Black men are 69% more likely than White men to develop prostate cancer and twice as likely to die from the disease.

Current  tests often miss the more aggressive types of prostate cancer found in Black men.

Research has also shown that social inequality, such as quality of health care, lead to higher rates of prostate cancer death among Black men.

One in five Black men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
