Utilizing his experience as both a clinician and an educator, Gerald Chodak, MD, is one of the leading experts on prostate cancer.

"Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men with almost 200,000 new cases being diagnosed each year. Today increasing numbers of men and their families play a more active role in their treatment and the results can be seen in the increase of men who survive prostate cancer. Yet each year over 27,000 men die from prostate cancer. This makes prostate cancer the second leading cause of cancer death in men behind lung cancer.

The range of controversial therapies and treatments for prostate cancer is greater than that of any other cancer affecting men. This makes it difficult for men and their families to determine what are the best options available. Rarely do doctors agree on which treatment a patient should receive or when they should receive it. And many of the current books on prostate cancer suffer from considerable bias promoting one treatment over another without good scientific evidence.

Winning the Battle Against Prostate Cancer resolves the problem of contradictory and incomplete information. The book is an unbiased and up-to-date look at prostate cancer treatments and therapies. Dr. Chodak lays out the pros and cons of all reasonable treatment options including the chances that a man may have a good result or develop side effects or complications.

Equally important Dr. Chodak recognizes that men and their families need more than just the facts. They are concerned not only with their survival but also what life will be like after treatment. Winning the Battle Against Prostate Cancer offers empathetic insight into the impact of the disease on day-to-day activities so that patients and family members have a clear understanding of what lies ahead and what options are available should complications arise. The book does not gloss over the controversies but presents them in a clear, concise, easy-to-understand manner."

I was a patient of Dr. Chodak's. With this book, I am glad to see he continues to help men with prostate cancer.

Dr. Chodak compiles data from various studies and relies on data from randomized, controlled studies. The book is filled with a lot of tables and charts. There is even a chapter on understanding medical studies. The timeline for prostate cancer is decades. But many of the treatments are relatively new, so there may not be a 15 or 20 year study of survival or recurrence, let alone a 10 year study.

The book covers surgery, radiation and hormone therapy as well as alternative treatments and newer treatments.

This book is invaluable for newly diagnosed individuals or those debating treatment options.

Bought this book for a family member. They loved it! The person said the book was so detailed and interesting that he could not put it down and read the entire book in one day. He told me that the book helped him to better understand his condition, and helped him when talking to his doctors and when asking questions about his condition at the hospital. I highly recommend buying it to anyone that is going through this devasting experience, since it greatly helped my family member.

It was great to find a current book on Prostate Cancer that does not have an adgenda! Dr. Chodak gives all currently recognized approaches a fair evaluation rather than promoting the one that he may have learned in medical school as the only solution. I am choosing proton therapy for its 20 year history of success and lack of side effects.

Great book, BUT the technology is moving forward so fast this book is already obsolete in a few places and will only get worse with time. Talk to your doctor. BTW, I went with the external beam radiation and the prognosis is good. I have passed the book onto the next victim that I know.
  • Bludworm
I have been reading a bunch of these books on prostate cancer, and this is the best of them. If you are trying to decide about which treatment is best for you, based on the latest studies, this is the book you want. You will be better informed than your urologist.
  • Yanthyr
This book is good however it doesn't go into detail as much as I would have liked. The book is still good value .
  • Laizel
I read this after I read 100 Questions and Answers About Prostate Cancer. Provided a lot of the same information but this just did not hook my interest, totally different writing style. It was written more from the medical profession rather than from a personal level trying to understand all the options that are available.
Dr. Chodak has written a good resource book for anyone that has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He does a good job of explaining the staging and grading scores, so that you can better understand the extent of your cancer. In addition, he includes solid information about the various treatment options so that you have more information than just what your doctor tells you. This information is helpful in making a decision about how to best treat "your" particular cancer.
