Prostate Cancer and You
Prostate cancer is the leading cancer in men in the western world. It is estimated that 38.7 million men suffer from its effects today and more men will be diagnosed with it in the years to come.
Early detection of the disease is critical. Studies have proven that prostate cancer found in its infancy can be cured in more than 9 out of 10 men. Speak to your doctor about getting tested.
Many options are available to treat prostate cancer. They include surgery, radiotherapy, cryotherapy and brachytherapy. For the most part, these options are invasive and give rise to radical side effects like radiation sickness, impotency, urinary incontinence and severe pain in the pelvic area.
Ablatherm HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that is done on an out-patient basis and has fewer and less radical side effects than other therapies available.
In addition to all this, HIFU treatments can be repeated. Unlike some other treatments, HIFU is still beneficial in its effectiveness even after the procedure has been done on a patient before.
A Cure is Possible
If your cancer is confined to the prostate gland and has not grown into the surrounding tissue, Ablatherm HIFU can likely eradicate it completely. Studies have shown a cure rate in excess of 93% with adverse side effects in less than 50% of patients treated.
Patients from around the world have benefited from the care at the Maple Leaf Clinic, in the Cleveland Clinic Canada in Toronto. Learn more about the HIFU treatment and why it is increasing in popularity.
