A serious computer game aimed at raising awareness of prostate cancer (lat. Carcinoma) among black African-Caribbean men - and prompting those at higher risk of the disease to seek medical advice as soon as possible has been developed by the researchers at Nottingham Trent University. Experts, who are creating the prototype, want to address the disease’s high mortality rates among this ethnic group and the various barriers which prevent them from seeking early advice and treatment. More than 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK every year - and one in four black men will develop the disease at some point in their lives. Unawareness of their prostate cancer risk and symptoms and fear of tests and treatments for the disease are some of the challenges they face.
