BLACK MEN HIGHER RISK FOR PROSTATE HEALTH
It used to be true that prostate problems were common after age 50 but lately, younger men are now having prostate issues.
1 in 4 black men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. Black men are more likely to get prostate cancer than other men, who have a 1 in 8 chance of getting prostate cancer. You may also be more likely to get prostate cancer as a black man if: you are aged 45 or over – and your risk increases as you get older.
Prostatitis is the most common prostate problem in men younger than age 50. Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) is the most common prostate problem in men older than age 50.
