"No other book on the topic explains alternative treatments to prostatectomy, the more common option for those diagnosed with prostate cancer: and no other describes the tests, stages, statistics and long-term options as this title. The result is excellent coverage." -- BOOKWATCH

Prostate Cancer: A Survivor's Guide describes the radioactive seed implant therapy for prostrate cancer for which there is a 91% success rate. This is a critically important book because there is anew case of prostate cancer diagnosed every two and a half minutes, with 200,000 new cases expected this year! Yet many urologists are not telling their patients about all the available treatment options. Men need to be better informed about available therapies so that they may make better decisions about their health in general, and their prostate cancer in particular. Prostate Cancer makes this kind of information more accessible, more understandable, because it proceeds from the patient's point of view when confronted with life-threatening choices. Don Kaltenbach was originally advised to undergo a radical prostatecotmy. Instead, because he became aware of radioactive seed implant therapy he opted for this treatment -- and it worked, saving him from both the cancer and the effects of prostatectomy. -- Midwest Book Review
