Every Year Almost Two Hundred Thousand Confused and Frightened American Men are Tossed into a Prostate Cancer Cauldron Stirred by a sales force lobbying for a multibillion-dollar industry. In this flourishing business, the radical prostatectomy is still the most widely recommended treatment option. Yet according to a recent study, only one out of every forty-eight men undergoing radical treatment benefits with longer survival.

Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers Reports the Latest Thinking in Prostate Cancer Management: Low-Risk disease can be safely monitored with "active surveillance" and does not require immediate radical treatment. Intermediate-Risk disease requires either hormone therapy, radiation or surgery, with treatment selection based on quality-of-life considerations. And High-Risk prostate cancer is now being successfully treated with a combination of two or three therapies.

In a Unique Collaboration, Doctor and Patient Provide a New Perspective on Managing This Disease. Ralph Blum's surprisingly entertaining twenty-year journey and eventual decision to treat his cancer as a "chronic condition," together with Dr. Mark Scholz's presentation of the newest scientific advances, will liberate thousands of newly diagnosed men to pursue a noninvasive approach and thereby preserve normal sexual and urinary fuction.

Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers serves as a trustworthy and valuable guide for safely navigating the dangerous medical minefield of prostate cancer.
