Prostate cancer is unusual among solid tumors in that the majority of affected men die with, rather than of, the disease. This presents many challenges to healthcare professionals and patients in terms of deciding if, when and how to intervene in order to control tumor growth and spread, thereby extending survival but without compromising quality of life.
This is the ninth edition of Fast Facts: Prostate Cancer since 1996, testament to the rapid changes in the field and the steadily improving outlook for patients. This new edition provides many key updates:
Primarily intended for primary care providers, specialist nurses, junior doctors and allied healthcare professionals, this highly readable resource provides a comprehensive overview of prostate cancer, enabling fully informed discussions with patients about this complex disease.
“If you are a clinician and you’re going to read only one easy-to-read book about prostate cancer, make it this one. Then lend it to those patients who wish to know more.”
Inderbir S. Gill, Associate Dean (Clinical Innovation), Keck School of Medicine,
University of Southern California, USA
“Fast Facts [Prostate Cancer, 9th edn] does what it says on the cover and does it very well. The book provides short yet detailed coverage of the key aspects of prostate cancer, making it easy to pick up for a quick refresh. As a medical student new to Urology, I plan to use this as a reference tool during prostate MDT’s.”
Jack Bowyer, medical student at King’s College London
