Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in Australian men after non-melanoma skin cancer. In fact, more Australian men die of prostate cancer each year than women do of breast cancer. Fortunately, advances in cancer detection and PSA blood testing have led to a lower incidence of aggressive tumours. PSA testing is still the best tool for early detection and curative treatment of an aggressive prostate.
Listen to MyHealthTest General Manager, Dr Nick Cerneaz talk with Ed Phillips from Talking Lifestyle about prostate health, the importance of PSA testing and a new, easy method to stay across it all.
“If you test for it, knowledge is power and it allows you to manage the condition, so in a way, you really ought to be tested so you can take control of that and live a healthier longer life”
– Dr Nick Cerneaz, General Manager of MyHealthTest
