Frequently Asked Questions

If a blood relative of yours, especially your father or brother, has suffered from prostate cancer, then you have a higher chance of developing the disease.

You should get checked regularly even if you have not noticed any symptoms.

Otherwise, rates of prostate cancer increase with age.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men and is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in men.

More than 3,300 Australian men die of prostate cancer every year. That is more than the number of women who die from breast cancer annually.

Nearly 10% of men in Australia will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Cancers that start in your prostate can, like all other cancers, spread to other parts of the body. However, many prostate cancers develop slowly and, if caught in time, can be effectively removed.

That said, around 3,000 men die from prostate cancer every year.

The important thing is to be aware of the symptoms and seek treatment as soon as you recognise any changes in your body.
