Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer develops when cells in the prostate gland grow in an uncontrolled way and form a malignant tumour [44124]. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, but it is less common among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men than non-Indigenous men [31288].

Prostate cancer has a high survival rate [44124] and outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can be supported through equitable, multidisciplinary, culturally safe and patient-centred health care [39506][28182].
