President Michael Sata’s wife Christine Kaseba has urged men in Zambia regardless of their age or status to get screened for prostate cancer.
Dr. Kaseba said prostate cancer was the most common killer disease among African men although the figures were much lower globally.
She said this was why President Michael Sata was keen to step up th…e fight against prostate cancer in the country.
Kaseba said although the number of men that were suffering from prostate cancer was not as high as those for women with cervical cancer, it was significant enough to warrant attention.
She was speaking at a daily briefing at Choma District Hospital during the ongoing mobile health outreach programme in the area.
Dr. Kaseba said it was important that men be screened for prostate cancer before the disease become cancerous.
