9781573920742: Prostate Cancer

"My story," says Richard Handy, "is about the most personal experience a man can share: how to heal the emotional effects of prostate cancer's threat to his life and of its cure's devastating consequence for his sense of maleness."

An estimated 200,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1994, yet this "ignored male disease" has only recently become a topic of polite conversation. It is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer for men and the second most frequent cause of cancer-related death. Medical research continues to make progress in diagnosis and treatment, but little is available to help patients and their families face the emotional effects of the cure. Handy shares his most personal story and its profound influence on his self-image and on his relationships with others. Written by a vulnerable person facing impotence and possible death, Prostate Cancer is for all the men, and their caring partners, who must confront the disease and impotence. Handy seeks to provide the understanding that he struggled so long to find during his own healing journey. The epilogue will strike a chord with all who are working through recovery.
