Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men. It will affect 1 in 6 men in their lifetime. Early detection is the best method of beating this disease. When detected early, there is a greater than 95% chance of 5-year survival. However, if it is detected late, this drops to less than a 25% chance.

For example, having a family history of prostate cancer can double your chance of developing this disease.Learn more
