Essential Guide to Prostate Health – New Second Edition

Problems related to the prostate are among the most common reasons men visit their doctors. Often, this involves benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In fact, as many as half of the men between ages of 51 and 60 are affected by BPH. But sometimes the cause is more serious — each year there are over 220,000 new cases of prostate cancer.

The Mayo Clinic Essential Guide to Prostate Health is an informative guide to common prostate problems and is filled with practical strategies for maintaining prostate health. The experts at Mayo Clinic can help you evaluate treatment options, cope with cancer and discover ways to improve your quality of life. The topics covered include:

The debate over PSA testing

Latest imaging technology for the prostate

Full range of treatment options for prostatitis, BPH and prostate cancer

Managing treatment side effects, including incontinence and impotence


“Men no longer have to fear the worst when they learn they have a prostate problem. We have better treatments than ever, and better outcomes, too.”

— Lance A. Mynderse, M.D., Medical Editors 


The news in the Mayo Clinic Essential Guide to Prostate Health is improving the lives of men everywhere…

Advances in medical research, an explosion in sophisticated imaging technology, and new procedures have enabled a much earlier diagnosis of prostate disease.

These advances also mean more personalized treatment. So instead of one-size-fits- all methods, doctors can now offer the right treatment for the right patient at the right time in the right dose. These are truly the best of times for men’s health.

Our advances in prostate care also mean a better life after treatment — reduced recovery time, and fewer of the troublesome side effects so many men fear.

Prostate concerns often start out with changes in patterns of urination, difficulty with sexual function, or concern over hormonal levels. The Mayo Clinic Essential Guide to Prostate Health is an essential guide for every man.

Yours in good health,
