Here is the Good News!

There is now a blood test that can detect over 50 types of cancer, and it is vitally important that people of all ethnic groups, age 50 -77, volunteer for the trial so that the NHS can decide if the test could work well for everyone. Because cancer is easier to treat if it is found early, our participation in this trial is vitally important as this will afford us and our children, one of the best opportunities to survive cancer for years to come.

Here is an ITV Central News report about it.  https://playvideo.bulletinintelligence.com/133dd7ac8d1e4c9c9bad96ac0bafd899?pubid=grail

The Not so Good News!

Unfortunately, for various reasons, the Black Caribbean and Asian communities have a very low number of participants in the trial. 

  • We know that 1 in 4 black men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer;
  • Non-hormonal triple-negative breast cancer is more likely in younger Black African, Black African Caribbean and some Asian women.
  • Bowel cancer is increasing in the Black UK population, and furthermore,
  • There is a backlog of cancer detection caused by the pandemic. Hence we are seeing many of our people presenting with cancers are at more advanced stages.
