HIFU for prostate cancer Q&A
Q | can all prostate cancers be treated with HIFU?
A | No.
- The cancer must be localized within the prostate with no spread to surrounding organs.
- The prostate must not be too large, as this will make complete treatment difficult to carry out.
- The rectal lining and anatomy must be normal. This will affect how the ultrasound probe is placed and how well it works during treatment.
