WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROSTATE CANCER

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in males with about 1 in 5 men diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer will kill 1 out of 5 of those diagnosed. This equates to over 3,000 men dying from prostate cancer each year in Australia. 

Prostate cancer is cancer that begins in tissues of the prostate gland. Located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum, the prostate is the male sex gland responsible for the production of semen and also plays a role in urination control. The growth of abnormal cells can multiply in an uncontrolled way and spread outside the prostate into nearby or distant cells. Many men avoid check ups through fear, embarrassment or worries about loss of manhood, although a simple check-up is the best preventative measure you can take.
