Summary
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men after skin cancer. It is highly curable; only 11% of cancer deaths are due to prostate cancer. While prostate cancer is a couples' disease, there is much attention paid to the man with cancer and very little to the partner or spouse. Katz includes both the medical information necessary to understanding the disease and first hand accounts from cancer patients and survivors and their partners
