If you've been diagnosed with a prostate disorder, you're probably confused by the array of treatment choices - including no treatment at all - and frightened at the prospect of the two common side effects of such treatment: impotence and incontinence. Prostate Disease combines the most up-to-date research and frank discussion to help you make the best choices for your individual situation and work more effectively with your health-care team. Topics include: making the right choice: surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, "watchful waiting," and more; the latest research on secondary hormonal therapy, cryosurgery, cell-killing chemotherapy, growth-factor inhibitors, immunotherapy, and other advancing treatments; how to evaluate alternative therapies; and coping with impotence and incontinence.This essential guide will take you step-by-step through diagnosis, causes, treatment options, and methods of coping for all major prostate disorders, with perspectives from leading doctors, nurses, therapists, dietitians, social workers, and men who are living with each treatment choice.
