about

This book is the fourth edition of the book on prostate cancer in the Intelligent Patient Guide series. Cancer patients who take an active part in making decisions about their treatment are better able to deal with their illness than patients who relegate control to their doctors. The book provides information on all aspects of prostate cancer and equips patients with the knowledge needed to take an active part in their treatment. Topics include what is cancer, the symptoms to watch for, information about the prostate gland, reducing the risk of prostate cancer, the PSA test and other diagnostic techniques, making the decision about treatment, when to seek a second opinion, what happens when patients have surgery or radiation, hormone therapy and its role in treating prostate cancer, the side effects of all treatments, urinary control and sexual function, how to handle the emotional side of the condition, where to turn for help, and alternative and complementary therapies.

He is a Professor of Urology at the University of British Columbia, co-director of the Vancouver Prostate Centre, Chairman of the UBC Department of Urologic Sciences...
