Over the month of September challenge yourself to go the distance. Walk, run or wheel 72 km and help raise money to find a cure for a disease that takes approximately 3,500 Australian men a year. It is the most commonly diagnosed cancer for men.
Men over age 50, or 40 with a family history of prostate cancer, should talk to their doctor about testing for prostate cancer using the PSA test and DRE as part of their annual health check-up.
Men should make an individual informed decision about testing based on the latest available evidence on the benefits and potential harms of testing and subsequent treatment for prostate cancer.
Please encourage the men in your life to get tested.
