Summary

In the United States, one of the most common cancers among men is of the prostate, with recent years showing a rapid increase in occurrence. Doctors predict that more than 220,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the U.S. this year, and more than 31,000 will die of the disease. Because early prostate cancer is seldom signaled by any symptoms, detection is extremely difficult without testing, making information on this and other cancers of the reproductive system extremely vital to men’s health. In The Encyclopedia of Men’s Reproductive Cancer, more than 400 entries cover prostate, testicular, and penile cancers (among the most dangerous forms of cancer in men) and explain statistics, prevention, symptoms, causes, treatments, and much more.
