What happens to the thousands of men who will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer every year. For most men it will mean coping with a disease about which they know very little, if anything.
This clear, practical guide, written by a man who has himself had the disease, takes the reader and explains the signs of Prostate Cancer, what to look for and the symptoms which can give an early warning of the disease. It talks about the treatments available and the likely effects of those treatments from the patients point of view.
It explains the medical jargon, describes what the prostate does and what is prostate cancer. It explores the effects of the disease on the family and friends of the patient and describes some of the hopeful new developments in the treatment of Prostate Cancer and asks why male cancer treatment continues to be the poor relation in public health spending.
