THE BESTSELLING BOOK ON PROSTATE CANCER

Now available as an eBook and on Kindle!
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.
