A guide to the various treatments available to those with prostrate cancer.
Each year nearly 35,000 men are diagnosed and more than 10,000 die from prostate cancer, and figures are rising. It is number three in the causes of early death from cancer after breast cancer in women and lung cancer in both sexes. The good news is that better awareness, earlier diagnosis and more sophisticated treatments can save lives, and have already reduced death rates in some countries - eg, in America, death rates have fallen by 10% due to better education, despite incidence having risen. This new edition of Coping Successfully with Prostate Cancer describes the many treatments available and presents the latest research.
