This volume is the first interdisciplinary medical text on prostate cancer.
More than 50 chapters cover all aspects of diagnosis and screening and all forms of accepted treatments of the prostate, with emphasis on the retention of sexual and physiological function. Highlights of the book include the most exhaustive coverage currently available of advanced androgen-sensitive and androgen-refractory disease. An introductory chapter discusses the impact of advances in genetic understanding of prostate cancer on clinical practice.
