I got a book today (ordered off Amazon) called "The Decision: Your prostate biopsy shows cancer...NOW WHAT?"
By Dr. John. C. McHugh
He is a practicing urologist, diagnosed at age 52. It chronicles both his experience in making his decision, and the experiences of his patients. Even describes in detail his battle with post-op incontinence (he had robotic DaVinci surgery). It's an easy read and wonderful for anyone just diagnosed. Copyright date is 2009 so it has new information. A little thin though, in its section on HIFU.
I highly recommend it. He interlaces some humor as well and its nice to get perspective both from a doctor and a patient, all rolled into one.
