A number of readers (again, support group leaders in particular) may be interested in knowing that the chapter on prostate cancer in the on-line edition of Cancer Management was updated earlier this year and is easily accessible (at no cost) on the Cancer Network web site.
The chapter is written by Dr. Judd Moul of the Duke Prostate Cancer and colleagues. (Dr. Moul is also the Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of The “New” Prostate Cancer InfoLink.) It includes discussions of all of the following topics:
- Etiology and Risk Factors
- Signs and Symptoms
- Screening and Diagnosis
- Prognosis and Natural History
For the newly diagnosed patient who wants a thorough education quickly, it offers a relatively short, straightforward, up to date, and reliable introduction to the subject of prostate cancer for the educated non-specialist, with specific discussion of the different types of treatment that are commonly used in the management of localized, recurrent, and metastatic prostate cancer.
