About this book

Prostate cancer is the commonest male cancer with over 5 million survivors in US alone.  Worldwide, the problem is staggering and has attracted significant attention by media, scientists and cancer experts. 

 

Significant research, discoveries, innovations and advances in treatment of this cancer have produced voluminous literature which is difficult to synthesize and assimilate by the medical community. Prostate Cancer: A Comprehensive Perspective is a comprehensive and definitive source which neatly resolves this problem. It covers relevant literature by leading experts in basic science, molecular biology, epidemiology, cancer prevention, cellular imaging, staging, treatment, targeted therapeutics and innovative technologies.

 

Prostate Cancer: A Comprehensive Perspective, is a valuable and timely resource for urologists and oncologists.

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Every possible aspect of prostate cancer is covered in this extraordinarily comprehensive review. … the book’s primarily audience is researchers and clinicians dedicated to prostate cancer research and care of prostate cancer patients. It also will be of interest to trainees in both of these areas who seek a broader understanding of the many aspects of prostate cancer. … Given the rapid pace of advance in knowledge, readers, particularly those not thoroughly familiar with a particular topic, will find this a useful first resource.” (Mark D. Hurwitz, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)
