Abstract: In spite of the vast amount of research into prostate cancer, sexual orientation is not a piece of information that is routinely collected in cancer registries, nor is it usually asked of men who participated in prostate cancer research studies, which means there is a lack of clarity about the experiences of gay and bisexual men with prostate cancer and uncertainty about their information needs relating to this health issue. In redressing this situation, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) commissioned the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), at La Trobe University, to conduct two studies. ... This report is one of the few research-based documents on prostate cancer that places gay and bisexual men as its prime focus. We trust you will read with interest, and join with PCFA in its endeavour to reduce the impact of prostate cancer on Australian gay and bisexual men, their partners, families and friends through research, awareness and support.
