Fantastic!!

I’ve been the medical field for 40 years. I read this book after my biopsy. 7.2 PSA and 6-6-7 Gleason. This book gives you clear and concise information to help you make an intelligent decision. It crushes your fear of getting your PSA numbers. Prostate cancer is a #2 killer of men because of fear and embarrassment. By the time you’re symptomatic it could be too late. Do yourself a favor and read this.

Must read!

A must read for any man given a prostate cancer diagnosis!
This book allowed me to have cogent dialog with urologist I've met with for 2nd opinions.
Listening to Surviving Prostate Cancer on Audible was like spending 20 hours with Dr. Walsh telling you all you need to know about causes, therapies and cures for prostate cancer.

comprehensive view of prostate cancer

this book offers a very good overview of issues related to prostate cancer. since Dr Walsh is a surgeon he focuses more on surgical treatments than on radiology and ADT treatments. but it is still very worthwhile to listen to the many aspects of cancer addressed in this book

Facing Prostate Cancer? Start here

My Urologist recommended this book after sharing that my biopsy showed I had type II prostate cancer. This book will answer all your questions about the nature of prostate cancer, the different types, treatment options pros and cons, male anatomy, medications, caregiver support, pre and postoperative preparation and much more. After reading this book and talking with my doctor I have been able to make a educated decisions on my preferred treatment plan. Highly recommend this to new members of the reluctant brotherhood.

The scariest book I've ever read (listen)

This is the scariest book I've ever read and the most informative book I've ever read. I also bought the hard cover book and followed along with the audible version. I wrote notes throughout the book. highlighted many paragraphs. This book helped to decide what procedure I'm going to choose. They explain all the available options. They are a bit biased one procedure I believe. The book is very deep but easy to follow for the most part. I wish everyone the best of luck and well wishes for everyone going through this. You will get better.
