Reviews

From the reviews:

"Treatment advances and discoveries in prostate cancer tumor biology are rapidly developing areas of medicine. … The book is a scholarly and satisfactory summary of many established findings. … is a highly informative read and a welcome addition to the existing literature. Ramon and Denis highlight an area that is of growing concern to patients and urologists … . Medical students and residents interested in a primer of established prostate cancer findings would find this book valuable." (Lalit R. Patel and Jonathan W. Simons, JAMA, Vol. 299 (16), 2008)
