September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is asking Australia to get involved and help create awareness and raise the much-needed funds to help in the fight against prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in Australia with almost 20,000 diagnoses and close to 3,500 deaths each year.
We encourage all men over 50 – or over 40 if you have a family history – to talk with your GP about your prostate health.
Prostate cancer testing can be a complex subject, that’s why we recommend that you talk with your GP about what is best for you.
Prostate cancer is real. Around 1 in 7 Aussie men get it.
In September PCFA urges men over 50 (or 40 if it’s in the family) to book a GP appointment.
