Synopses & Reviews
With greater public awareness, early detection of prostate cancer is on the rise and mortality rates are declining, and this book emphasizes that all patients should be well-informed decision makers in planning their own treatment. Covering everything from risk factors to living well after treatment, this pocket-sized reference provides critical questions to ask your health care team, is updated with the latest patient treatment guidelines, and includes an advanced dictionary of cancer-related terms.
"The major issues are covered here authoritatively and comprehensively for both patients and their loved ones. The ACS has achieved its goal of providing overviews that tackle need-to-know issues and supply references for additional follow-up information as desired. Recommended." Library Journal
