March is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Prostate cancer has a big impact on Black men. For example, 1 in 4 Black men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime, compared to 1 in 8 men of other ethnicities. Black men aged over 45 are at a heightened risk of prostate cancer and family history also heightens the risk of prostate cancer. In males in the UK, prostate cancer is the most common cancer, with over 50,000 new cases every year (CRUK)

The good news is prostate cancer can be detected early and treated. You can request a PSA test from your GP, which can identify if any issues need further investigation.

For more information on prostate cancer and how to get support, visit the Cancer Matters Wessex website.
