Prostate cancer presents a significant health risk to American men of all ethnicities. It disproportionately impacts African American men, who have 1.5 times the chance of developing prostate cancer, develop prostate cancer at an earlier age, have more comorbidity factors, are initially diagnosed with advanced stage disease and are 2.2 times more likely to die from the disease than white men.

Understanding the commonalities and differences of men’s prostate cancer experience from different ethnicities is critical to engaging them appropriately and effectively.

The presentation explores the experience of men of different ethnicities going through prostate cancer care/treatment (patients, care partners and HCPs) to identify ways to engage and support them across stages.
