A Crash Course on Prostate Cancer: From One Woman's Perspective


A Crash Course on Prostate Cancer: From One Woman's Perspective Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sometimes a woman just needs to hear certain things from another woman. And one of those times is when your husband may have prostate cancer.

When author Lynne Rosenberg, a registered nurse and wife of a medical doctor, began to research this disease after her husband Mark was diagnosed, she found very little useful information about the day-to-day decisions and difficulties they would face. Scrambling to decipher test results, procedures, medications, and side effects, she discovered that each woman faces this process as if facing uncharted territory.

Prostate cancer involves the physical and mental mechanisms that in some ways define both masculinity and intimacy, and Rosenberg confronts these subjects with refreshing frankness. After devoting more than a year to her husband's illness, treatment, and recovery, she has organized her experience into a readable and rational discussion that can help prepare women to deal with everything for which she herself had no preparation.

While not intended to replace the doctor, nurse, or counselor in the management of this disease, A Crash Course on Prostate Cancer: From One Woman's Perspective will provide you with the support that only another woman can give.
