This article was originally published in Clinica
Sheldon Press, the London, UK publishers of the recent Coping with radiotherapy patient handbook, has just published The user's guide to the male body (Jim Pollard). The title, targeted primarily at consumers, aims to raise male awareness of health-related issues, from the perspectives of both prevention and primary healthcare, including the importance of screening and prompt access to healthcare when concerns arise. Coping with radiotherapy, by consultant oncologist Dr Terry Priestman, highlights the types of technology and their benefits, and aims to be a "reassuring book" on issues that range from the science and medicine involved, to maintaining everyday life while coping with side-effects.
