Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK and US and the second most common worldwide. The ABC of Prostate Cancer provides fully illustrated guidance on the treatment and management of prostate cancer. It covers the biology, anatomy, and pathology of prostate cancer, screening, and active surveillance and monitoring. It presents an assessment of treatment options including prostatectomy, bracytherapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy, along with modern diagnostic tests and an overview of new approaches to prostate cancer. With an international author team, the ABC of Prostate Cancer is ideal for general practitioners, family physicians, specialist nurses, junior doctors, medical students and others working with prostate cancer patients and their families.
