Objective: To report psychosocial differences between self-reported HPV-positive and HPV-negative Florida men. Method: Men (n=536) in an HPV natural-history study completed a cross-sectional survey (2007-2010). Results: Most participants were white, non-Hispanic, and unmarried with some college education. HPV knowledge was high overall. HPV-positive men reported more negative emotions and perceived threat (P<0.05). HPV-negative men were more likely to disclose test results. Most men (91%) reported strong intentions for the HPV vaccine if it became available for men. Conclusions: Men reported an array of responses to HPV tests with intentions to receive the HPV vaccine. Findings are important for HPV-related health messages for men.
