Harley Haynes MD, Richard M. Miles
A vital overview of prostate cancer for the millions of men that are suffering and their loved ones
The moment the family doctor says, “You might have prostate cancer,” most patients immediately ask themselves, “Am I going to die?” Their life is turned upside down as they are faced with a scary new reality they likely know little about. Patients must familiarize themselves with strange new medical terminology, tests, procedures, and, worst of all, major changes to their bodies. The Prostate Cancer Owner’s Manual offers clarity on these topics to help readers and their loved ones get through this life-changing diagnosis that will take years to overcome.
Harley Haynes, MD, and Richard Miles have both been there and done that. As prostate cancer survivors, they understand the questions that recently diagnosed patients have and the challenges they face. Here, they provide a blend of medical expertise and personal knowledge and insight to help patients and their families make sense of the road ahead of them—equipping them with the facts they need to make informed decisions and confront prostate cancer head on. Haynes and Miles answer the questions readers may have and detail the possible outcomes they will face—without mincing words about the tough realities of living with prostate cancer—while offering hope for recovery.
