About this title


Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer (excluding skin cancer) among American men. In 1998 approximately 184,500 new cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed in the United States. However, if detected early, it is also among the most treatable forms of cancer, and due to advances in diagnosis and treatment, survival rates continue to rise. The five-year survival rate has increased from 50 percent in the period from 1960 to 1963 to 89 percent today.
        But most men--and their families--lack the most basic information about what to do when confronted with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. This book, written by internationally respected medical experts, sets out to explain everything a man needs to know. Written, updated, and revised under the auspices of the American Cancer Society, the nation's leader in cancer research, education, and rehabilitation, it contains the most up-to-date information about the disease. Even more, it is a patient's advocacy book, offering medical, practical, psychological, social, and emotional support. Through case histories and anecdotes--and always with compassion--it addresses the full range of issues that men with the disease may face.

From the Back Cover:

"This book gives straightforward medical information about
prostate cancer and its treatment. It also presents the steps you need to take in making some tough choices and directs you to valuable resources for more information." --Jim Mullen, founder, Man to Man

"The big fight against prostate cancer begins with education, which is why this is such an important book. Most men and their families need support as well as up-to-date, clearly presented information about prostate cancer to help them understand and cope with the disease, and this book offers both. I applaud the American Cancer Society for writing it."
--George Foreman

"Early detection saved my life."--Jerry Lewis
