Description - The Prostate Cancer Treatment Book by Peter Grimm

Now, 21 top prostate cancer experts from around the US have combined their expertise to answer the questions that their patients ask them when they have to decide on a treatment. All the options are covered, including surgery, hormonal treatment, "watchful waiting", external beam radiation, and perhaps most important, radioactive seed implantation (brachytherapy), a topic that is newly emerging and is given short shrift in other books. The lead authors are from the Seattle Prostate Institute, a pioneering group in this therapy. Contributors are from some of the top cancer institutions in the US, including experts from the Mayo Clinic, Cornell University and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, and other prestigious medical centres around the country. Together they address the concerns they hear from their patients and offer them state-of-the-art treatment information. The book features true stories of men who've made different treatment choices.
