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.
