Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is a time dedicated to public education regarding the most common cancer in men. Statistically comparable with breast cancer, it is of vital importance to increase our collective understanding about a disease that, when detected early, is over 90 per cent treatable. In 2015, an estimated 24,000 Canadian men were diagnosed, and this number is expected to double by 2030 due an aging population.


According to Prostate Cancer Canada, prostate cancer can be slow-growing and some men who develop prostate cancer may live many years without ever having the cancer detected, so it is important to get screened regularly so that if you do develop prostate cancer, the appropriate action can be taken.
While any man can develop prostate cancer, men at highest risk are:
Over 50: Age is the strongest risk factor for prostate cancer. Your risk increases starting at age 50, and most cases are diagnosed in men over age 65. Prostate Cancer Canada recommends that men in their 40s get a PSA test to establish their baseline. If you think you are at increased risk, talk to your doctor before age 40.
Have a family history of prostate cancer: Your risk is higher if a first-degree relative (father or brother) has had prostate cancer. Your risk increases with each additional first-degree relative who has the disease.
African or Caribbean: Prostate cancer is more common among men in these ethnic groups. (Men of Asian descent have lower risk.)
Overweight: Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight reduces your risk.
Do not have a healthy diet: Men who eat a low-fibre, high-fat diet are more likely to develop prostate cancer. Saturated fats may increase testosterone production and promote the growth of prostate cancer cells.

Prostate Cancer Study from Australia

One in three men have concerns about their sexual health (e.g. erectile dysfunction) after

prostate cancer treatment. Many men are reluctant to get help for their sexual concerns, and

when they do, often men do not continue with treatment.

To date there is little research to help us understand men’s concerns about their sexual

health after prostate cancer and how they prefer to address these concerns. Our online Men

and Sexual Health – Prostate Cancer study will explore men’s concerns about their sexual

health, what contributes to their decisions to seek support, and from whom they prefer to

receive this support. This is an international study which is supported by cancer control

organisations, health professionals, and universities in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and

Ireland.

The Men and Sexual Health - Prostate Cancer study is an online survey that will take

approximately 30 to 40 minutes of your time. The survey asks about your sexual concerns,

side effects after prostate cancer treatment, quality of life, decisions to use services, and the

services that you prefer.

If you are aged over 18 years, have had treatment for Prostate Cancer and would like to

share your experience and help other men affected by prostate cancer please type in the

following URL into your web browser. www.menandprostatecancer.org

In addition to this, in the survey we will ask your permission to contact you again to complete

another survey in 6 months and 12 months so that we can understand if you’re sexual

concerns and need for support services change over time.

Please note: If you are receiving this info from your local PCCN support group in Canada

please note that this is not a Prostate Cancer Canada led study. Prostate Cancer Canada

is not responsible for any personal or contact information you may provide to the study, nor

the results of the study.
