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.

The factual history of the author's discovery of his prostate cancer and his uphill quest for accurate and clear medcial answers based on the lastest science mirrors my own situation to a large degree. I am fortunate that my uroligist is open to discussing all alternative treatment options and urges patience in reaching a decison. I highly recommend this book for those men who have just learned that their life has taken a turn into the world of prostate cancer. You'll want to study your options after reading this book.
I am a retired quality control supervisor for one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies. One of my favorite volunteer activities is tutoring English as a Second Language through the Cape Cod Literacy Council. There are only three engineers whom I have read who can write clear, concise, easy-to-understand English and Bob Marckini is one of them. So, if you want to know anything about how to deal with prostate cancer, then I recommend reading YOU CAN BEAT PROSTATE CANCER. It has become my personal "bible" on the subject since I have been diagnosed with this disease.
