Black Men should Be Clear On Cancer

Wed 22 Oct 2014
By Isaac Borquaye

A #beclearoncancer campaign to increase awareness of #prostate cancer in black men is launching in London today. The campaign focuses on prostate cancer in black men during Black History Month.

1 in 4 black men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime compared to 1 in 8 of all men. The cancer has no obvious signs and 90% of black men are unaware of their higher than average risk of developing prostate cancer in their lifetime.

The great news is that if caught at an early enough stage, ti can often be successfully treated. Early diagnosis saves lives.

The campaign has been supported by Eastenders actor Rudolph Walker and former England football star Les Ferdinand to name a few.

Premier Gospel supports the #BeClearOnCancer campaign. For more information visit: nhs.uk/prostate
