Surviving Prostate Cancer Without Surgery: The New Gold Standard Treatment that Can Save Your Life and Lifestyle

Front Cover
If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you owe it to yourself to become informed about the disease and to know all your treatment options. The good news is there has been great medical progress in recent years and prostate cancer is now a highly treatable disease. For most patients who are diagnosed early, the choice of treatment most often comes down to radiation versus radical surgery, either with or without some form of hormonal therapy. This book provides the latest medical data and explains why more men are now avoiding surgery and instead choosing state-of-the-art radiation therapy such as seed implants and IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy).
