Note Editore

An Insider's Perspective of Prostate Cancer: Understanding Effects, Management Options and Consequences provides scientifically based information on the management and treatment of prostate cancer. The text is designed to be neither prescriptive nor proscriptive, providing succinct, yet comprehensive details in 'bite size chunks' for ready assimilation and application. Sections cover recent approaches the prostate cancer landscape has made by providing background statistical and anatomical information that is followed by relevant genetic, immunological and background data. The book then proceeds to explain the mechanisms involved with cancer development and the spread and metastases that can occur in a minority of those diagnosed.

In addition to acknowledging the importance of psychological effects of diagnosis and management interventions, the undervalued benefits of exercise are also emphasized, including information on holistic management. This comprehensive approach makes this a perfect reference for up-to-date information on all aspects of prostate cancer and its management.

  • Provides succinct, yet comprehensive coverage on the management and treatment of prostate cancer and subsequent consequences for patients
  • Reviews how prostate cancers change and how treatments can adapt
  • Delivers guidance on how to assess information with ranking in terms of levels of evidence, thus enabling the evaluation of critical reports and claims made in relation to prostate cancer and other conditions
