“Cancer of the Prostate is the commonest cancer in the world…[It] is even a bigger problem here for us in Jamaica as we have the highest incidence of this disease recorded in the world… cancer of the prostate in Jamaica has an incidence of 304 per 100,000… At age 55 in Ja. 60% of men will have a prostatic cancer and this becomes more common with increasing age… Most cancers of the prostate are not aggressive so that more men will die with it instead of from it, however due to its prevalence it remains the second most common cancer killer in Jamaica…Early curable cancer of the prostate has no symptoms and the man feels entirely normal!”
