The Cancer Chronicles:
Prostate Cancer

If cancer hasn’t already impacted your life, chances are it will in the future. Whether it hits a friend, family member, or even your own body, it is a devastating and sincerely frightening endeavour for a family and community. The emotional, psychological and physical tolls a cancer diagnosis takes is beyond calculation.

This is why I have released this series of booklets, The Cancer Chronicles, and continue to add to it. I want to do my share to put an end to all of the agony caused by this horrific disease. To take a passive role in the fight against cancer would be, for me as a health care professional, entirely unethical.

Don’t think it’s important to think about prostate cancer? Well…

  • Each year in Australia, close to 3,300 men die of prostate cancer—equal to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually.
  • Around 20,000 new cases are diagnosed in Australia every year.
  • Each day about 32 men learn news that they have prostate cancer – tragically one man every three hours will lose his battle against this insidious disease
  • One in 9 men in Australia will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men and is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in men
  • As many men die from prostate cancer as women die from breast cancer but… a national survey by PCFA in 2002 showed that while 78% of women felt well informed about breast cancer – only 52% of men felt informed about prostate cancer.
