One Man's Life-Changing Diagnosis provides a comprehensive patient's eye view of the clinical, emotional, relational and spiritual experience of prostate cancer from the time of first symptoms to diagnosis to treatment and to living as survivor with an advanced cancer that can return at any time.

The book discusses everything that results from a diagnosis of prostate cancer, from relationships to sex to social networking to finding support groups. And it explores feelings - why some men feel free to talk openly while others remain silent and what that silence is about. It teaches strategies for coping with the often-inappropriate responses when the individual tells relatives, friends and acquaintances that he has prostate cancer.
