About this book

Prostate cancer is the most common neoplasm in men and its management is very complex, in terms of both diagnosis and treatment. In recent years the value of multidisciplinary management within a prostate cancer unit has been increasingly recognized. Such a multidisciplinary approach within a specialized unit involves a variety of specialists, including urologists, oncologists, radiotherapists, radiologists and pathologists. This book describes in detail the advantages of multidisciplinary management of prostate cancer. It opens by explaining the nature of the required multidisciplinary team and the potential benefits of the prostate cancer unit as a structure for the delivery of specialist multidisciplinary care. Epidemiological aspects favoring multidisciplinary management are described and each element of care within the context of the prostate cancer unit is then discussed; also has been described the role of advanced  imaging (Multiparametric MRI) in the management of PCa. Early diagnosis, risk classification, treatment decision making, surgery, radiotherapy, medical therapies and health care support are all fully considered. This book will be informative and enlightening for all who are involved in the management of patients with prostate cancer. 

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This short overview of the multidisciplinary management of prostate cancer focuses on, and advocates for, a team approach. … This will appeal to a wide audience, including clinicians, diagnostic staff (pathology and radiology) as well as cancer center directors and administrators. It would likely be a reference for those planning to implement a multidisciplinary team approach for prostate cancer. … this concise book endeavors to argue for the team approach to prostate cancer care, and it accomplishes this goal.” (Edouard Trabulsi, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)
