About this item

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men with almost 200, 000 new cases being diagnosed each year. Today increasing numbers of men and their families play a more active role in their treatment and the results can be seen in the increase of men who survive prostate cancer. Yet each year over 27,000 men die from prostate cancer. This makes prostate cancer the second leading 'cause of cancer death in men behind lung cancer.

The range of controversial therapies and treatments for prostate cancer is greater than that of any other cancer affecting men. This makes it difficult for men and their families to determine what are the best options available. Rarely do doctors agree on which treatment a patient should receive or when they should receive it. And many of the current books on prostate cancer suffer from considerable bias promoting one treatment over another without good scientific evidence.

"Winning the Battle Against Prostate Cancer" resolves the problem of contradictory and incomplete information. The book is an unbiased and up-to-date look at prostate cancer treatments and therapies. Dr. Chodak lays out the pros and cons of all reasonable treatment options including the chances that a man may have a good result or develop side effects or complications. Equally important Dr. Chodak recognizes that men and their families need more than just the facts.

They are concerned not only with their survival but also what life will be like after treatment. "Winning the Battle Against Prostate Cancer" offers empathetic insight into the impact of the disease on day-to-day activities so that patients and family members have a clear understanding of what lies ahead and what options are available should complications arise. The book does not gloss over the controversies but presents them in a clear, concise, easy-to-understand manner.
