Raising awareness of prostate cancer with and for black men

Prostate cancer affects 1 in 4 men from Black African, Caribbean and Black British communities, which is higher than the 1 in 8 men from other communities. Black men are also less likely to act on their symptoms and visit the doctor, this means that if they have cancer then this can be harder to treat. The presentation on this page sets out this issue in more detail.

Involving People is supporting Wessex Cancer Alliance and Dorset Race Equality Council on this project, working together with a group of Black men, their partners and other organisations to make sure men are aware of this.  We are listening to what they tell us about accessing health services, what they know about prostate cancer, and how we can all make sure men have the right information to decide what they need to do if they have concerns.
