While football training may be a potent strategy for health promotion in older men, the considerable risk of injuries may constitute a barrier for referral of clinical populations. The current study explored the attitudes of men with prostate cancer on risk in the context of injuries related to participating in a community-based football program. Four videotaped focus group interviews, and three individual in-depth telephone interviews were carried out with men with prostate cancer (n=35; mean age 68.8). Thematic networks technique was used to derive the global theme Injury-induced reinforced masculinity comprising five sub-themes: "Part of the game", "A good story to tell", "Like boys again", "An old, carefree body", and "Camaraderie". Collectively, these themes explained how football injuries may reflect masculine ideals in some men with prostate cancer. The study indicates that injuries are largely acceptable to men with prostate cancer, especially those in search of a means for expressing their masculinity
