Publisher’s Description: 


The third edition of the book on prostate cancer in the Intelligent Patient Guide series, a series of comprehensive, illustrated, self-help books for cancer patients and their families. Patients who take an active part in making decisions about their treatment are better able to deal with their illness than are patients who relegate control to their doctors.

This book provides information on all aspects of prostate cancer and equips patients with the knowledge needed to take an active part in their treatment.

Topics included in this book: what prostate cancer is, reducing the risk of prostate cancer, detection, treatments, surgery, alternative therapies, and physical and psychological impact.

The book also contains addresses and phone numbers of cancer treatment centres and support groups in Canada and the United States and Canadian information on prostate cancer on the internet.

Dr. Goldenberg, a graduate of the University of Toronto Medical School, is a professor at the University of British Columbia, the director of the Prostate Centre at Vancouver General Hospital, and a consultant at the British Columbia Cancer Agency.

Dr. Thompson received his medical training at Tulane University, has served as Chairman of Urology and of Surgery at Brooke Army Medical Center, and is now a member of the faculty at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center.
