In Australia, 1 in 11 men get diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. This straightforward guide provides an indispensable road map to treatment and recovery. Two terrific authors - a veteran health journalist and a top urologic oncologist and surgeon - helps patients and their families choose the right doctor, make the best treatment choices, and deal with common fears.
Offering friendly, unintimidating explanations of the latest medical information, they go over treatment options - surgery, radiation, chemotherapy - and tell how to minimise treatment risks, cope with side effects, and get the right follow-up care.
The book also offers a complete rundown on prostate cancer prevention, screening, and detection for men who are concerned about developing the disease.
