Every man faces the danger of contracting prostate cancer at one time or another in his life, particularly after middle age. Detecting and destroying the cancer at an early stage of development is critical to the patient's full recovery.
In Making the Right Choice, four men describe their battles with prostate cancer and the different treatments that they each chose: radiation, watchful waiting, surgery or medication. Their doctors explain the benefits and disadvantages of each treatment, and the patients' partners talk about their own perspectives on the situation. Computer graphics demonstrate the functions of the prostate and the process of its treatment or removal. This program is designed to help men make an informed decision about which form of treatment to choose.
