PROSTATE & TOTAL HEALTH ARE TIED TOGETHER
We work hard to provide for ourselves and those around us. Despite the many barriers we face, we always find a way to persevere.
What's one problem that threatens our progress? Prostate cancer (PC).
When it comes to PC, it's about "talking the talk and walking the walk," if we want Black men to be proactive about their prostate health.
Now's the time to Talk That Talk with our doctors about prostate cancer screening.
TALK YOUR TALK ABOUT SCREENING
Did you know that prostate cancer (PC) is the second-leading cause of cancer death for Black men? If we want to change the situation, it's important to have honest conversations and proactive prostate cancer screenings. And each of us has a part to play.
The reality is that prostate cancer is taking our fathers, brothers, uncles, and friends from us before their time.
We can make a difference now and for generations to come — if we Talk That Talk and stay on top of our prostate health.
The sooner we detect PC by screening, the better our chances to address it.
I THINK WE, AS MEN, NEED TO GET OUT OF OUR HEADS. WE NEED TO GET OUT OF OUR OWN WAY. YOU KNOW, SO MANY MEN ARE DYING BECAUSE THEY'RE WAITING UNTIL THE 11TH HOUR TO GET A CHECKUP, OR THEY'VE GOT SOME OTHER TELLTALE SIGN THAT THEY IGNORE.

WHAT THE STATS SAY
When we invest in our health, we all win. We may not be able to change our risk of prostate cancer (PC), but we can be proactive by talking with our doctors and getting screened early. That's why talking your talk matters.
PROSTATE CANCER SCREENINGS — WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The first step in screening for prostate cancer (PC) is a conversation with your doctor.
And the second step might not be as complicated as you think.
Your doctor might begin by recommending a simple blood test, called the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. The test measures the amount of PSA in the blood, and the level of PSA helps to indicate the health of the prostate.
You might've heard about the other kinds of PC screenings, so we want to break down what to expect and details to look out for. With a conversation, we can start protecting our prostate health.
