Black men and prostate cancer
Black men are more likely to get prostate cancer than men of other ethnicities.
In fact, 1 in 4 Black men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. We don’t fully understand why Black men have a higher risk of developing prostate cancer and we are investing in research to try and find more answers.
For men like Pastor George Crawford, it wasn't just one. His brothers were diagnosed too, and he watched them bury their heads in the sand. In this short film he tells you why it's important to know your risk and how he's working with Black Health Initiative and Prostate Cancer UK to get the message out there.
