radical prostatectomy, conventional radiation, cryosurgery, brachytherapy,
proton beam therapy, watchful waiting, and more.
professionals may have conflicting opinions, and making the wrong choice
can be deadly:
best pal in grade school died from prostate cancer a few months after I
was diagnosed. His choice had been watchful waiting as his doctor had told
him that he would probably die of something else before the prostate cancer
could take its toll. Unfortunately he had a very fast growing cancer; it
quickly spread, and he was dead within two years of his diagnosis."

reading your manuscript I have relived a critical time in my life -
a time that could have been immeasurably helped if I would have had the
benefit of your long hours of research and easy to understand narrative.
should most certainly be hailed as an important addition to the 'must read'
list for the thousands of men annually diagnosed with prostate cancer. You
humanize the sometimes cold science that so many of us experienced when
we talked with our doctors, read what was available in the library, and
spent endless hours on the web in search of medical guidance.
I have talked
with many men in different parts of the country who would have benefited
greatly by finding in a single publication the range of treatment information
you cover. Congratulations
on your good work that will help many."
