of the men perceived their partners at risk for cervical cancer. The majority would prevail on their spouses to seek medical help.
Conclusion: Men's exposure to the existence, prevention and available treatments are crucial in eradicating cervical cancer from our society.
