Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer Book

Dr. Patrick Walsh’s Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer

Edward M. Schaeffer (Author), Janet Farrar Worthington (Author), and Patrick C. Walsh (Author)

The ultimate book on the No. 1 men’s disease in the world…should be in every man’s home.” –USA Today

Dr. Walsh is widely regarded as the nation’s finest prostate surgeon…Very current…thoroughgoing primer on the disease, full of accessible but detailed explanations.” –Washington Post

Comforting, encouraging…a must-read for women, men, and families…tells you everything you need to know.” –Elizabeth Dole


This new and revised guide covers every aspect of prostate cancer, from potential causes including diet to tests for diagnosis, curative treatment, and innovative means of controlling advanced stages of cancer.

As of 2022, an estimated 268,490 American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. A high percentage of those will relapse. But the good news is that more men are being cured of this disease than ever before.

In a new and completely revised 5th edition, this lifesaving guide offers a message of hope to every man facing this illness, and the people who love them. Prostate cancer is a different disease in every man–which means that the right treatment varies for each person. Public awareness for this disease has transformed treatment and opened up new avenues of research; rapid advances in knowledge are being translated in new recommendations for management. In this book, Dr. Walsh et. al. will address such issues as:

  • The genes involved in prostate cancer, genetic tests, and who should get them. 
  • The powerful effect of lifestyle changes to reduce pro-inflammatory and pro-insulin resistance environments, such as alcohol intake, physical activity, and BMI. 
  • What high-risk men (particularly African American men) need to know, and when to start screening. 
  • Treatment considerations for gay and bisexual men with localized prostate cancer.
  • New information on testing and imaging. 
  • Your post-treatment life; how to stay healthy after treatment and manage the side effects of medication, and also how to support caregivers. 
  • Advice and support for coping with your diagnosis and learning how to live life beyond prostate cancer

Available in paperback or Kindle.

“Janet has done it again! This easy-to-read witty book actually made me laugh out loud! If you’ve ever been in line at the grocery store, owned a dog, felt sleep-deprived, or craved Cap’n Crunch, you’ll surely relate to the author’s everyday-life observations. If you met the Worthington family in Janet’s first book, Bumble Creek Farm, you will be glad to know the more things change, the more they stay the same — more entertaining stories!” Carol Anne Wilson

Overview: It’s here, it’s happening, it’s now, it’s — not War and Peace! It’s just a happy little book. Sick of politics, strife, tension? I am, too! Life is short — not unlike this book — and it should be taken with a smile or two. It’s available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle.

Happy little snapshots of home and family, animals with attitude, life in a small town, and finding the funny when everything seems crazy.

Bumble Creek Farm

5.0 out of 5 stars

“Easy, Enjoyable Read” Steven Reszka May 7, 2012

“Bumble Creek Farm is touching, well-written, funny, and enjoyable book about a transitioning time in author Janet Farrar Worthington’s life. As Janet and her husband move to a farm, her sense of humor takes you through the learning curve of dealing with animals, children, construction workers and odd, but nice, neighbors. I started and finished the book on a rainy Saturday afternoon and found myself caught up in her world for a few hours. It was a pleasurable visit.”

Overview: Meet Mark and Janet and their menagerie: Two young kids and a baby on the way, horses, dogs and a llama, escape-prone sheep, offbeat neighbors, and various construction workers laboring to renovate their ramshackle farmhouse. A delightful true account, told with love and humor by award-winning writer Janet Farrar Worthington, of her young family’s riotous adventures on their own “Green Acres,” as two urban professionals “who had no idea whatsoever what we were doing” start a farm in beautiful Horse Oak, Virginia.
