Prostate cancer makes up about 37% of all cancers in Black men. Around 1 in 6 will be diagnosed with the disease at some point in life. It’s more common in Black men than other racial/ethnic groups.

The disease is also deadlier for Black men. They’re twice as likely to die from prostate cancer compared to men of other races. That’s the biggest racial disparity in deaths from any cancer in the United States.

When it comes to prostate cancer, Black men are also more likely than other races to:

  1. Be diagnosed at an earlier age
  2. Have fast-growing, or high-grade, tumor cells
  3. Have prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (called advanced or metastatic cancer)
