Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK with incidence rates projected to rise. Black men are at least twice as likely to develop prostate cancer as white men and the mortality rate is twice as high, evidencing substantial cancer inequalities. Although there currently is no national screening programme for prostate cancer, it is vital that black men are aware of prostate cancer and their elevated risk as this can encourage help-seeking behaviour, and in turn early diagnosis. Early diagnosis can save lives, yet black men tend to present at later stages. This study aims to investigate barriers and facilitators to early diagnosis of prostate cancer for black men in order to tackle this cancer inequality.
