Have You Been Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer?
If so, you join the 200,000 other men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually in the United States. Another 5 million men are living with the disease. The good news is that prostate cancer when detected early is very curable. And even when it is not curable, it can still be treated, giving a man many more years of life.
Authors Arthur Centeno, M.D., and Gary Onik, M.D., are specialists in prostate health and prostate cancer, and understand the anxiety that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis. They have treated thousands of patients, and understand your concerns and the questions you have about treatment. In Prostate Cancer A Patient’s Guide to Treatment, they answer such questions as:
How is prostate cancer diagnosed?
What are the surgical treatment options?
What is nerve-sparing surgery?
What is involved with radiation therapy?
What is the newer cryoablation (freezing) treatment?
Do all treatments result in impotence?
When is chemotherapy recommended?
What is hormonal therapy?
