First published four years ago, this guide aims to dispel the mysteries of the prostate for patients and their families. In non-technical language, Dr Rous explains the function of the healthy prostate and discusses the causes, symptoms and treatment of the most common prostate problems. Chapters on what the patient can expect when he goes to the doctor, surgical and non-surgical treatment, and prostate cancer are also included. A new chapter appears in this updated edition, dealing with diagnostic techniques and non-surgical treatments developed since 1988, including: prostate specific antigens, ultrasound of the prostate, balloon dilatation and hypothermia.
