Conquering Bladder and Prostate Problems is a valuable tool to help readers make informed judgments and will set them on the path to a healthier and more comfortable life.

Excerpt

This is a book written for people who have urinary bladder and prostate problems -- people who urinate too often, who plan their daily activities around the availability of a bathroom; men with prostate problems; women with incontinence who wet their clothes without warning; and people with bladder pain.

The chances are that you have no idea how your bladder or prostate really works. You may question why you urinate so much, or why you lose control of your urine. You may experience pain in your bladder or your prostate (or what you think is your bladder or prostate), but not know what kind of a doctor to see, or what to expect, or what to ask.

The purpose of this book is to answer all these questions and many more.

HOW TO READ THIS BOOK

Not everyone will want, or even need, to read this book from start to finish. For example, if you are a woman you may not be interested in how the prostate works. If you have already been diagnosed with a bladder problem you may not be interested in diagnosis, but only in treatment options. That is why each chapter is designed to be a self-contained unit. You don't have to read the preceding chapters to understand the current one. However, this necessitates some repetition. Whenever you come across something that needs a little more explanation, you may be referred back to the original chapter where that topic was discussed in more detail. If you see a word that you don't recognize, look it up in the glossary.
