Summary

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in American adult males. The content of this book, developed by clinical nurse experts, provides information on the state-of-the-art care of men with prostate cancer. Readers will gain a thorough understanding of symptoms, diagnostic methods, treatment options, and psychosocial effects of this disease. A major focus of the book is on quality of life and the nurses' role in improving this through teaching patients and their families how to manage common symptoms and side effects such as urinary and sexual problems.
