Prostate cancer knows no boundaries and does not discriminate – it’s for this reason the Parkes Prostate Cancer Awareness and Support Group is raising as much awareness as it can and pushing for men to get checked.
Prostate cancer is one of the highest causes of death among men.
But the group’s chairperson Michael Lynch said it doesn’t have to be.
“It is imperative that all men are aware of the possibilities of an enlarged or cancerous prostate,” he said.
“Men are inclined to bury their heads in the sand in the hope that it will not affect them.
“When statistics tell us that more than 25,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 3500 men will die from it in Australia this year, caution may be life-saving.”
