Use this app to assess your risk of prostate cancer

Black African Caribbean and African men (with West African heritage) are at increased risk of developing prostate cancer at an earlier age. We are in a barber's shop, where Vincent, Enus, Patty Dumplin and Carl discuss prostate cancer.

BMECC's paticipation in the Charity Walk for Peace event in Miiton Keynes Sunday 30th June 2019 was well rewarded.  The cheque for £615 was presented to Rose Thompson (CE) and Lindsay Thompson (COO) by Dr Irfan Malik, Regional President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association, West Midlands.

Research has shown that prostate cancer is three times more likely in black men and nationally prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, accounting for 26% of all male cancer diagnoses in the UK. Nottingham is a diverse city, with approximately 35% of the population comprising of BME groups.
