The Prostate: A Guide for Men and the Women Who Love Them (A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book) by Patrick C. Walsh, Janet Farrar Worthington

This year, 200,000 men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. An even greater number will seek help for problems caused by prostate enlargement and inflammation. This book is for them--and for the wives, sisters, and daughters who often take responsibility for educating men about health matters and encouraging them to see a physician. Written by the world-renowned Johns Hopkins surgeon who devised the new, nerve-sparing surgical procedure for treating prostate cancer (generally known as the Walsh procedure) and an award-winning medical writer, here is an accessible and authoritative resource about the three most common prostate disorders: prostate cancer; benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, commonly known as enlarged prostate); and prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). The good news of the book is that effective treatment--and relief of symptoms--is available for all of these disorders. Its especially good to know that prostate cancer, when caught early, is curable. By alleviating mens fears about treatment and assuring them that many men can lead normal, active lives after prostate surgery, the authors hope to encourage men to seek medical attention for their prostate problems and help them to understand the options that are available.
