Abstract:

An unbiased and up-to-date look at prostate cancer treatments and therapies, resolving the problem of contradictory and incomplete information. Dr. Chodak outlines the pros and cons of all reasonable treatment options, recognizing that men and their families need more than just the facts; they are concerned not only with their survival but also what life will be like after treatment. This book offers empathetic insight into the impact of the disease on day-to-day activities so that patients and family members have a clear understanding of what lies ahead and options that are available should complications arise. The book does not gloss over the controversies but presents them in a clear, concise, and easy-to-understand manner.
