This Third Edition of Men’s Health provides a comprehensive and authoritative reference source to urologists, andrologists, family practitioners, and all professionals dealing with the male patient who diagnose and treat males with a variety of health problems, such as prostate cancer, male osteoporosis, and testicular cancer. The new edition been completely reorganized into disease- and problem-based sections, to highlight important topics such as cancer and premature cardiovascular disease. There is also new material on some of the less frequently explored areas of men's health, such as Tourette's Syndrome, depression, and cosmetic surgery.


This book offers a valuable overview of topics related to men's health, which primary care physicians in a busy clinical practice can use for quick reviews. (Am Family Physician, of the first edition)

This book provides the male oriented specialist whether a cardiologist, urologist, or traumatologist with two valuable areas of expertise that are otherwise difficult to acquire. The first is an update on other male oriented specialties… The second and possibly more important reason why this book should be of use to those who advise men about their health is the information on maleness. (Br Med J, of the first edition)

This book is a landmark. It begins to define a field… The editors and authors of this book come from both sides of the Atlantic and from several specialties, yet the coverage is remarkably uniform and balanced. Basic anatomy and physiology have a comfortable place beside clinical and epidemiologic information. (New England J Medicine, of the first edition)
