Important as it is to understand the risk factors concerning prostate cancer, one should also know there are many myths having no link to this disease. Probably the most consistent myth or misconception is that having non-cancerous conditions of the prostate increase the risk of developing prostate cancer. NOT true! Granted, these non-cancerous conditions may cause symptoms not unlike those of prostate cancer and deserve full evaluated by a physician. However, there is no evidence that having BPH or prostatitis increases the risk for developing prostate cancer. Numerous research studies have shown the presence of BPH does not make a man any more or less likely to develop prostate cancer. Rest assured the growth of the prostate in men with BPH is unrelated to prostate cancer.
That being said however, for those of you who have received the diagnosis and need to understand more for your own piece of mind, this book is intended to educate, inform and aid peace of mind.
Drs. Seiden and Bilett have teamed up to give you the most pertinent information about prostate cancer and its affects on your body and your life. With caring and professionalism, they have collected the most relevant up-to-date data and explain very clearly what the tests are, what the results mean and what you need to do next if you are worried about your prostate or have received the diagnosis.
