Prostate cancer is a highly inheritable disease with large disparities of incidence rates across different racial groups. Because testing for the genetic changes can help pick out men at high risk of prostate cancer, genetic testing could be of benefit to Black men.
Genetic testing can also help determine your risk and allows you to make smarter and more personalized treatment decision.
