Prostate cancer patients are abundant with 200,000 new diagnoses per year and millions of men in the US alone living with prostate cancer. Due to the complexities of the disease and the many options that are available, prostate cancer patients tend to do more research into their disease than many other types of cancer patients.

A Primer on Prostate Cancer is an unbiased, easily understood and reader-friendly tool that patients rave about in their reviews on web bookseller sites, often mentioning that the book should be the first book a newly diagnosed man and his family read and that they appreciate the information in it.
