This book saved my father's life 17. Januar 2013
Von Farm Mom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
My father was diagnosed with what appeared to be a very small amount of cancer. We weighed the evidence, read everything we could in this book and elsewhere on what he should do, and one of the things that struck us was Dr. Walsh's detailed discussion about the nature of prostate cancer. Especially, he had a lot of evidence that cancers that seem to be not that bad are actually worse when the pathologist looks at them, and he also talked about how the biopsy, even multiple biopsies, can still miss the full extent of cancer. This is what happened with my dad. My father had surgery, and his cancer turned out to be Gleason 7. His surgeon, who performed the operation that Dr. Walsh invented, got all the cancer, and every PSA test for the last several years has been undetectable. He had no long-term side effects, and no incontinence even at the beginning. The information on ways to prevent cancer is being practiced by my brother and husband. There is a lot of good information on family history, too, which we have, on both sides of the family. I found this to be a very caring, positive, and helpful book, and I give it to friends who are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Unfortunately, there are a lot of men out there with prostate cancer, and the need for good advice is greater than ever. I would advise people looking at these reviews to use a grain of salt when reading one that seems particularly snarky. Yes, there is repetition in the book, but the authors say up front that this is because they don't expect people to read it cover to cover, but to go to the sections they need the most. I am grateful that we did not need the sections on advanced cancer, but found that to be hopeful, as well.

Surviving Prostate cancer 2. Februar 2013
Von Russ Billo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1999. I wish I had read this book then.I have gone through several forms of treatment in the last four years. I find my doctors very uninformative about side effects and long term prognosis.This book answered all of my questions in a clear and understandable way. To me it's better to have a full understanding of a problem than to sugar coat things. I have an appointment coming up and I will reread parts of Dr Walsh's book to be able to ask better questions.This book is a must for anyone with prostate cancer.

Walsh 15. Dezember 2012
Von jeepdoctor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Writes from a surgeon's perspective. A man with PCa who reads this book should also find a good book by a radiation oncologist or oncologist specializing in prostate cancer. Radical prostatectomy is not the only answer. It just happens to be the most used therapy because urologists are surgeons and surgery is where the big money is. Before selecting surgery, be sure you know the quality of life implications of this decision. Also, take time to evaluate the treatment failure rates of radical prostatectomies, EBRT/IMRT and bracytherapy. Find the Business Week article which discusses the research done by the Intel founder before he made his decision on which treatment to pursue.

Must read book - for all men - but especially if you have been diagnosed 20. Juli 2013
Von Jay - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you need to know about prostate cancer - this is the place to start. Authoritative, reasonably easy to read and very comprehensive. The writing style is excellent, and pitched at an ideal level for the general public. It is neither dumbed down nor research-paper-complicated. I'm disappointed there is not more information about emerging technologies such HIFU, but I guess this is not available in the US yet. Overall - I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Essential reading after diagnosis to help you understand the disease and your options.

Well worth reading before diagnosis to get your head around the issue in case it happens.

*** Why oh why is this not available in digital edition ***

I would be delighted to pay full dead-tree price for it - if I could just GET it.

Many authoritative cancer sites recommend this book, but we live in rural Australia. This is not available in any book store within 350km of us and it's not in the library. I know I can buy it online and get it delivered, but that will take at least 7-10 days and when you've just had a cancer diagnosis - you want information NOW - not in 10 days time. This is 2013 and the internet and digital media has been around for quite a while now.

We should have prepared for this and read about it years ago, but like most people we didn't. Most men will find themselves here one day. For all those in the future who are diagnosed, please release it in digital.
