Overview

The task of choosing the right prostate cancer treatment is daunting. It is further complicated by conflicting information the patient receives from physicians and the Internet. This book is written by a prostate cancer survivor who now runs an international prostate cancer support group. It's about his journey and the important things he learned along the way. It is the book the author wishes had been available when he was diagnosed 6 years ago. It is intended to provide specific information for men who are at risk or have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. All major treatment options are examined and the pros and cons of each are summarized. A relatively new, non-invasive, highly effective treatment is highlighted. It is an option that cures cancer as well as any other option, but generally leaves the patient with a higher quality of life and fewer, if any, side effects. This book has been endorsed by several physicians as well as other highly respected people from all walks of life.

    Terrific! Should be read by every man over 40.

    Well written. Easy read. Discusses the options and the potential side effects of each optional treatment. Describe the author's experience as he makes a choice and undergoes treatment.

    Informative

    I was researching Prostrate Cancer treatments and ran across Proton Therapy. I read this book after a recommendation from a friend. It was great, informative and helped me choose Proton Therapy for my treatment. Well worth reading and is refreshing to have a book written from the patients perspective.

    The BEST book on prostate cancer for the layman

    If you are a guy facing prostate cancer or a lady concerned about the guys in your life, this is the book for you.

    About one man in six will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (about the same rate as breast cancer in women). The rate goes to one in three if there is a family history.

    The good news is that prostate cancer is very treatable if diagnosed early. However, a big problem is the number of competing treatment options. While most of the treatment options have similar survival rates, they can vary dramatically in the incidence and extent of short and long term side effects as well as quality of life.

    In this book, Marckini writes about his research into all the treatment options and his decision to choose proton beam therapy and his great experience.

    When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer fibe years ago, this book was a great help as I weighed my treatment options, eventially choosing proton beam therapy.

    I had a great experience, no side effects, a low PSA and enjoy a high quality of life.

    If you or someone you care about is facing prostate cancer, this very readable book will help you better understand your options.
