This superbly illustrated handbook is a practical resource for all those who provide support and care for men with prostate cancer - including GPs, nurses and allied health professionals as well as a refreshingly readable source of information for patients wanting to know more about their condition and its treatment.

Prostate cancer is a fast-changing field, and recent advances have significantly improved both the survival and quality of life of many men diagnosed with the disease.

As well as providing comprehensive information on the diagnosis, staging and management of the disease, the eighth edition of this ever-popular handbook is an invaluable update on new developments, including:

- Evidence for the debate surrounding PSA screening
- A better understanding of molecular and genetic advances
- The latest methods of delivering radiotherapy
- New drug treatments for castrate-resistant prostate cancer
- Important discussion of survivorship issues
