A CANADIAN AUTHORED AND PUBLISHED BOOK ON PROSTATE CANCER FOR CANADIANS.

This is the fourth edition of the book on prostate cancer in the Intelligent Patient Guide series. Authored by three Canadian experts, this book is an invaluable resource for Canadian men suffering from prostate cancer. It enables them and their families to understand their disease and be proactive in their treatment, which in turn leads to better health outcomes. 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 covered in the book 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.<_o3a_p>
