Abstract

Prostate cancer is now the most common cancer diagnosed in men in Australia,1 and Australia has one of the highest incidence rates of prostate cancer in the world, with an estimated age-standardised rate of 119.2 per 100 000 men.2 Before 1960, the primary diagnostic test for prostate cancer was the prostatic acid phosphatase test. This was eventually replaced in the 1980s by the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test.
