Men face a dilemma between showing they 'don't care' about health issues and realising they 'should care'. The ways men resolve this dilemma, how they justify caring for their health and engaging with health services has implications for practice. It is important that health professionals take the time to understand how this dilemma impacts on men's health practices in order to generate opportunities for effective health work with men.
