The prostate, we talk about it

The prostate is the most secretive male organ, the one we dare not talk about, whereas more than a million men in France have urinary problems or pain. A new book answers all their questions.

Professor François Desgrandchamps is a urological surgeon and head of department at the Saint-Louis Hospital in Paris. In a book written in an alert and casual style, "The prostate, we talk about it", it tackles without any taboo what the prostate, what it serves, what happens in case of adenoma, cancer or of prostatitis and how to prevent the most troublesome diseases.

Its purpose is not only surgical, it addresses the prevention of course, with food, sports, lifestyle to keep his prostate healthy ... and sexuality. Filled with anecdotes and illustrated with pleasing drawings that are not only anatomical, his book teaches us a lot of things and not only about men.

Many practical tips

We learn that women have a residual prostate and that some can even ejaculate. More typically, Professor François Desgrandchamps explains how the prostate works and what happens when it does not work.

We learn that the prostate reflects somehow the physical form of men: "The larger the belly is round, the bigger the prostate". Full of aphorisms and practical advice, the book dramatizes much the problems of the prostate, without avoiding the subject of cancer, but putting it in perspective of his great experience. This book gives you many tips to implement daily to keep her prostate or that of her husband in good health.

Taboo the prostate? Secret and without charm? This book gives you many tips to implement daily to keep her prostate or that of her husband in good health. No taboo. Only solutions.
