The Key to Prostate Cancer: 30 Experts Explain 15 Stages of Prostate Cancer
This is the definitive reference for prostate cancer patients seeking to understand their disease and its treatment.
– Charles “Snuffy” Myers, MD
For men who wish to fight the fear of a prostate cancer diagnosis with knowledge, this is the book.
About the Book
THE KEY TO PROSTATE CANCER is a Guide to Personalized Care.  Studies show that treatment choices based on partial information often lead to regret. Patients struggle to pinpoint correct knowledge amidst a deluge of data overload. With a self-administered quiz, Key directs readers to targeted information that is stage-specific. Written by 30 leading experts* and edited by a prostate oncologist, Key is a welcome antidote for an industry controlled by surgeons.
THE KEY is a synthesis of my lifelong career at Prostate Oncology Specialists, a medical practice on the forefront of prostate cancer for 20 years. My first book Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers was an exposé on the over-use of surgery. This second book addresses another burgeoning problem—the crisis of information overload. The explosion of new information overwhelms patients and doctors alike. Once men face a prostate cancer diagnosis the word “cancer” may lead to fearful thinking and a bad treatment decision. Good decisions result from hearing unbiased, balanced, and individualized advice.
This book directs patients to understand options and educate them about treatments specific for their stage of prostate cancer.
• A short STAGING QUIZ directs patients to their correct stage and which of the seven sections of the book to read.
• The book is divided into seven sections written by experts in prostate cancer. Five of the sections cover the FIVE STAGES OF BLUE.
• The average reader will only need to read three sections: Section I, which covers PSA, Gleason score and body scans, Section VII, which covers lifestyle and general health and only one of the additional sections—one that is  related to that patient’s prostate cancer stage.
