Prostate & Cancer
A Family Guide to Diagnosis, Treatment & SurvivalBook - 2003
Prostate cancer has become the most-diagnosed cancer in America and the second leading killer of men. Sadly, more than 189,000 men will be diagnosed with the disease in 2002. Dr. Sheldon Marks, a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, is the authority that many have come to depend on-both in his practice and through his book, Prostate and Cancer-when cancer has posed a threat. Now completely updated and revised to reflect the latest research in drug therapies and treatments, traditional surgical techniques, "minimally invasive" techniques, and methods to combat impotence and incontinence, Prostate and Cancer is more essential than ever. Dr. Marks has been praised for his user-friendly question-and-answer format and his ability to cover everything from who is at risk and what is involved in an evaluation to options for treatment. Indeed, Prostate and Cancer is the definitive source of information on prostate cancer today and has long been recognized as such by the recommendations of readers and urologists alike.
