165136 - Men's Health Update

  • : Online


A evening workshop on men's health discussing prostate cancer and urinary incontinence in men.

Relevance to General Practice

The International Continence Society defines urinary incontinence as involuntary leakage of urine that has been diagnosed objectively and is associated with additional hygienic and social problems. 13% of men in the general Australian population suffer from some form of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence becomes more prevalent with age with an estimate 1 in 4 over the age of 70 suffering from the condition. Only 31% of men suffering from urinary incontinence are suspected of seeking medical assistance. Most urinary incontinence can be evaluated and treated in the primary care setting after careful history and simple clinical assessment. If there is complex symptomatology or primary management fails, then referral to a specialist is suggested. 85% of all prostate cancer incidences occur in men over the age of 65. Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer related deaths. Prostate cancer is also responsible for 12.5% of all cancer related deaths in men in 2018.
