About this book

The thoroughly updated and revised third edition of Management of Prostate Cancer provides concise and authoritative guidance to today's best therapeutic regimens for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.  Highlighting the latest major advances in the field, the book includes chapters on the most controversial areas of prostate cancer – screening, chemoprevention, and active surveillance; updated chapters on genetic risk and progression, biopsy schemes, treatment of complications, and comparative treatment outcomes for surgery; and new chapters on risk factors, new markers, nomograms, and focal therapy. This volume also features overviews of new and emerging drugs and treatment paradigms for castrate resistant disease, advances that promise to extend life and perhaps even cure a subset of men with metastatic disease.

With its comprehensive illustrations and contributions from renowned experts in the field, Management of Prostate Cancer, 3rd Edition is an invaluable resource for practitioners in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

“Klein and Jones, with the support of 50 experts, wrote an updated and expanded third version of their excellent textbook. … A substantial part of the book dealt with the treatments of localised, locally advanced and metastatic disease. … This textbook presents an inclusive coverage of practical information and can be recommended for all urologists and oncologists, either certified or still in training.” (European Urology Today, Vol. 25 (2), March-May, 2013)

“This update on the management of prostate cancer is a must read not only for every urologist, but also for any clinician who wants a better understanding of this disease. … This book is definitely needed in an area where there have been such rapid changes. Although the book is targeted at medical students, residents, practitioners in urology other specialties, even lay people can appreciate some of the chapters. They are written very clearly, with easily understandable graphs and illustrations.” (Jack Mydlo, Doody’s Book Reviews, 2012)
