Title: Navigating Prostate Disease: Managing Symptomatic Patients
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men. General Practitioners (GPs) have an essential role in the diagnosis, coordination of treatment, and providing ongoing care of patients who develop prostate cancer. Prostate-related conditions can present with various urological symptoms, and understanding how to approach them is crucial for timely and accurate diagnosis. There are several common symptoms for both early and advanced stages of the cancer.
At this webinar, Dr Stephen McCombie will provide an overview of prostate disease to assist GPs in managing symptomatic patients. The topics covered will include common urological symptoms associated with prostate diseases, interpretation of abnormal PSA levels, managing hematospermia, and the nuances of PSA ordering.
On the morning of Tuesday October 10 an email will be sent to registered attendees which will contain a link to join the webinar. You will be able to join the webinar by clicking the link.
