Black Men and Advanced Prostate Cancer

African-American men may have the highest rate of prostate cancer incidence in the world. In addition, their prostate cancer mortality rate is twice as high as the rate for white Americans. Which is to say, that twice as many Black men are diagnosed with Advanced or Recurrent Prostate Cancer than White men.

The causes of higher rates of prostate cancer among African-American males are largely unknown. An NCI study found that even when income and education are controlled for, African-Americans have much higher rates than whites.
