Overview

The complete guide to coping with prostate cancer, with expert health advice for every man

This comprehensive handbook gives men the vital information they need to effectively navigate every

step of dealing with prostate cancer. A newly diagnosed cancer patient faces a mind-numbing array of treatment options, including medical therapies that carry serious side effects—and determining the right course of action is an overwhelming task. In simple yet scientific terms, this book empowers readers with the tools they need to proactively fight cancer by making the most informed treatment decisions possible.

 

With groundbreaking developments recently emerging in both conventional and holistic prostate cancer research, it is imperative that men fighting this disease have the absolute latest information. As

founder and director of the Center for Holistic Urology at Columbia University, Dr. Katz is uniquely positioned to guide readers through the new practices and breakthrough treatment options for every stage of the battle with cancer, from prevention to postdiagnosis.

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and countless families will be

affected by this widespread but ultimately curable disease. Armed with Dr. Katz’s expert guidance, patients will be equipped to actively participate in reclaiming their health and navigating this difficult diagnosis.

    Reccommended

    This is an important book for any man diagnosed with prostate cancer. Dr. Katz provides some important information that is not found in other books. He describes new advances in cryotherapy, which make that form of treatment worth considering. He presents a very interesting case for how diet and life style changes can benefit prostate cancer patients. His holistic active surveillance program is important to consider.

    Read all of the books and articles that you can find. Don't panic. Take time to decide the best course of action. Good Luck!

    Recommended reading for people with and without prostate cancer

    Dr Katz hits it home with his knowledge of what prostate cancer is, how to reach a decision as to what kind of treatment to pursue by laying it all out there.
    He brings understanding to an uncomfortable subject for men who would otherwise have no interest in the subject until it is too late.
    The vast array of preventive methods and different types of treatment one can pursue by being made to understand what has been diagnosed for him are invaluable.
    This is a book for both sufferers and non-sufferers of prostate cancer.
    It is educational, informative and worth every minute of your time to read and feel better about yourself.
