Prostate Cancer: A New Approach to Treatment and Healing gives readers new access to leading-edge medical information about prostate cancer, by making it simple and easy-to-understand. This colorful, hands-on, user-friendly book provides the kind of information you would hope to receive after seeing several prostate cancer specialists who practice different kinds of medicine. Essentially, this is a picture book for adults, written in everyday English, with lots of state-of-the-art information to support all the images, flow charts, tables, and diagrams. Each chapter has a patient story, doctor story, and interactive Toolbox section. Prostate Cancer: A New Approach to Treatment and Healing also contains a Spouses Section (because no one goes through a prostate cancer diagnosis alone) and a Digging Deeper section for readers in search of more in-depth information.
“This is one reference that prostate cancer patients and their loved ones should keep handy. You will refer to it time and again from the initial diagnosis, to understanding your treatment options, to living as a cancer survivor.” ~ Dr. Lee McNeely, MD, Medical Director, Anova Cancer Care, Lone Tree, Colorado
