Facing the Tiger : a Survivorship Guide for Men with Prostate Cancer and Their Partners 2nd Ed.
by Suzanne Chambers




Overview -
"As the son of a prostate cancer survivor, and a father facing the same risk, I recommend this book to you. It is a powerful reminder that the future is always uncertain, but you're not alone in the struggle." - Foreword by Matt Hayden AM It's tough living with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. While the disease has one of the highest survival rates of any cancer, the side-effects of treatment can be life-long and take a heavy toll on men's mental health. Of the more than 3.7million men globally who are living in the aftermath of a diagnosis, many will experience anxiety and depression, sometimes long-term. Not all will seek help for their mental health needs. So too for those who know them and love them - life is often never the same. This book will give you practical strategies to manage stress and anxiety, improve health and wellbeing, navigate tough challenges, and to find a sense of ease about the situation in which you find yourself. Written by one of the world's foremost experts in the psychology of cancer, it is structured so that you can choose whatever chapter seems most relevant to your present situation. First released in 2013, it has been updated with new contributions and additional chapters for this new edition. The book shares personal stories and insights from men and their partners in plain-speaking style, offering emotional comfort and inspiration. While your experience of prostate cancer is uniquely your own, Facing the Tiger reveals the wisdom of others who have already walked the path. Extract: Prostate cancer is now the most prevalent male cancer in the world, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer. In fact, if you take into account all cancers for both men and women it is the third most prevalent cancer. In the US alone in 2020 it is estimated that over 191,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The aim of this book is to provide a map to help you see a way through this difficulty and find a path that helps you to regain a sense of ease about the situation in which you have found yourself, and the way the world looks to you now. This is not a guide book about treatment options and will not give any medical advice. Your doctor who knows your medical circumstances is always your first port of call. This book is about suggesting different perspectives on where you are now, where you would like to be as you move forward in your cancer journey, and proven strategies that might help you get there. You may even find these techniques helpful in other aspects of your life and should feel free to apply them if you think they seem to be relevant.
