An Insider's Perspective of Prostate Cancer: Understanding Effects, Management Options and Consequences
The Society would like to highlight a new publication to Members: An Insider’s Perspective of Prostate Cancer: Understanding Effects, Management Options, and Consequences, written by Prof Robert Alexander (‘Frank') Gardiner.
The book provides scientifically based information on the management and treatment of prostate cancer. The text provides succinct, yet comprehensive details in ‘bite size chunks’ for ready assimilation and application. Sections cover recent approaches the prostate cancer landscape has made, by providing background statistical and anatomical information that is followed by relevant genetic, immunological, and background data. The book then proceeds to explain the mechanisms involved with cancer development and the spread and metastases that can occur in a minority of those diagnosed.
In addition to acknowledging the importance of the psychological effects of diagnosis and management interventions, the undervalued benefits of exercise are also emphasized, including information on holistic management. This comprehensive approach makes this an ideal reference for up-to-date information on all aspects of prostate cancer and its management.
An Insider’s Perspective of Prostate Cancer: Understanding Effects, Management Options, and Consequences is available for purchase from Amazon.com (ISBN-13: 978-0443187094 ISBN-10: 0443187096).
