The University of Queensland School of Medicine Ipswich Campus is hosting the Ipswich Prostate Cancer Support Group Awareness Evening tonight.

Held in the UQ Ipswich Auditorium, the evening is open to the general public and all health professionals.

Head of the School of Medicine MBBS Ipswich Program Professor Geoff Mitchell is supporting this event and said prostate cancer was common in older men.

“The treatment is very effective, but sometimes there are distressing side effects,” Professor Mitchell said.

“There are also effective treatments for these too and this evening will provide people with information from two experts in the field.”

Dr HS Teng, Urological Surgeon will be speaking on the subject of ‘prostate cancer – diagnosis – treatments’ while Dr Michael Gillman, GP Specialising in Erectile Dysfunction, will be looking at the subject of ‘Erectile dysfunction after prostate cancer treatments’.

The Ipswich Prostate Cancer Support Group wishes to encourage its member in the Scenic Rim, Somerset and Lockyer Valley Regional Areas to attend this awareness evening to show their support for this initiative.

Light Refreshments will be provided and all are welcome to attend.
