The range of controversial therapies and treatments for prostate cancer is greater than that of any other cancer affecting men. Many of the current books on prostate cancer suffer from considerable bias promoting one treatment over another without good scientific evidence. Winning the Battle Against Prostate Cancer is an unbiased and up-to-date look at prostate cancer treatments and therapies, resolving the problem of contradictory and incomplete information. Dr. Chodak outlines the pros and cons of all reasonable treatment options, recognizing that men and their families need more than just the facts — they are concerned not only with their survival but also what life will be like after treatment. This book offers empathetic insight into the impact of the disease on day-to-day activities so that patients and family members have a clear understanding of what lies ahead and options that are available should complications arise. The book does not gloss over the controversies but presents them in a clear, concise, and easy-to-understand manner.

Men who have completed prostate cancer treatment often find themselves facing new challenges and setbacks that do not necessarily recede along with the cancer. Many books endeavor to explain the different types of prostate cancer treatments, but most conclude once a treatment choice has been made, offering readers little in the way of guidance through the challenges of the post-treatment period. After Prostate Cancer: A What-Comes-Next Guide to a Safe and Informed Recovery picks up where those books leave off. Dr. Arnold Melman, Chair of the Department of Urology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, offers a thorough description of what the prostate cancer recovery process is like and what readers can do to move themselves through recovery to the best possible health and long-term prognosis. Giving detailed explanations of what to expect and why based on diagnosis, treatment methodology, and other variables that make each man's post-treatment experience different, Dr. Melman offers strategies for mindfully and healthfully approaching post therapy issues, including confronting PSA measurement, erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence and psychological issues that are a common result of living through prostate cancer and treatment. Sharing the experiences of other prostate cancer patients in addition to accessible explanations of the available medical literature, Dr. Melman helps readers and their partners to get the best information, make the most informed decisions, feel comfortable with those decisions, and work through issues as they arise. Treatment is only the beginning of getting back to a healthy life after a diagnosis. After Prostate Cancer offers the best information to help readers with everything that comes next. "After Prostate Cancer offers readers order who are often faced with chaos. Melman and Newnham have written an informative guide for the recovering prostate cancer patient."--Mani Menon, M.D., The Raj and Padma Vattikuti Distinguished Chair and Director, Vattikuti Urology Institute, Henry Ford Health System "Now the hundreds of men who have benefitted directly from Dr. Arnold Melman's compassionate care for prostate cancer will swell into the thousands as the readers of this book take home his wisdom and sound advice. The information he provides is straightforward and practical, including both medical and emotional sides of the experience. This book is a welcome addition to the self-help library for prostate cancer survivors."--Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D., Professor of Behavioral Science, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center "This book summarizes the field of recovery after prostate cancer perfectly for the patient and his family. The authors cover all the topics that patients who have undergone treatment want to know about, including how to manage side effects. The text is readable and the information is imparted in an easy-to-understand style. I recommend this book to patients, their loved ones, and anyone else who has been affected by a prostate cancer diagnosis."--Ashutosh K. Tewari, M.D., M.Ch., Director, Prostate Cancer Institute and the LeFrak Robotic Surgery Center, Weill Cornell Medical College

Stephen has had a rather frantic 2016. Diagnosed early with an aggressive form of prostate cancer, he found himself entering a battle that had tragically beaten most of his relatives before him. Undeterred to give up despite being caught off-guard however, his decision from the very beginning was to fight like nobody has ever fought before, facing his failing health head-on and finding humour in the most unlikely of situations. The Topic of Cancer chronicles the incredibly heart-warming and side-splittingly funny real life tale of Stephen's battle, as he attempts to come to terms with his condition and ultimately fight it out to the other side. Shooting from the hip and telling it exactly as it is, Stephen chronicles his experience with being diagnosed and dealing with constant medical advisors while still trying to enjoy his life to the full. Unafraid to be frank about the ins-and-outs of living with the disease, The Topic of Cancer uniquely and unashamedly details an experience that many men have dangerously ignored for years. Stephen's charming sense of humour and astonishing optimism has allowed him to persevere through even his darkest moments, an uplifting approach he'd love to see increase the ability to be able to talk more openly about cancer in the future. By generously donating the proceeds of this work to charity and attempting to spread awareness on one of the most dangerous forms of cancer for men currently in the UK, Stephen is one step closer to seeing this dream become a reality. With little written about the personal experiences of those suffering with prostate cancer, The Topic of Cancer endeavours to provide a relatable account that anyone suffering, directly or indirectly, can take solace and laugh along with!

More than half of all men will develop prostate problems during their lifetimes, while one in eight will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Even when prostate cancer is successfully treated, the side effects from the treatments (such as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, and sepsis) can be debilitating. Dr. Gavi, Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, teamed up with researcher Maya Eylon to compile more than 100 recent, reliable, and relevant international studies on the effects of diet on prostate health. The good news is that scientific research has confirmed that 50 percent of prostate cancer cases can be prevented by making simple dietary changes, along with screening for precursors, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising adequately. Dr. Gavi summarizes these findings in easy-to-understand terminology with each study fully referenced. Readers discover how key compounds in specific foods work to prevent cancer cells from forming. Cruciferous vegetables (glucosinolates), tomatoes (lycopene), soy foods (isoflavones), and green tea (catechins) are the superfoods that make a difference. Recommendations are provided for the optimal way to prepare these foods and for how much of each food is needed to reap the greatest health benefits. The two types of prostate check-ins (screening and diagnostic tests) are also discussed, and a prostate cancer self-screening checklist is provided. The findings and information presented are powerful tools that can empower men to make vital lifestyle changes that will have a significant impact on their health.

