How Does Research Help?

Medical research is vital as it helps build our knowledge and understanding of prostate cancer. With better understanding of any disease, researchers can then turn their attention to improving detection and diagnosis of the disease as well as provide better, more targeted prostate cancer treatments and patient care. In turn it is hoped that through advancements made in medical research we can eventually prevent or eradicate the disease.

While significant progress has been made over the years, we still have much to learn about prostate cancer, like how and why it occurs. These questions are at the core of the work being done by Australian Prostate Cancer researchers.

With your ongoing support we will continue to progress our vital research into prostate cancer and our fight to reduce the impact of this disease on Australian men and their families now and into the future.
