It’s not yet known why prostate cancer affects black men worse than their white counterparts, but if you’re a black man over 40, get yourself checked.
A 2013 study in the journal “Prostate Cancer” reveals that prostate cancer is the leading cancer among black men in the United States, Caribbean and Sub-Saharan Africa.

“In black men, prostate cancer is also more likely to be aggressive or advanced,” says the United States research organisation Mayo Clinic.
According to this organisation, prostate cancer mostly doesn’t cause any symptoms in the early stages. Prostate cancer that is advanced can cause symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, problems urinating, or blood in the urine.
Detected early,the prostate cancer can be treated with success.
When prostate cancer is detected early, before it spreads beyond the prostate, it can be treated successfully.
Spencer recommends that men go for an annual check-up from the age of 45. Men with a family history of the condition and black men are at an increased risk and should start their check-ups from the age of 40.
