Epworth and Icon are collaborating to lead the way in prostate cancer patient-centred care with a new precision target-based treatment - Focal Brachytherapy.
Join the experts as they educate prostate cancer patients on this new treatment option which uses MRI to identify prostate cancer, and targeted radiotherapy to treat only the tumour, instead of the whole prostate, to keep side effects to a bare minimum.
Australian behavioural scientist and chief executive of Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, Professor Jeff Dunn AO, has been voted President-Elect of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
MatesCONNECT is a phone-based peer support service for men affected by prostate cancer in Western Australia.
If you’ve recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, our MatesCONNECT service can connect you to a trained volunteer who understands what you’re going through. All of our volunteers have been through prostate cancer.
You can get practical advice on surgery and treatment, and the side effects of treatment, such as incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and coping with Androgen Deprivation Therapy.
The service is accessible wherever you live in WA. Simply call us on 1800 22 00 99.
We’ll take your details and find a volunteer who suits your situation. While our volunteers can’t give you medical advice, they can provide you with an understanding of what to expect and give you an insight into living with prostate cancer.
