The task of choosing the right prostate cancer treatment is daunting. It is further complicated by conflicting information the patient receives from physicians and the Internet. This book is written by a prostate cancer survivor who now runs an international prostate cancer support group. It’s about his journey and the important things he learned along the way. It is the book the author wishes had been available when he was diagnosed 6 years ago. It is intended to provide specific information for men who are at risk or have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. All major treatment options are examined and the pros and cons of each are summarized. A relatively new, non-invasive, highly effective treatment is highlighted. It is an option that cures cancer as well as any other option, but generally leaves the patient with a higher quality of life and fewer, if any, side effects. This book has been endorsed by several physicians as well as other highly respected people from... More > all walks of life.< Less
I finally found Bob's book after reading a few accounts that suggested the 'gold standard', which was surgery, or conventional radiation. But we all knew of those who came out of surgery with potency and urination side effects. I was fearful and depressed. But my experience was like so many others, I nearly cried when I learned that the side effects from proton radiation were almost nil..... And it was all true, Bob told it like it was. I completed 39 proton radiation treatments at UFPTI at Jacksonville in late 2008. I feel now like I never had a cancer. It was incredible but true. Read this book.... it will lift your spirits and give you the confidence to get through this critical time of life. Charles Coryn (PSA Feb 2011 - 0.84)
I've done a lot of research, and a lot of patient interviews, concerning the treatment of prostate cancer. I can't find anyone or anything that disputes any of the information in Marckini's book. I'm now completed 30 of 45 proton beam treatments for my prostate cancer, at Loma Linda University Medical Center. The same goes for the www.protonbob.com website. Bruce Bauldridge, 10/14/10.

"You Can Beat Prostate Cancer" I like to say "it isn't the fall the kills you, it's the sudden stop". Prostate cancer (PCa) is just like that. You have no symptoms and one day you simply receive the bad news - like the sudden stop. Most men know nothing about PCa. Having gone through all of this, I wish I would have had a resource as great as Bob Marckini's book! He walks you through the period of discovery, the psycho-social aspects, and the research and evaluation for treatment. He is openly honest and forthright about the nuances of what to expect. He gives you hope and he gives you the facts. In a word - Bob nailed it.
