While racial differences in the incidence and mortality of prostate cancer are well known, differences in the clinical and pathologic features between black and white men with similarly staged disease have been poorly studied. Our results suggest that serum PSA levels are higher in black men, but no other differences were noted. This suggests that early detection programs for prostate cancer in black men can potentially decrease prostate cancer mortality.
