Book Description:
"The Benign and Malignant Prostate" contains all you need to know about the prostate from its anatomy to the most recent sophisticated robotic technical procedures. This book provides a comprehensive understandable account of benign and malignant prostate conditions, and is designed to be undemanding yet thorough and informative. Medical students will find this book useful because of its concise, easy-to-follow format, in addition to its depth and breadth of knowledge. Interns and residents, as well as practicing physicians and family doctors will consider it an efficient and current reference.

Each chapter is self contained to make it easier to obtain information about a particular topic without having to refer to the whole book. The book is superbly illustrated throughout in order to enhance the clarity and understanding of the contents. Over 1500 references are cited for those who wish to have a more in-depth insight. The text and references are up to-date and include the most recent innovations, ensuring that the manuscript will remain relevant for some years to come.

More than 30 qualified medical practitioners have contributed to the authorship about aspects with which they are clinically involved on a regular daily basis. Some are renowned experts in their field. The book contains 15 chapters. Six chapters are devoted to the benign prostate and provide practical advice regarding diagnosis and treatment. The remaining nine chapters are devoted to the detection, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and outcomes of prostatic cancer, which is the most common tumour found in men. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)



Book Reviews

This excellent book is a carefully-edited compilation of 15 chapters, six covering benign prostatic hyperplasia, one on prostatitis and nine covering adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Each chapter is written by at least one urologist with contributions from radiologists and an oncologist, most working in the UK. The book reads easily and is well-illustrated. It discusses causes, diagnosis and surgical and non-surgical management of these conditions. The book is up to date, well-referenced (quoting studies to 2013) and clinically-relevant. The chapter covering diagnostic imaging of prostate cancer, for example, focuses on the highly topical development of multi-parametric MRI and fusion targeting of biopsies and is illustrated with 28 figures. The book would be valuable as a reference for urological resident/trainees studying to pass Boards or FRCS (urol.) examinations and for practising urologists. - Reviewed by Dr. Simon Brewster, Urological Surgeon, Churchill Hospital, Oxford

This book has also been reviewed by John M. Fitzpatrick, MCh, FRCSI, FEBU, FCS(Urol)SA, FRCSGlas,FRCS, Head of Research, Irish Cancer Society, Professor of Surgery Emeritus, University College Dublin. To read the review, click here.
