Prostate Cancer

Expert Advice for Helping Your Loved One

An illuminating guide for those newly diagnosed with prostate cancer as well as their partners and caregivers—one filled with extensive details about diagnosis, treatments, and tips for thriving.

The second leading cause of cancer death for men, prostate cancer affects more than a quarter of a million individuals in the United States each year. Most men with prostate cancer will go through the journey from diagnosis through treatment and beyond with a partner and family members by their side. But there are few resources available that address the needs of both those with cancer and their loved ones who want to help.

Written in accessible language and backed by the latest scientific research, Prostate Cancer covers
• symptoms, diagnosis, and testing;
• the full range of treatment options available;
• practical tools partners can use to assist their loved one;
• advice on managing the side effects of treatment, including incontinence and sexual problems;
• tips to help cope with the emotional challenges associated with cancer;
• recommendations for keeping healthy with diet, exercise, and mindfulness; and
• insights into insurance issues.

With three leading experts in urology, surgery, and psychiatry as its coauthors, Prostate Cancer provides the information and guidance you need to better understand the disease, communicate with health care providers, and support yourself and your loved one through treatment and survivorship.

Garrett Key, MD (AUSTIN, TX), is an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School.

Endorsements

"My career of 40 years has revolved around prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. I wish this book would have been available for my practice to bridge and fill the gap between the patients and significant others. I now recommend this to all of my patients with prostate cancer."

- E. David Crawford, MD, University of California San Diego, Koman Family Outpatient Pavilion, Chairman, Prostate Conditions Education Council

"This book is a unique treatise encompassing a breadth of issues that the individual faces upon a diagnosis of prostate cancer in a loved one. It is a 'must read' so that a partner will not feel alone and uninformed along the journey."

- Muffaddal Morkas, MD, Texas Oncology Associates

"I have had the opportunity during fifty years of caring for thousands of men with prostate cancer and making every effort to communicate with their partners to help them through the process of diagnosis and treatment of their loved one's disease. I believe this book will help current partners who have so many questions that need to be answered so that they can be supportive caregivers. This book will be a tremendous help to patients and their partners."

- Gene Carlton, Emeritus Chair, Department of Urology, Baylor College of Medicine, Past President, American Urologic Association (1994-1995)

"Drs. Baum, Mobley, and Key have provided the medical community with a much needed guide on the management of prostate cancer directed not to the patient but to the patient's partner, friend or family member. It provides invaluable medical and psychological information that is often hard to find and will make dealing with this illness so much easier. It also is a wealth of rea,l scientifically-based evidence and a treasure trove of facts that will combat the many pieces of misinformation that clog the internet. The information is directed at both the body and the mind and as such will be a welcome addition to the patient-centered literature. Bravo to the three of them for putting this gem together."

- Charles B. Nemeroff, MD, PhD, Matthew P. Nemeroff Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, Director, Institute of Early Life Adversity Research, Dell Medical School, The University of Texas at Austin

"This book is a great resource for couples going through the life-changing diagnosis of prostate cancer. It provides excellent information on the diagnosis, the testing that is needed, treatment options, and outcomes following treatment. The book also provides insight into what your partner is going through during his treatment, and it also describes what you will likely experience emotionally and physically as you give him needed care and encouragement. It's a very valuable resource for all partners of prostate cancer patients, written by doctors whose advice is rooted in years of experience."

- Kathleen Shadle, MD, Radiation Oncologist, Houston Methodist Hospital

"This long-overdue book is a treasure trove of what every prostate cancer patient's partner needs on hand. From the initial diagnosis, through the treatment decision-making process and the subsequent journey of recovery and healing, the doctors' insights and information are invaluable gems. Kudos to the authors for their diligence and forethought."

- Raju Thomas, MD, FACS, FRCS, MHA, Professor and Chair, Department of Urology, Tulane University School of Medicine, President of the AUA, 2021-22
