"Vital new information for men diagnosed with prostate cancer!" -George Johnson, Director of the Informed Prostate Cancer Support Group in San Diego, the largest independent group in California "I have had treatment for prostate cancer and have been thru the mill. If I were going to go through the process again, I would start with Dr Cohen's book." -P.C., independent review at Amazon.com Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs 2014 is the first and only book that focuses on the new tests and treatments revolutionizing prostate cancer care today. Yet most doctors and patients are still not aware of the many breakthroughs already being used at a few top cancer centers in the U.S. So tens of thousands of men diagnosed with prostate cancer get surgery or radiation they don't need with their serious, often permanent side effects. In a step-by-step manner, Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs 2014 describes the new methods of diagnosis & treatment and where to obtain them. In this highly-praised book, you'll discover: - Why 85% of men who get surgery or radiation for prostate cancer do not need it. - Why a high PSA test does not necessarily mean cancer. - How to tell if you really need a biopsy (many men don't need one). - Why a targeted biopsy is superior and safer, and where to get one. - Why the new prostate DCE-MRI is key to deciding on treatment. - Genetic tests available today for accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment. - Alpharadin, the new, targeted treatment for bone metastases. Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs addresses: - Why men should continue to get an annual PSA test. - Why doctors recommend prostate surgery or radiation for men who don't need it. - The tests you really need for a full picture of your prostate cancer. - New treatment options your doctor may not tell you about. This book will also help you determine: - If you truly need surgery or radiation therapy (some men do, many men don't) - If you are a candidate for active surveillance. - If medication treatment instead of surgery/radiation is a valid choice for you.

About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: JAY S. COHEN, M.D. Nationally respected for his groundbreaking work on preventing medication side effects, Dr. Cohen, a prostate cancer survivor, now informs men of new breakthroughs in diagnosis & treatment that are revolutionizing prostate cancer care today. These methods, available at only a few medical centers, can allow tens of thousands of men each year to avoid unnecessary surgery and radiation, which often cause serious and permanent impotence and/or incontinence. Because many doctors are not aware of the new advances, so they don't relay this information to patients. In a step-by-step, easy-reading manner, Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs informs men and the women who love them of the new methods and how and where to obtain them.
