September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) has chosen the theme 'Together for the long run' for this year’s campaign.
Over their lifetime, 1 in 6 Australian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. 75% of Australians don’t know the PSA test guidelines and alarmingly, only 36% of prostate cancers are detected at the earliest stage, when they can be effectively treated.
To help USANZ Members promote Prostate Cancer Awareness Month to their patients and communities the PCFA has a series of posters available for download.
Members are also encouraged to take part in The Long Run awareness event. For more information visit The Long Run website, email The Long Run, or call them on 1800 22 00 99.
