PROSTATE CANCER 20/20: A Practical Guide to Understanding Management Options for Patients and Their Families

Paper Back Book

Released in January 2019.


PROSTATE CANCER 20/20 is a streamlined and accessible guide to understanding prostate cancer and its management options. The pros and cons of each option are reviewed in detail in order to empower the newly-diagnosed patient and enable him to choose the treatment that best suits him.

The book reviews the unprecedented number of advances in prostate cancer that have been made over the last few years. These include refinements in screening and diagnostic testing, sophisticated new imaging techniques, the development and application of genetic testing, the availability of numerous new medications, continued technical progress in surgical, radiation and focal therapies and the blossoming of the era of “active surveillance.”

Because most patients with prostate cancer have an excellent prognosis, the long-term consequences of the disease are oftentimes the side effects of treatment.   PROSTATE CANCER 20/20 provides in-depth information on the most common complications following treatment—sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence—conditions that can be successfully managed through a variety of means detailed within the book.
