THE BESTSELLING BOOK ON PROSTATE CANCER IS NOW EVEN BETTER:
Completely revised and 100 pages bigger!

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 mycancer 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.
