    THE BESTSELLING BOOK ON PROSTATE CANCER IS NOW EVEN BETTER:
    Second Edition, 2007

    surviving prostate cancer

    With this book, you will learn answers to these and other important questions:

    • Why do I need to have a baseline PSA at age 40? I thought it was age 50!
    • If there is no magic PSA cutoff point, how can my cancer be diagnosed?
    • If I have cancer, how do I know where I stand (the 2007 Partin Tables), and what are my treatment options?
    • What is the most up-to-date information on surgery and radiation therapy?
    • Have there been any breakthrough treatments in the management of advanced disease?

    Comprehensive, reassuring, and full of hope.
