Prostate cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths, affecting nearly 35,000 men each year. But, better awareness, earlier diagnosis and increasingly sophisticated treatments can save lives. This thoroughly updated edition presents the latest thinking and research on prostate cancer and disease. It examines the possible influence of diet, geography and viral factors, as well as the vexed question of screening, including PSA, and whether to treat or not. Other topics include the latest treatments, including surgery, radiation therapy, brachytherapy and laser; lifestyle factors; and dealing with advanced cancer.
