About this book

Introduction

​ Primer on Prostate Cancer will provide readers with a thorough introductory review on prostate cancer, treatment guidelines, and emerging therapies available for the disease. The book was originally commissioned due to recent developments in therapies for prostate cancer. This concise pocket book will review prostate cancer’s epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and medical management (discussing surgery, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, bone-targeting therapy, and more). Busy healthcare professionals will benefit from this text, which will not only cover the basics of prostate cancer, but discuss up-to-date national and international treatment guidelines and upcoming therapies.
