I got into the research mode after a recent considerable increase in my PSA velocity on a test 10 months after the previous one. At the moment, I am awaiting a re-test to see if I will be relegated to the confusing, contradictory, scary world of the prostate cancer patient. I ordered and read three books here on Amazon. This one, "The Decision," which is an interesting perspective from a urological surgeon who himself had to deal with his own prostate cancer at the age of 52, and Dr. Katz's "The Definitive Guide to Prostate Cancer."
If you were to purchase only one of the books, my recommendation would be the Walsh book. Dr. Walsh is a rockstar in the world of urological surgery and was the physician who developed the nerve sparing open radical prostatectomy that bears his name. He is associated with arguably the premier prostate cancer care facility in the world - Johns Hopkins. The Walsh book is pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about prostate cancer clearly and completely explained by a man who has done thousands of prostate cancer procedures.
If who would like some interesting other perspective however, I also highly recommend "The Decision" with its unique perspective of a man both a cancer patient and urologist. I would also highly recommend Dr. Katz's book. He is highly involved with the Holistic approach to prostate cancer at Columbia University. Based on the recommendations of Dr. Katz, I ordered Zyflmend as a supplement (available here on Amazon). The procedure that Dr. Katz uses is Cyrosurgery which from my perspective has a rather limited potential patient base.
Bottom line, I would buy all three is you are not budget or reading constrained.
After an in depth lay persons Urological introduction, Dr. Katz describes treatment options in a simple and clear manner that is not only complete and thouroughly informative but interesting, entertaining and even humorous!
The book is loaded with health tips of every kind including nutrition, exercise, relaxation techniques, life style and much more. He suggests delicios foods and spices like tumeric, ginger,Asian mushrooms and more.
You come out of the book with knowledge of your positive options. It takes you out the darkness of fear and ignorance. You get a sense of the cutting edge break throughs that give you hope and optimism.
It is remarkable that this subject can be delivered in such an edifying, entertaining, funny and enjoyable way. This book is like a ray of light! I would recommend to anybody, sick or not.
It lessens the anxiety provoking fear that men might have about this subject.
Cancer is a scary subject. The good news is that prostate cancer is usually slow growing. Which means you have lots of opportunity to improve your body's own immunity and cancer fighting ability.
If you or someone you know is dealing with prostate cancer, or prostate and urinary issues in general, this book is a good place to start.
