  • An invaluable overview of the current concepts and practice in this rapidly evolving field
  • Comprehensive and easy-to-read

This comprehensive and easy-to-read monograph is an authoritative update on clinical prostate cancer. It has been prepared by an international, multidisciplinary team at the invitation of the International Prostate Health Council think tank.

The management of prostate cancer – the most prevalent type of cancer in men in the Western world – has been revolutionized by the vastly increased knowledge and new fact-finding research on its natural (treated) history, the new concepts on diagnosis and prognosis, and a broad range of valid, competing treatment options.

A particular strength of the book is its presentation of the therapeutic options for patients with localized and advanced disease, including hormonal treatment.

Medical and radiation oncologists as well as urologists will find an invaluable overview of the current concepts and practice in this rapidly evolving field.
