August is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in Australia.
Did you know that prostate cancer is the most common men’s cancer in Australia? With a whopping 230,000 Aussie men currently impacted, a further 45 men diagnosed a day and 9 deaths a day from prostate cancer! Also, if your father or brother have ever been diagnosed with prostate cancer, your risk of prostate cancer DOUBLES!
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is a broadly-based community organisation and the peak national body for prostate cancer in Australia. They are dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners and their families.
