An illuminating guide for those newly diagnosed with prostate cancer as well as their partners and caregivers—one filled with extensive details about diagnosis, treatments, and tips for thriving.

The second leading cause of cancer death for men, prostate cancer affects more than a quarter of a million individuals in the United States each year. Most men with prostate cancer will go through the journey from diagnosis through treatment and beyond with a partner and family members by their side. But there are few resources available that address the needs of both those with cancer and their loved ones who want to help.

Written in accessible language and backed by the latest scientific research, Prostate Cancer covers
• symptoms, diagnosis, and testing;
• the full range of treatment options available;
• practical tools partners can use to assist their loved one;
• advice on managing the side effects of treatment, including incontinence and sexual problems;
• tips to help cope with the emotional challenges associated with cancer;
• recommendations for keeping healthy with diet, exercise, and mindfulness; and
• insights into insurance issues.

With three leading experts in urology, surgery, and psychiatry as its coauthors, Prostate Cancer provides the information and guidance you need to better understand the disease, communicate with health care providers, and support yourself and your loved one through treatment and survivorship.

Reviews

My career of 40 years has revolved around prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. I wish this book would have been available for my practice to bridge and fill the gap between the patients and significant others. I now recommend this to all of my patients with prostate cancer.

This book is a unique treatise encompassing a breadth of issues that the individual faces upon a diagnosis of prostate cancer in a loved one. It is a 'must read' so that a partner will not feel alone and uninformed along the journey.

I have had the opportunity during fifty years of caring for thousands of men with prostate cancer and making every effort to communicate with their partners to help them through the process of diagnosis and treatment of their loved one's disease. I believe this book will help current partners who have so many questions that need to be answered so that they can be supportive caregivers. This book will be a tremendous help to patients and their partners.
