5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent help in making decisions, 2 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers: An Essential Guide to Managing Prostate Cancer for Patients and Their Families (Paperback)
Oh to have a specialist as wise and knowledgeable as Mark Scholz! Everyone should read chapter 4 "Commuting the death sentence" in which the dangers of prostate cancer are put in perspective. Prostate cancer is atypical in generally being slow to develop and highly survivable. The key lies in finding out if you are at low, intermediate or high risk and taking appropriate action. The majority, at low risk, can avoid being panicked into unnecessary treatment.

The subtitle "No more unnecessary biopsies, radical treatment or loss of sexual potency" could be misleading though. The keyword here is "unnecessary". There is also the problem, especially for those dependent on the UK Health Service, of finding medics with the up to date views and equipment described in this book.

Don't think this is a relaxing read. Some of the stories in the book are quite scary; and that's just the ones from the doctor! Overall though this is a cracking book that, despite the offbeat title, is full of solid good sense.
