As a prostate cancer expert, it's my mission to help patients, survivors and their wives and partners cope with this disease and its treatment side effects. I focus on prostate cancer's medical, social and psychological factors in an informative, upbeat style that laymen can easily understand and relate to.Years ago, while earning my doctorate in gerontology, I learned that most men will get prostate cancer if they live long enough. Still, I hardly expected it would happen to me at the relatively young age of 62.Like many other patients, I struggled to understand this illness and my prostate cancer treatment options. Ultimately, I had a successful robotic surgery, where the total removal of my prostate cured me of the cancer. I was elated that I got through prostate cancer treatment with a minimum of pain and stress. But, like many prostate cancer survivors, I now have to cope with erectile dysfunction (ED) and a low libido.In my 30 years as a congregational rabbi, I often counseled people facing serious challenges like cancer. As I learned how to cope effectively with prostate cancer treatment and its side effects, I felt I had to share my experiences and insights with others. The result was my book, Conquer Prostate Cancer: How Medicine Faith, Love and Sex Can Renew Your Life, and its companion blog.
