Library Journal Review

The distinguishing quality of this lay reader's guide to men's cancers is that it is written by nurses who recognize the need for medical expertise with an emphasis on patient education in a clear, plainly written text. Under the direction of editor Haylock (Women's Cancers), the contributors explain prevention and treatment options for common male cancers: lung, prostate, and colon. The causes and nature of cancer as well as risk analysis, genetic testing and counseling, and treatment options are explained in order to provide a good understanding of what lies ahead for a cancer diagnosis and therapy. The nurse perspective of this book provides the advice, comfort, and detail that addresses the concerns of men facing a cancer journey. While Charles N. Inlander's The People's Medical Society Men's Health and Wellness Encyclopedia (LJ 5/1/98) and Men's Fitness Magazine's Complete Guide to Health and Well-Being (LJ 5/1/96) treat men's health issues generally, and prostate cancer is singled out in such excellent books as Allen E. Salowe's Prostate Cancer (LJ 1/98) and Robert Buckman's What You Really Need To Know About Cancer (LJ 9/15/97), this volume is unique in restricting itself to cancers in the male. Recommended as a complete guide to survivorship strategies.DJames Swanton, Harlem Hosp. Lib., New York (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
