Now updated and revised, the definitive book on surviving prostate cancer from the world's leading authority on the prostate. Each year, more than 230,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 30-40% of patients who are diagnosed will eventually relapse. But the good news is that more men are being cured of this disease than ever before. Now in a revised fourth edition, this lifesaving guide by Dr. Patrick Walsh and award-winning science writer Janet Farrar Worthington offers a message of hope to every man facing this illness. Prostate cancer is a different disease in every man--which means that the right treatment varies for each person. Public awareness for this disease has transformed treatment and opened up new avenues of research; rapid advances in knowledge are being translated in new recommendations for management. In this book, Dr. Walsh will address questions such as: What causes prostate cancer? Your risk factors, including heredity, diet, and environment. Can I prevent prostate cancer? How some simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can help prevent or delay the disease. Does prostate cancer need to be treated at all? This hot-button issue is vital for men to understand. How do I know if I have prostate cancer? An explanation of the recently refined and expanded recommendations. How can my prostate cancer be treated? The pros and cons of new technologies and new information on focal therapy.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men today, closely following lung cancer. About one man in six will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. But only one in 35 will die from it. More than two million men in the United States who have been diagnosed at some point are still alive today. I am one of them. My book, Cancer is a Four-Letter Word: A Pilgrimage into the Emotional, Sexual, and Spiritual Aspects of Prostate Cancer, chronicles my own experience with this terrible disease. From early diagnosis, fear, and panic, to shopping for the best treatment, to surgery and subsequent recovery, I trace not only the physical journey of getting my stamina and good health back, but also the psychological and sexual implications. My format includes an interweaving of my own story of prostate cancer with other men's stories, along with open-ended questions at the end of each chapter to keep men and their partners talking late into the night. Theres also a resource list to provide support for a lifetime. Although concise and easy to read, my book doesnt hold back any personal details. Readers will learn what to expect in regard to diapering oneself post-surgery, working through debilitating depression, and forging the uncharted territory of a different kind of sexual intimacy. More importantly, theyll hear about learning to accept support from loving friends and how to talk to God in a whole new way. Rarely does a reader find an account of experiencing Gods overwhelming love and grace in the same chapter as explicit details on how to give oneself penile injections to overcome erectile dysfunction!

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.
