The objective of the present study is to capture the prostate cancer screening intention, knowledge levels, attitudes, and reasons for participation in screening among African American men. African American men aged from 35 to 65 in Georgia, North Carolina, and Ohio were recruited for study (N = 168). Questionnaires were administered using validated instruments. Findings suggest critical needs for community-based social workers to communicate the importance of prostate cancer screening and risk factors among African American men. Increasing the use of culturally relevant community health education might benefit underserved minority men at risk of having prostate cancer.
