Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Australian men.

  • The occurrence of prostate cancer is the highest among men between the ages of 35 and 69.

What's the risk?

The chance of developing prostate cancer increases with age. 

  • 1 in 7 men will get prostate cancer by the time they are 75 years old and 1 in 5 by the time they are 85 years old.

A family history of prostate cancer may increase the chance of someone developing prostate cancer. This risk increases if more than one male relative has prostate cancer and/or if a male relative was diagnosed when they were young.

A risk to retirement and pre-retirement income generation

  • One in four men stopped working as a result of their prostate cancer diagnosis and out of those who retired, most had done so 4 to 5 years earlier than they had planned as a result of their diagnosis.