The book started out in 2010 as a private retirement project for the kids. It expanded into writing about the health benefits of eating real food after listening to what the grandchildren were eating in school. Then came the big announcement day. “Rick...you have cancer,” and the time clock for enjoying a full retirement promptly crashed and burned. Out of the ashes came the revelation that men are dying from prostate cancer and all I see and hear is a women’s cancer message. I was then motivated to share what the prostate cancer stage IV(c), Gleason score of 9 announcement felt like from a type-A personality, goal-setting man. Now a guide, the pages tell the story right up to when the time it takes for a half-day of production takes three days of rest and pain pills. Brutal is not a big enough word. Read the guide and soak in this fact. All men will have prostate cancer by age eighty-four. So says my oncologist. Suffer the consequences of not paying attention to the numbers and not going for a complete physical after age thirty-five. My red light flashed bright when I heard from the urologist the blood in my semen will go away in a couple of weeks. It did. The cancer did not. The year was 2011. I should have insisted further testing be done and closer follow-up visits be scheduled.

What foods should you eat if you want to keep your prostate healthy? How does sexual activity affect the health of your prostate? What are ways you can prevent prostate cancer? What should African-American men know about prostate cancer? What are the best alternatives to radiation and surgery in treating prostate cancer? What are the symptoms of an unhealthy prostate? These are some of the many important questions that are answered by Dr. Daniel W. Nixon, one of America's premier cancer research institute leaders, and Dr. Max Gomez, the charismatic health commentator whose reports are aired on NBC television stations nationwide. The authors not only provide indispensable guidance in cancer prevention but also offer a dynamic, new noninvasive treatment of prostate cancer. Packed with information, The Prostate Health Program explains in clear, simple language the link between obesity and prostate cancer, the difference between an enlarged prostate and a diseased one, the causes of frequent urination and pain, and the specific prostate problems pertaining to gay men. Drs. Nixon and Gomez offer a user-friendly plan of diet, exercise, and behavioral change that men can easily incorporate into their lives. The authors explain why aggressive treatment, such as radiation and surgery, is often unnecessary, less effective, and more dangerous -- often leaving men incontinent and impotent -- than other treatments. The cornerstones of this unique program are the Prostate Health Pyramid and the Transition Diet, both of which were created specifically for this book and are the ultimate tools in prostate cancer prevention, control, and treatment. First, the foods that protect the health of the prostate are identified; then, food changes are introduced slowly for more effective and long-lasting reform of eating habits. Best of all, quick and easy recipes created by chefs at the Culinary Institute of America provide a menu that is healthy and delicious. With its combination of cutting-edge research and highly respected, world- renowned authors, The Prostate Health Program is the definitive defense against a deadly disease.

58 Unique Prostate Cancer Juice Recipes: All-natural Home Remedy Solutions That Will Get Your Body Stronger and Healthier to Fight Cancer Cells By Joe Correa CSN The prostate is a vital gland in the male reproductive system that wraps around the male urethra. Its main function is to secrete an alkaline fluid that constitutes about 30% of the semen volume. However, prostate problems are one of the most common health problems in men. The fact that one man in seven will be diagnosed with prostate cancer is simply surprising. This extremely serious disease is the third leading cause of cancer death in the US. These statistics suggest that taking care of your reproductive health and recognizing the symptoms of prostate problems is vital for preventing these complications. The most common symptoms of prostate problems and cancer include urination abnormalities, pain, painful ejaculation, pelvic or abdominal pain, erectile dysfunction, extremity swelling, and blood in urine or semen. Although not all of these symptoms indicate prostate cancer, they might be a sign of some serious medical conditions that require an immediate medical intervention. Prostate cancer can only be diagnosed by tissue biopsy. The question is what can you do to prevent prostate cancer? The answer lies in a proper diet. Our body is a truly fantastic organism that has the ability to defend and cure itself. This is why it's crucial to help your immune system to get stronger and boost your overall health. Eating the right amounts of fruits and vegetables will definitely reduce the risk of prostate cancer. The recommended daily amount of fresh fruits and vegetables is about 4-5 cups. Most people have busy schedules and that is why I definitely believe that juicing is a great option. Although many kind of fruits and vegetables are extremely healthy, knowing which ones to combine to get the most benefit is the key. Green, red and orange fruits and vegetables are loaded with carotenoids which are especially beneficial for prostate cancer. Some of the best juice ingredients include: spinach, kale, dandelion greens, oranges, grapefruits, berries, carrots, and tomatoes. These tasty fruits and vegetables are the basis of juice recipes in this book. Most of these ingredients have a relatively neutral taste and can easily be combined with different herbs and spices for a superb taste. These juices are powerful enough to boost up your immune system within a couple of days and help you prevent prostate cancer.
