Publisher Description

Do You Have Prostate Cancer? is the ideal book for any man who has had an abnormal prostate test (PSA, digital rectal exam, or other lab test). This 132-page book provides the most up-to-date information about additional tests, prostate biopsies, and prostate health. Most importantly, Do You Have Prostate Cancer? is easy-to-read. (If you can read the sports section of your local newspaper, you will be able to understand all the concepts we discuss in this book.)

Whether readers have a GRE or a Ph.D, this book provides the tools they need to make smart healthcare choices. The Interactive exercises, flow charts, tables, and other colorful graphics make the medical information even easier to understand.

Well-informed patients make better choices, which is why this book was written to be a doctor’s office companion: It anticipates the conversations you would have with your doctor(s) in 2 to 4 office visits.

Written by a doctor-patient team, Do You Have Prostate Cancer? provides a unique perspective on prostate health from the forefront of prostate cancer treatment and research.

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, we recommend you read Prostate Cancer: A New Approach to Treatment and Healing.
