King Charles’s recent prostate treatment appears to be encouraging more Australian men with enlarged prostate symptoms to consult their GP.

“There’s been a definite increase, and not just in patient inquiry and patient concern about prostate pathology but in objective metrics like Google searches,” Professor Damien Bolton, vice-president of the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, says.
