September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Here are the facts: 

  • 1 in 6 Australian men will be diagnosed in their lifetime. 
  • 75% of Australians still don’t know the PSA test guidelines. 
  • Only 36% of prostate cancers are detected at the earliest stage, when we know we can effectively treat the disease. 

The good news is, the actions we take as a health care community can help ensure early diagnosis and long-term survival. 

Visit the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia website for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month resources to share with your practice, patients and your communities and for more information.
