Summary, Etc. "More than 200,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually in the United States. Another 5 million men are living with the disease. The good news is that prostate cancer, when detected early, is very curable. And even when it is not curable, it can still be treated, giving a man many more years of life. Author Arthur Centeno, MD, is a specialist in prostate health and prostate cancer, who understands the anxiety that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis. In this comprehensive guide, he answers such questions as: How is prostate cancer diagnosed? What are the surgical treatment options? What is nerve-sparing surgery? What is involved with radiation therapy? What are the advantages to immunotherapy and targeted therapies? Do all treatments result in impotence? When is chemotherapy recommended? What is hormonal therapy?" -- Provided by publisher.
