I’m grateful that he has now made available his hands-on experience to everyone in this easy-to-read, practical book that provides such good sense in an arena of medical decision making that too often is dominated by hype and fear.”

“The prostate, a small and enigmatic organ near the bladder in all male mammals, appears to be disproportionately afflicted by a bewildering collection of conditions as men age. This book captures the wisdom of Dr. H. Ballentine Carter, the most thoughtful urologist in the world today and a renowned expert on the detection, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of prostate diseases. Writing with Gerald Couzens, a seasoned medical author, the prostate health information delivered is not only definitive but remarkably accessible—with myth busters, red flags, and takeaways provided to guide as well as inform men confronting prostate diseases. The book is certain to become required reading for men of all ages, and for their loved ones, as they seek to live longer, healthier, and happier lives.”
—William G. Nelson, MD, PhD, Director, Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Johns Hopkins Hospital
“This comprehensive resource will be for men what Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book is for women. Highly recommended.”

You owe it to yourself and your family to understand this. Ignore the mumbo jumbo diet/supplements books. They are useless and delay in real diagnosis and treatment is not your friend.
Going through a diagnosis of prostate cancer is terrifying; it makes you feel hopeless and without any control over the circumstances of your disease. This book empowers you to take hold of your life and DO something that can fight the disease or prevent it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
