“Androgen deprivation therapy is the main treatment for locally advanced and metastatic prostate cancer. It is a very effective treatment, but it has major impact on many aspects of men’s health. Thousands of articles have been dedicated to that subject. This book distills these down and provides a comprehensive understanding and path forward for the many challenges associated with androgen deprivation therapy.”

– David Crawford, M.D., Professor of Urology, University of California San Diego

“As someone who has treated men with prostate cancer for over 25 years, I recognize the burden of care of the patients and their loved ones. This book provides excellent tips on how to deal with the disease. I have used prior versions for many years in my practice and wholly endorse this new version. It’s a must read!”

– Neil Fleshner, MD, Chair of Urology, University of Toronto Ontario, and Love Chair in Prostate Cancer Prevention, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto, Ontario

Androgen Deprivation Therapy is the only guide written exclusively about the side effects of hormone therapy. The authors have collaborated with the European Association of Urology to produce this specially revised new edition to serve men affected by ADT across the globe. This comprehensive workbook for prostate cancer patients and their loved ones is filled with practical advice from experts in the field. The book covers a wealth of strategies to help men cope with ADT and maintain a good quality of life while on this treatment. It is not only an informational manual, but a guide for both patients and partners about ways to make changes in their lives that can keep them healthy and positive when the patient is on ADT.

New to this Edition:

Updates on the primary drugs used to treat prostate cancer with tables for common brand names worldwide.
Updates on the physical side effects of ADT, such as hot flashes, weight gain, muscle loss and fatigue—plus management strategies.
Expanded information on exercise and nutrition for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Expanded information on the psychological and relational impact of ADT on both patients and their partners, with strategies to maintain intimacy despite reduced libido and difficulties with erections.
Expanded discussion on dealing with emotional side effects, such as mood swings and depression.
Exercises, activities, worksheets, and other tools to promote discussion and inspire behavioral changes that can reduce the burden of ADT.
Officially endorsed by the European Association of Urology and the Canadian Urological Association.
