Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with 21,808 new diagnoses in 2009
Health-care expenditure on prostate cancer was estimated to increase 23% between 2004–05 and 2008–09, to $349 million
The age-standardised mortality rate decreased from 34 deaths per 100,000 males in 1982 to 31 per 100,000 in 2011
