Prostate Cancer Awareness Month 2018

Saturday, 1 September 2018 (All day) to Monday, 1 October 2018 (All day)

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in Australia with almost 20,000 diagnoses and close to 3,500 deaths each year.

We encourage all men over 50 – or over 40 if you have a family history - to talk with your GP about your prostate health. Prostate cancer testing can be a complex subject, that’s why we recommend that you talk with your GP about what is best for you.

What You Can Do To Help Spread The Word

We are utilising social media channels this September to encourage men to have a health check and talk to their doctor about prostate cancer. If you or people you know are active on social media this is an easy way to take part.

Version 1: share your personal experience (for men aged 50 up or 40 up with a family history)

Prostate cancer hits about 1 in 7 Aussie men. I've booked my GP appointment – this September PCFA urges you over 50s to book one too #GetChecked #PCFA

Version 2: Help Spread the Word

Prostate cancer is real. Around 1 in 7 Aussie men get it. In September PCFA urges men over 50 (or 40 if it's in the family) to book a GP appointment #GetChecked #PCFA
