Urologist Chodak offers this accessible summary of the latest research into prostate cancer management, intended to help patients be better informed about a disease with relatively low medical consensus on best practices. A primer on anatomy, diagnosis, severity assessment, and types of medical studies precedes the overview of different treatment strategies for localized, advanced, metastatic, and castration-resistant prostate cancers. The pros and cons of different types of surgery, radiotherapy, brachytherapy, chemotherapy, and androgen deprivation are covered. The end of the book discusses the option of enrolling in a research study, and gives advice on how to approach alternative medicine, Internet information, support groups, and the ultimate possibility of hospice care.
