Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers "is a report on the latest thinking in prostate cancer therapy: close monitoring-active surveillance rather than surgery or radiation-should be the initial treatment approach for many men. There are three stages of prostate cancer and this book will provide accurate information about how to distinguish between them: "Low-Risk, "which requires no immediate treatment; "Intermediate-Risk, "which will benefit from surgery, radiation, and/or hormonal therapy; and "High-Risk," a type that does require immediate treatment with a combination of therapies. In a unique collaboration, doctor and patient provide a wholly new perspective on managing this disease. Ralph Blum's account of his personal struggle, together with Dr.Mark Scholz's presentation of newscientific advances, provides convincing evidence that this noninvasive approach can be crucial in preventing tens of thousands of men from being overtreated every year. "Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers "serves as an indispensable map through the medical minefield of prostate cancer.
