In the United States, an estimated 191,930 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and 33,330 men will die from the disease this year1. Notably, African American men have the highest prostate cancer incidence rate of any racial or ethnic group in the world2. In fact, the incidence of prostate cancer is about 60 percent higher in Black men than Caucasian men for reasons that remain unclear3. While scientists are trying to better understand the biological reasons behind why prostate cancer disproportionately affects Black men, promising new research may offer hope for thousands of African American men in the advanced stage of the disease.
