The new edition of an eminent urologist’s finish guide to the prostate.
Prostate difficulties finally affect closely half of all American males: cancer of the prostate is all too common, and closely all men over fifty have numerous proof of enlarged prostate, which causes urinary difficulty. Now, in a new edition of his best-selling book for lay readers, Dr. Stephen Rous draws on his forty years of clinical experience to give readers the best data available on how the prostate works, sicknesses that affect it, treatment selections for dissimilar conditions, and the recuperation routine after surgery, including possible side effects. Dr. Rous explains how the necessary PSA blood test and other tests are interpreted. He evaluates alternative-medicine options, dissimilar surgical treatments (including minimally invasive techniques), and cases where radiation may be helpful. For older men with prostate cancer, he discusses the age factor in decision making: how to determine with your doctor whether surgery, medical treatment, or watchful waiting is the best option.
