Also in this issue, PCFA's scientific writer, Wendy Winnall, reports Dr Melissa Hyde's study of Australian men's unmet needs in prostate cancer, and how they access information (78% doctor's resources, 53% internet, 8% support group, 4.5% cancer helplines, and 2.1% counselling services).


PCFA CEO, Anthony Lowe, has an article on what patient expectations are for their treatment.


Finally, a great looking pair of Steel Blue boots (non-safety) for $99 (with $10 going to PCFA).
