The two most common cancers in men are of the skin and prostate. If you're male and over 50, statistically you have a 50% chance of getting clinically significant prostate cancer at some point in your life.
Contrary to the statistics, prostate cancer is often preventable. And it's curable in most men. But awareness is key. Prostate Cancer--Prevention and Cure tells you all you need to know about preventing, controlling, and curing this disease.
The author, Dr. Lee Nelson, is a prostate cancer survivor. He has successfully navigated the maze of treatment choices, side effects, and meaningful lifestyle changes that can significantly affect outcome and quality of life. His pursuit of wellness led him to study thousands of articles, interview dozens of experts, and draw some eye-opening conclusions about how to prevail in the battle against prostate cancer.
Prostate Cancer--Prevention and Cure is the definitive book on the second most common cancer for men.

I was most impressed with Nelson's treatise on what has become a major problem for many men as they age, and in many cases, take little interest in their personal health until their prostate problems have reached an advanced state. He divides the subject into 3 main parts - What is Prostate Cancer; Treatments; and New & Future Developments. Each section is dealt with in easy-to-follow language, even though technical descriptions are used. I felt quite comfortable reading the material, taking notes so that if and when I need to consult a specialist, I have an informed view of what questions I need to ask and a clearer picture of the terms likely to be used in the consultation process. The 'Treatment' section in particular was most...
This is a splendid reference manual for newly diagnosed or survivors of PCa. The author is a thirteen year survivor with a serious medical background and the text is easily understood and very well put together. Highly recommended.
