Each year nearly 35,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Of these, more than 10,000 die from the disease, and figures are rising. But better awareness, earlier diagnosis and more sophisticated treatments can save lives, and have already reduced death rates in some countries. This new edition of Coping Successfully with Prostate Cancer presents the latest research on prostate cancer and describes the many treatments available. Topics include; symptoms and stages of the disease, other prostate problems, the possible influence of diet, geography and viral factors, screening and investigation, including PSA, the decision to treat, or not to treat, treatments, including surgery and radiation therapy, branchytherapy and laser, dealing with advanced prostate cancer, lifestyle measures, coping with sex, research and the future. In this thoroughly updated and positive book, Dr Tom Smith says that it is possible for men with prostate cancer to lead successful, happy and fufilled lives.
