I have been reading about HIFU because a friend of ours is going to go to Canada and have that treatment. We had not heard of it before my husband had RP for the prostate cancer. It was completely contained in the prostate and it seems to me he would have been a good candidate for it. I have also been reading about the clinical trials going on in the USA. The treatment is not new, but just not approved by the FDA here. I just wonder if anyone on this discussion board had had the HIFU treatment. I will let you know how it turns out for our friend. The cost is a huge factor for many/most men with PC. And the distance from followup is another. But I think my husband would have seriously considered it if it had been offered as an option.
