    Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland is backing a campaign to raise awareness of prostate cancer amongst the black community in Leeds. With July each year being Ethnic Minority Cancer Awareness Month, new figures revealed last week show the local impact of the condition in Leeds.

    New data reveal that 58 black men in Leeds are living with prostate cancer, and that 68% of them were diagnosed in the later stages (defined as stages III and IV) of the disease (versus 43% across England in white men). More still needs to be done to understand the full impact of prostate cancer in this population as only 89% of prostate cancer cases diagnosed in Leeds recorded a person's ethnic background.
