Summary
Offers the authoritative and definitive guide for men of all ages for better prostate health and longevity. For the 20 million men who are currently coping with prostate health issues in the U.S., and for the 200,000 diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, The Whole Life Prostate Book is the go-to resource for everything patients and their families need to know to survive and thrive. Lifestyle choices--diet, exercise, and health maintenance--can defy prostate cancer; according to Dr. Carter, it's never too late, or too early, to start following his preventive program. He explains how to read test results and outlines all of the treatment options available for prostate cancer, from radiation therapy and radical prostatectomy to brachytherapy and Proactive Surveillance, an innovative approach pioneered by Dr. Carter and designed to preserve the prostate for life
