Prostate Cancer Testing: Should I get tested?

Did you know that Prostate Cancer is Australia’s most common male cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death? Today, more men will die from prostate cancer than women will of breast cancer. The solution however is as simple as a visit to Australia’s only dedicated prostate cancer testing clinic based in Brisbane – Prostate Screen Queensland.

To reduce your risk, Prostate Screen Australia advocates men from the ages of 40 and 70 having access to prostate cancer testing.

At 40, there is increasing evidence to support men having a ‘baseline’ test including a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test and physical examination. This baseline prostate cancer test enables the doctors at Prostate Screen Australia to assess your future testing requirements; whether it be in 1 year, 2 years or 5 years.

At 50 onwards, Prostate Screen Australia advocates men having a PSA blood test and physical examination annually.

In conjunction with these tests, the specially trained doctors at Prostate Screen Australia individually calculate your risk of prostate cancer using internationally validated computer software resulting in the a more accurate prediction of your prostate cancer risk.
