Batteling the Killer Within and Winning

Men are in a raging battle with prostate cancer with nearly 200,000 in the U.S. alone diagnosed with this disease each year.  Using the experiences of the author and others in treatment with him, this book will help men and their families face this crisis, and provide an understanding of the threat posed to all men, by examining how:

  • Prostate cancer is the leading type of cancer among men, yet men have remained relatively silent, fostering a flawed medical care system.  Men must end their silence.
  • Having a father or brother with prostate cancer doubles a manís risk.  Other risk factors include age, race, nationality and diet.
  • African Americans have the highest prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates in the world requiring men in this group to take action earlier.
  • Prostate cancer is curable if it is detected early enough and the proper treatment undertaken.
  • Some major medical organizations do not advocate routine PSA screening creating an ongoing controversy among doctors.  This calls into question standards used to detect cancer at an early stage.
  • Many men survive prostate cancer by relying on their faith in God and the power of prayer.
To help all men better understand their prostate, prostate care and treatment options for prostate cancer, critically important information is provided in the appendices.
