In Australia, 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer which solely affects men – and it claims around 3500 lives in Australia each year. But the good news is, treatment has changed dramatically in recent years, enabling men with prostate cancer to live long and active lives.

Early screening and detection of prostate cancer is so important as there are often no symptoms of the disease.

Once men hit 50, they should be getting a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test every two years, and they should start even sooner if they have a family history of the disease.

Our teams of prostate cancer experts at Mater help men through every step of their fight against this disease. From diagnosis, through to management and treatment. They include:

  • Psychologist
  • Radiologist
  • Radiation oncologist
  • Erectile dysfunction specialist
  • Pathologist
  • Pharmacist
  • Urologist
  • Oncologist
  • Physiotherapist
  • Urology nurse

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is the perfect time to see your GP, request a test and check-in for a check-up.
