Arnot, Dr. Bob, The Prostate Cancer Protection Plan: The foods, supplements and drugs that could save your life. Could prostate cancer happen to you?  New research shows that up to 25 percent of men in their thrties have microscopic, latent prostate cancer. By the time a man enters his fifties, the fgure is around 40 percent. In some men, these cancers remain dormant, but in others they can become clinically significant tumors, sometimes at ferocious speed. At present, nothing can prevent these latent cancers from starting, but there is some great news. Many top researchers believe their transition into active, even life-threatening, tumors may be delayed or even prevented entirely. As with breast cancer, the author has found that the foods men eat can have a profound influence on whether or not they get clinical prostate cancer. In this book, he tells us what these wonderous foods are and how we can use them as part of a sensible, fun, and delicious eating program. He bases his menus on the incredibly varied, time-tested, and delicious cuisines from other cultures where the incidence of prostate cancer is dramatially less than in the U.S. And he provides clear and simple scientific explanations for his choices, so the reader can customize his own plan and still get the right foods with the right nutrients. With delicious recipes, advice on eating out and on the run, stress-busting techniques, fitness programs, a self-test for asssessing your own risk, and other postate cancer-fighting strategies, this book offers a safe, effective program that will not only stave off this dread killer, but will help men lose weight, gain energy, and feel more relaxed as well.

Bostwick, David, Gregory MacLennan & Thayne Larson Prostate Cancer: What Every Man-and his family-needs to know. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer among American men - an estimated one out of six men will develop it - but if detected early, it is also among the most treatable forms of cancer. But most men - and their families - lack the most basic information about what to do when confronted with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. This book, written by a team of internationally known and respected medical experts, sets out to explain everything a man needs to know. Written under the auspices of the American Cancer Society, the nation's leader in cancer research, education and rehabilitation, it contains all the most up-to-date information about the disease. Even more, it is a patient's advocacy book, offering medical, practical, psychological, social and emotional support. Through case histories and anecdotes - and always with compassion - it addresses the full range of issues that men with the disease may face. Villard Books, 1996 ISBN 0-679-77189-1 Buy This Book!

Each year, 40,000 American men have their prostates surgically removed or burned with radiation, often within 48 hours of cancer diagnosis. While doing so may eliminate an immediate problem, it will result in reduced quality of life, often including impotence and incontinence. And unfortunately, surgery and radiation don't work as well as claimed. Often the cancer recurs - 35% require retreatment within five years. This book will teach you how to:  Stop prostate trouble in its tracks using nutrition, massage, herbs, homeopath, and other alternative healing approaches. Understand what causes cancer, reverse the cancer-causing effects, cleanse and strengthen vital organs, enhance your sex life and virtually eliminate your chance for disease. The prostate is that vital center from which men derive their vitality, creative energy, and sexual drive. Without it, overall health and quality of life is severely diminished. That's why it's important to take care of your prostate now, before trouble begins. Waiting for symptoms may be waiting too long. Often there are no warning signs, even in cases of advanced cancer.

That's all about to cahnge. With this book, you'll learn how to determine if you're at risk for life-threatening conditions. Once you gauge your risk levels, the authors will teach you which tests to request from your doctor and how to make sure you get them.

Kantoff, Philip & McConnell, Malcolm, Prostate Cancer: A family consultation. The introduction of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test has led to a sharp increase in the number of dianosed prostate cancer cases. If it has been determined that you have prostate cancer, you and your family will have many questions and concerns that will require expert attention. However, doctors seldom have the time to access the unique needs of every case and devise plans accordingly, and patients are often caught in a rapid and confusing chain of events that leaves them vulnerable. As director of genitourinary oncology at the world-famous Dana-Fisher Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, the author understands that the optimal course of treatment for prostate cancer - surgery, radiation therapy, cryosurgery or watchful waiting - depends on an individual's age, overall health, and tumor condition. This compassionate book provides you and your family with a wealth of advice - the quivalent of a complete consulation with the author, who specializes in devising treatment programs for men who have been dianosed with this life-changing disease.
