Men who have completed prostate cancer treatment often find themselves facing new challenges and setbacks that do not necessarily recede along with the cancer. Many books endeavor to explain the different types of prostate cancer treatments, but most conclude once a treatment choice has been made, offering readers little in the way of guidance through the challenges of the post-treatment period. After Prostate Cancer: A What-Comes-Next Guide to a Safe and Informed Recovery picks up where those books leave off. Dr. Arnold Melman, Chair of the Department of Urology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, offers a thorough description of what the prostate cancer recovery process is like and what readers can do to move themselves through recovery to the best possible health and long-term prognosis. Giving detailed explanations of what to expect and why based on diagnosis, treatment methodology, and other variables that make each man's post-treatment experience different, Dr. Melman offers strategies for mindfully and healthfully approaching post therapy issues, including confronting PSA measurement, erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence and psychological issues that are a common result of living through prostate cancer and treatment. Sharing the experiences of other prostate cancer patients in addition to accessible explanations of the available medical literature, Dr. Melman helps readers and their partners to get the best information, make the most informed decisions, feel comfortable with those decisions, and work through issues as they arise. Treatment is only the beginning of getting back to a healthy life after a diagnosis. After Prostate Cancer offers the best information to help readers with everything that comes next. "After Prostate Cancer offers readers order who are often faced with chaos. Melman and Newnham have written an informative guide for the recovering prostate cancer patient."--Mani Menon, M.D., The Raj and Padma Vattikuti Distinguished Chair and Director, Vattikuti Urology Institute, Henry Ford Health System "Now the hundreds of men who have benefitted directly from Dr. Arnold Melman's compassionate care for prostate cancer will swell into the thousands as the readers of this book take home his wisdom and sound advice. The information he provides is straightforward and practical, including both medical and emotional sides of the experience. This book is a welcome addition to the self-help library for prostate cancer survivors."--Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D., Professor of Behavioral Science, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center "This book summarizes the field of recovery after prostate cancer perfectly for the patient and his family. The authors cover all the topics that patients who have undergone treatment want to know about, including how to manage side effects. The text is readable and the information is imparted in an easy-to-understand style. I recommend this book to patients, their loved ones, and anyone else who has been affected by a prostate cancer diagnosis."--Ashutosh K. Tewari, M.D., M.Ch., Director, Prostate Cancer Institute and the LeFrak Robotic Surgery Center, Weill Cornell Medical College

Focal therapy is a promising option for selected patients who have localized low or intermediate-risk prostate cancer, providing a compelling alternative between active surveillance and radical therapies by targeting the index lesion and preserving as much tissue as possible. Numerous cohort studies have already investigated multiple focal techniques, such as cryotherapy, high-intensity focused ultrasound, brachytherapy, photodynamic therapy, laser therapy, irreversible electroporation and cyberknife methods, all of which have demonstrated positive oncological outcomes with 70 to 90 % negative follow-up biopsy. These various ablative techniques have produced only minor side-effects concerning urinary function, a low rate of erectile dysfunction, and have demonstrated a limited rectal toxicity. As a result, the primary end-point has now shifted and a new strategy needs to be established for patient follow-up and for defining treatment failure. Written by international experts in the field, this book is mainly focused on new techniques, all of which are amply illustrated. Technical Aspects of Focal Therapy in Localized Prostate Cancer will be of great practical value to all urologists and oncologists.

The task of choosing the right prostate cancer treatment is daunting. It is further complicated by conflicting information the patient receives from physicians and the Internet. This book is written by a prostate cancer survivor who now runs an international prostate cancer support group. It's about his journey and the important things he learned along the way. It is the book the author wishes had been available when he was diagnosed 6 years ago. It is intended to provide specific information for men who are at risk or have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. All major treatment options are examined and the pros and cons of each are summarized. A relatively new, non-invasive, highly effective treatment is highlighted. It is an option that cures cancer as well as any other option, but generally leaves the patient with a higher quality of life and fewer, if any, side effects. This book has been endorsed by several physicians as well as other highly respected people from all walks of life.

Image-Guided Prostate Cancer Treatments is a comprehensive reference and practical guide on the technology and application of ultrasound and MRI in the male pelvis, with special attention to the prostate. The book is organized into three main sections, the first of which is devoted to general aspects of imaging and image-guided treatments. The second section provides a systematic overview of the application of ultrasound and MRI to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the lower urinary tract. Performance of the ultrasound and MRI studies is explained, and the normal and abnormal pathological anatomy is reviewed. Correlation with the ultrasound in the same plane is provided to assist in understanding the MRI sequences. Biopsy and interventional procedures, ultrasound-MRI fusion techniques, and image-guided therapies, including focused ultrasound, photodynamic therapy, microwave and laser ablation, are all fully covered. The third section focuses on securing treatment effectiveness and the use of follow-up imaging to ensure therapeutic success and detect tumor recurrence at an early stage, which is vital given that prompt focal treatment of recurrence is very successful. Here, particular attention is paid to the role of Doppler ultrasound and DCE-MRI technologies. This book, containing a wealth of high-quality illustrations based on high-end equipment, will acquaint beginners with the basics of prostate ultrasound and MRI, while more advanced practitioners will learn new skills, means of avoiding pitfalls, and ways of effectively relating the imaging and image-guided treatments to the clinical situation. The information provided will permit a tailored approach in dealing with specific pathologic issues.
