Prostate cancer is a fast-changing field, and recent advances have significantly improved both the survival and quality of life of many men diagnosed with the disease. As well as providing comprehensive information on the diagnosis, staging and management of the disease, the eighth edition of this ever-popular handbook is an invaluable update on new developments, including: • Evidence for the debate surrounding PSA screening • A better understanding of molecular and genetic advances • The latest methods of delivering radiotherapy • New drug treatments for castrate-resistant prostate cancer • Important discussion of survivorship issues This superbly illustrated handbook is a practical resource for all those who provide support and care for men with prostate cancer – including GPs, nurses and allied health professionals – as well as a refreshingly readable source of information for patients wanting to know more about their condition and its treatment.
"This is an excellent resource. It provides a thorough and up to date review of prostate cancer and its management, at all stages of the patient pathway. A very useful, contemporary reference for practitioners working in prostate cancer care."
Catherine Holborn, Senior Lecturer in Radiotherapy & Oncology, Course Leader for the MSc Prostate Cancer Care, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
"A valuable quick reference for medical students, general practitioners and medical oncologists, as well as urologists ... especially well suited for medical students who are interested in the field of urology as well as those urologists or oncologists still in training, as it provides a solid framework for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer ... This can be an excellent resource for those interested in a rapid but useful reference on prostate cancer."
