Dr. Patrick Walsh's Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer
Janet Farrar Worthington, Patrick C. Walsh
0446679143
August 1, 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Walsh, professor of urology at Johns Hopkins University, and Worthington, a medical writer, offer a thorough guide to one of the most frightening diseases for men. Starting with an explanation of how the prostrate works surprisingly, it's not an essential organ Walsh then discusses why prostate cancer is prevalent in the U.S. and other developed Western countries, but not in Asia. He also detail the reasons men develop prostate cancer, including age, race, family history and diet. The book describes a variety of symptoms, some of which indicate ailments other than cancer, and what steps should be taken to get a proper diagnosis. Complete with diagrams and charts detailing the results of biopsy, the book provides an exceptionally complete (albeit worrisome, for squeamish readers) overview of the disease. Many of...


Dr. Peter Scardino's Prostate Book: The Complete Guide to Overcoming Prostate Cancer, Prostatitis, and BPH
Peter T. Scardino
1583332200
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Many men have a dreaded fear of prostate problems that prevents them from seeking help. In response to that approach, Scardino, a practicing urologist at Manhattan's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, quotes Joe Torre regarding his own experience with prostate cancer: "When you get the information, the fear just sort of melts away." This book should diminish many fears with its straightforward, three-part presentation. Part One introduces the normal prostate and its function. Part Two presents common prostate problems that more than half of all men will face: prostatitis and an enlarged prostate. Part Three, the most comprehensive section, presents all that's presently known about prostate cancer (prostate tumors account for one-third of all internal cancers diagnosed in men). In simple, concise prose,...

Prostate Health in 90 Days
Larry Clapp
1561704601
January 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This audio offers hope and practical suggestions for men who seek an alternative to the surgical treatment of prostate cancer. Clapp, a practicing attorney and coauthor of Awaken the Healer Within, was himself diagnosed with the disease and developed a regimen of diet, meditation, and other lifestyle changes that eradicated the cancer from his body. Narrator Tom Plant manages to hold the listener's interest, though the second half is tough going in this regard, becoming a series of lists of good and bad foods and other mundane action steps toward health. One is left with the impression that, in this case at least, a print copy that could be referred to regularly while trying out the author's methods would be much more practical than an audiobook one must replay in order to revisit the vital information contained in...

From Library Journal
"Every three minutes, a new case of prostate cancer is diagnosed in the United States. Every 15 minutes, a man dies from it." Thus, the message of this book that "most prostate trouble can be prevented?and, if caught early enough, all prostate problems can be cured, even cancer"?is good news indeed. State-of-the-art medical knowledge is provided by Johns Hopkins Urologist-in-Chief Walsh, clearly written by science writer Worthington, and informatively illustrated by Leon Schlossberg. The authors acknowledge that "medical care in this country is uneven," so their goal is "for you to come away from this book informed, prepared and able to discuss your situation intelligently with your doctor." This comprehensive reference on the prostate and its disorders complements?and surpasses?Sylvan Meyer and Seymour C. Nash's...
