Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book addresses the very timely issues of prostate cancer screening, diagnosis, and management of biopsy findings suspicious but short of a diagnosis of prostate cancer. . This is a timely and outstanding review of complex and controversial issues pertaining to prostate cancer diagnosis. It is a terrific resource for clinicians, public health specialists, and lay people interested in obtaining a thorough understanding of these critical issues that affect so many men." (Mark Hurwitz, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
