My uncle was just diagnosed with prostate cancer in march of this year. He had a PSA of 8.0. The tumor is confined to the R.prostate and there is no mets. He is interested in the HIFU procedure but reluctant to travel outside of the USA to have it done. I, as a RN, am aware that the procedure is not yet approved in the USA. I am new to this site. Can anyone shed some light on this procedure for me? The outcomes, side effects, etc. Also, is there anyone out there who have had the MRI- Guided Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy for early Prostate Cancer? It is Focal and directed only to the tumor. No surgery. Thanks.
