Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer affects cells of the prostate, the male organ that sits next to the urinary bladder and contributes to the production of semen [24363]. 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 [24363][31288]. The 5-year survival rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men who have prostate cancer is high, but considerably lower than the rate for non-Indigenous men [24363][31288].
