Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers: An Essential Guide to Managing Prostate Cancer for Patients and Their Families Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Radical prostatectomy is still the most widely recommended treatment for prostate cancer. Yet, according to a recent study, only one out of every forty-eight men who undergo this debilitating procedure survives longer than those who forgo surgery. Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers reports the latest thinking on prostate cancer management in clear, easy-to-understand prose. In a unique collaboration, a patient and his doctor provide a new perspective on living with this disease. Ralph Blum’s surprisingly entertaining twenty-year journey and eventual decision to treat his cancer as a “chronic condition,” together with Dr. Mark Scholz’s presentation of the newest scientific evidence, will liberate thousands of newly diagnosed men to pursue a noninvasive approach and thereby preserve normal sexual and urinary function.

About the Author

Ralph Blum, a cultural anthropologist and author, has written for various magazines including The New Yorker, Reader’s Digest, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue. Blum has published three novels and five nonfiction books on the oracular tradition, beginning with The Book of Runes.

Mark Scholz, MD, has been treating men with prostate cancer exclusively since 1995. He is board certified in medical oncology and internal medicine and is the medical director of Prostate Oncology Specialists, Inc. He is also the executive director of the Prostate Cancer Research Institute
