Processing Prostate Cancer with Mical Roy

Mical Roy speaks about surviving prostate cancer after diagnosis at age 37, three years earlier than the age most doctors say you should get tested.

A new study has found, that for African American men, the risk of dying from low-grade prostate cancer is double that of men of other races. In this episode we talk about the importance of sharing health histories especially along family lines and how advocating for earlier testing could allow more men the chance to remove the cancer with non-invasive surgeries before it takes over.
