EVERY MAN NEEDS THIS BOOK! Each year, more than 200,000 American men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. The good news is that more men are being cured of this disease than ever before.

Now in a revised third edition, this bestselling and lifesaving guide by renowned expert Dr. Patrick Walsh and award-winning science writer Janet Farrar Worthington offers a message of hope to every man facing this illness. Prostate cancer is a different disease in every man—which means that the right treatment varies for each man. Giving you a second opinion from the world's top experts in surgery, pathology, urology, and radiation and medical oncology, this book helps you determine the best plan for you. Learn: • The latest information on what causes prostate cancer—your risk factors, including heredity, diet, and environment • Which simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can help prevent or delay the disease • Why the digital rectal exam and PSA test can save your life—and when to get these tests • The most recent treatment options: from Dr. Walsh's "nerve-sparing" radical prostatectomy to new radiation techniques, robotic procedures, and new drugs that are revolutionizing treatment of advanced cancer • The most effective methods for maintaining continence and potency after treatment.
