Summary Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in American adult males. The content of this book, developed by clinical nurse experts, provides information on the state-of-the-art care of men with prostate cancer. Readers will gain a thorough understanding of symptoms, diagnostic methods, treatment options, and psychosocial effects of this disease.
