Overview

If you're concerned about prostate cancer, this practical handbook is for you. Filled with helpful information and written with compassionate insight, Prostate Cancer: A Cleveland Clinic Guide dispels the myths and mis-conceptions about prostate cancer and encourages patients to take charge of their health and work with their doctors to defeat this disease.

Author Eric A. Klein, M.D., an internationally known authority on prostate cancer, is Director of the Center for Urologic Oncology at Cleveland Clinic Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute. He is also on staff at Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, which was named by U.S. News & World Report one of the top 15 cancer centers in the nation and the No. 1 cancer center in Ohio.

In Prostate Cancer: A Cleveland Clinic Guide, Dr. Klein presents the story of Dave, an inquisitive and likable fellow who learns about living a healthier lifestyle as he undergoes treatment for prostate cancer. Follow Dave as he gains knowledge about the disease - who gets it, how it is found, and how it can be prevented. You will also read about promising new therapies, cutting-edge medications being tested in clinical trials, and foods that may help lower the risk of prostate cancer.

"Prostate cancer is exceedingly treatable," writes Dr. Klein, emphasizing that the best way to get more information is to talk with your doctor. "He or she will advise you about the disease and, more important, answer questions as they apply to you or to a loved one who is undergoing treatment."
