There are 3 broad factors which increase your risk that you can understand yourself to understand yourself:
1) Age: being over 50 if you're white or 45 if you're of black or ethnic minority
2) Family history: haveing another male family member who has had prostate cancer
3) Ethnicity: black or blended ethnicity men have greater risk of prostate cancer
