""This book is a useful source of information to help you take responsibility for the health of your prostate. It gives details of dietary and other lifestyle measures to prevent diseases of the prostate and covers both conventional and natural treatments. I found it very comprehensive."" Doctor Andrew Weil, M.D. (http: //www.drweil.com/) The problem with conventional prostate treatments is that they attack the symptoms of prostate disease, downplay their side-effects, and do nothing to eradicate the underlying causes of prostate disease and prostate cancer. What this means to you is simple: you get all the risks of controversial medical procedures and no long term benefits. Something is terribly wrong with our focus. We concern ourselves with the symptoms of prostate conditions. We ignore the causes, which are mostly avoidable. Doesn't it make more sense to treat the causes? Instead of concentrating on the conditions that are treated aggressively as an assault on the body, your prostate problems can be prevented and reduced. Men's natural health depends on natural, not dangerous, prostate treatments and a healthy prostate diet. Do not believe doctors who downplay the side effects of proven toxic prostate drugs, biopsies, prostate cancer surgeries, or radiating or poisoning the body. You can't overpower the body without consequences. Many modern day medical prostate treatments are as primitive from a holistic point of view as the practice of blood-letting of prior centuries is to us today. Incontinence and wearing diapers or saying bye-bye to good sex due to impotence are just some of the side effects of modern prostate treatments. Prostate Health Is In Your Hands But you can reverse the conditions of prostate disease without these side effects. You can strengthen your body rather than weaken it through conventional invasive techniques. You can regain your prostate health. Wise up! Use your prostate condition as a wake-up call to get a healthy prostate gland. Men's sex health depends on the health of your prostate gland. You can reverse a chronic prostate problem by changing your lifestyle. I did it and I will show you how to do it for yourself. You will be far stronger and healthier. You will have the benefits of a vital prostate to nurture you for many years of dynamic and vital health. Prostate cancer, prostatitis and BPH enlarged prostates are names for prostate symptoms caused by an unhealthy prostate. It begs the questions: What causes an unhealthy prostate gland and prostate cancer? The author examines the conventional medical prostate treatments and discusses their risks so you can make an informed decision. This book will explain how to cure your prostate problem naturally-without the devastating side effects of conventional medical treatments. Ron Bazar, a Harvard MBA and natural health entrepreneur over four decades, at age 55, experienced sudden complete urinary retention (inability to urinate), and was diagnosed with BPH, an enlarged prostate. He was scheduled twice for emergency surgery but both times declined. It took him over seven years to figure out how to heal his prostate naturally without conventional surgeries. He saw top practitioners of all kinds diligently following their advice but to no avail and tried anything he could think might help with no success until he finally discovered solutions that had eluded them all. He shares his insights and unique perspective that will assist you in a much shorter time frame following his guidelines. His roadmap will empower you to succeed no matter which kind of prostate disease you face. Your prostate health is in your hands."

Prostate cancer is the most frequent genitourinary malignancy that garners significant medical and media attention. Over the past decade significant new discoveries have been made that have enabled substantial improvements in screening, diagnosis and management of this disease. Importantly, there has been constant evolution of the best way to treat these patients. This text will provide a single, comprehensive reference source that incorporates all the latest information regarding prostate cancer. It will serve as an easy reference source for researchers, clinicians, individuals in training, allied health professionals and medical students regarding prostate cancer by focusing on the controversial points of debate. New data regarding PSA screening, prostate cancer biomarkers, diagnostic evaluation techniques, surveillance protocols, and treatment interventions for localized and more advanced disease will be discussed. Gaps in current knowledge and areas for future research will be highlighted. Ongoing important clinical trials which could imminently yield significant new knowledge will be discussed. Uniquely to all of the above will be the clinical scenario-based format of this text. For the practicing physician, the prostate cancer screening and treatment situations will hopefully become better understood. We will incorporate key educational concepts in the framework of patient situations with evidence-based discussions of screening, diagnosis, evaluation, and therapeutic management. To provide even more insight, we plan on a comment section from leaders in the field that will be more “opinion-based” allowing the reader to get access to experienced physicians’ thought processes and practice patterns. All chapters will be authored by experts in their respective fields and incorporate original figures and illustrations to the extent possible. We anticipate that this book will quickly become the ready reference source for professionals and students in various fields with an interest in the management of a complex and multifaceted disease such as prostate cancer. The book will be comprehensive and encompass the entire the spectrum of prostate cancer. The information will be presented in a succinct and easily understandable manner so as to appeal to both scientists and clinicians.

The odds are more than forty percent that cancer will touch your life. Including families, cancer affects almost four million people per year. There are few common medical realities surrounded by as much malefaction, mystique, and misunderstanding as cancer. In When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer, author Dr. Kevin P. Ryan helps you see past the macabre mythology. Stressing patient autonomy and the need to build an Oncology team, Dr. Ryan addresses the need for knowledge when receiving the overwhelming news that you may or do have cancer. He covers not just the fear of the diagnosis and certain aspects of the journey of care, but also discusses the entire trek from when the tumor is suspected and cancer is diagnosed. He talks about ethics of cancer care, challenges of managed care, psychosocial issues, ethical and legal components, and end-of-life issues and spirituality. Dr. Ryan also touches on difficult concepts such as physician-assisted suicide, durable power of attorney, living wills, failure to diagnose, treatments and staging, lost opportunities in life, euthanasia, and how death by secondary intent has led to cancer cases being second in frequency of lawsuits. A common-sense, straight-talking guide, When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer provides answers to many questions in order to reduce anxiety and help those confronted with this disease to marshal their internal resources, conquer their natural fears, and ultimately learn to become cancer survivors.
