Prostate Cancer in black men.

Prostate Cancer in black men.

Welcome back to season 2!

This episode I featured on DR Mo  aka MDO of a Slice of health podcast – talking about prostate cancer in black men. 

  • This was an amazing episode to discuss prostate cancer especially how it affects black men and how we can demystify the stigma associated with screening and testing⁣
  • 1 in 8 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime .

Prostate cancer does affect black men at a rate 4x compared to their Caucasian counterparts⁣

  • Although the PSA TEST is used in prostate cancer it is not that specific for prostate cancer with about 75% of men with a raised PSA not having Cancer.

Many thanks to @asliceofhealth for having me on this episode⁣

COVID-19 UPDATE

We have modified the way we practice in many ways to ensure the safety of our clients:  

  1. Mandatory Masks that cover mouth and nose for all clients and practitioners indoors from entry to exit of the facility 
  2. Clients are encouraged to wait in their cars until the practitioner is ready for their appointment and called upon
  3. Temperature of all clients is measured and those not within range will be turned away and asked to come back another time
  4. COVID form completion required by all clients
  5. Virtual Services are offered when possible (e.g. psychological, and physicians)
