"Prostate cancer is the second biggest cancer killer of men in Australia, and Australia is a world leader in its diagnosis and treatment. If you’re unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, you can at least be thankful you’re living in this country", writes Jeremy Grummet in the 12 September Medical Journal of Australia.

Jeremy outlines the many ways in which research into diagnosis, surveillance and treatment is undertaken in Australia, then implemented by medical practitioners. He attributes this to "Australia’s relatively small population size, political stability and high standard of living [which] all contribute to us being agile innovators – overused buzzwords indeed, but very true in the field of prostate cancer."
