Prostate cancer is the most common neoplasm in men and its
management is very complex, in terms of both diagnosis and
treatment. In recent years the value of multidisciplinary
management within a prostate cancer unit has been increasingly
recognized. Such a multidisciplinary approach within a specialized
unit involves a variety of specialists, including urologists,
oncologists, radiotherapists, radiologists and pathologists. This
book describes in detail the advantages of multidisciplinary
management of prostate cancer. It opens by explaining the nature of
the required multidisciplinary team and the potential benefits of
the prostate cancer unit as a structure for the delivery of
specialist multidisciplinary care. Epidemiological aspects favoring
multidisciplinary management are described and each element of care
within the context of the prostate cancer unit is then discussed;
also has been described the role of advanced imaging
(Multiparametric MRI) in the management of PCa. Early diagnosis,
risk classification, treatment decision making, surgery,
radiotherapy, medical therapies and health care support are all
fully considered. This book will be informative and enlightening
for all who are involved in the management of patients with
prostate cancer. "
