Hampton has the highest incidence of prostate cancer in the state. In Virginia, it occurred in 141.5 white men per 100,000 and 235.7 black men per 100,000 between 2000 and 2004, according to the state health department. The prostate cancer death rate was twice as high for black men as it was for white men between 1999 and 2006, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
