An African American Man's Perspective: Prostate Cancer Survival
- By The National Cancer Institute
- September 17th, 2012
Dealing with a cancer diagnosis can be lonely. Two African American men talk about their experiences coping with and surviving prostate cancer. Their message to other African American men who may find themselves facing prostate cancer is to "man up" and learn as much as they can about the disease and discuss options with their doctor. The men both talk about how they were encouraged by the support of family and friends and how they dealt with fear and uncertainty in a positive way. This video is part of the National Cancer Institute's Lifelines education and awareness series designed for multicultural communities.
