Which cancer kills more people? Is it prostate cancer or breast cancer?

Posted: 14/3/2018

So, I learned something today.

Every year in Australia prostate cancer claims more lives than breast cancer. That's right, more men die of prostate cancer than women die of breast cancer.

Prostate cancer killed more than 3,400 of us blokes last year in Australia. Admittedly, it was only a few hundred ahead of breast cancer but a win is a win, right? Obviously, in this case, bigger is definitely not better.

So, what can we do about it?

Well, the good news is that your chances of surviving prostate cancer are significantly increased with early detection and treatment.

The bad news is that the disease can be quite advanced before you even notice any symptoms. 

But wait... here's some more good news. Some doctors recommend a blood test first. Now I can't guarantee you won't need a rectal examination but, if your bloods are good and you have no other symptoms. you may not need one.

So, no excuses. If you're over 50 go and see your doctor. And if you are over 40 and have a family history of prostate cancer, go and see your doctor.
