This colorful, interactive, user-friendly book provides the wealth of information you would hope to receive after seeing several prostate cancer specialists. "Prostate Cancer" gives readers a new way to access leading-edge medical information. Essentially, it is a picture book for adults — with a lot of exceptional information to support all the flow charts, graphs, tables, diagrams, photos, and other graphics.
"Prostate Cancer" takes a 360-degree approach to helping men find the right treatment for them, their condition, and their lifestyle concerns. Each chapter begins with a "Patient Story" and ends with a "Doctor Story" that emphasize the information being discussed. The "Toolbox" sections at the end of each chapter give readers new ways to interact with their medical information, ask difficult questions, and cope with their emotions. The "Digging Deeper" section at the end of the book provides in-depth information for readers who want to know more, and the "Spouses Section" shares stories from women who have been through prostate cancer with their husbands.
Also, this book was written in everyday English. It presents state-of-the-art scientific information in an easy-to-follow format, without medical jargon or “doctor speak.” (If you can read the sports page, you can read and understand "Prostate Cancer.")
