    schema:description "This book provides a single, comprehensive reference source that incorporates all the latest information regarding prostate cancer. It serves as an easy reference source for researchers, clinicians, individuals in training, allied health professionals and medical students regarding prostate cancer by focusing on the controversial points of debate. New data regarding PSA screening, prostate cancer biomarkers, diagnostic evaluation techniques, surveillance protocols, and treatment interventions for localized and more advanced disease are discussed, and gaps in current knowledge and areas for future research are highlighted. Ongoing important clinical trials are also discussed. This text is organized around defined clinical scenarios which are encountered routinely by physicians who care for patients with prostate cancer. The case based format permits presentation of information of concise practical significance. The chapters run the gamut from screening controversies, utility of biomarkers, surveillance strategies, and innovative treatment. The text incorporates key educational concepts in the framework of patient situations with evidence-based discussions of screening, diagnosis, evaluation, and therapeutic management. It also features a comment section from leaders in the field that will be more "opinion-based" allowing the reader to get access to experienced physicians' thought processes and practice patterns. Prostate Cancer: Clinical Case Scenarios will quickly become the ready reference source for professionals and students in various fields with an interest in the management of a complex and multifaceted disease such as prostate cancer."@en ;
