Have You Heard About HIFU? Why HIFU May Be Your Best Bet To Beat Prostate Cancer [PODCAST]
Have You Heard About HIFU? Why HIFU May Be Your Best Bet To Beat Prostate Cancer
Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men’s Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in urology care and the best urology humor out there.
In this segment, Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee talk about HIFU, or high intensity focused ultrasound, as a treatment for prostate cancer. This amazing procedure can target localized prostate cancer and oblate cancerous tissue while leaving the surrounding areas untouched. This approach minimizes the risks of incontinence and erectile dysfunction, which can be side effects of other prostate cancer treatments. Dr. Mistry explains that only prostates measuring 40 grams or less are eligible for HIFU, so it may be necessary to shrink the prostate using prostate artery embolization (PAE) before HIFU is performed. He also points out that urologists should offer you a range of treatment options for any issue or illness they diagnose, so if you have prostate cancer and aren’t offered HIFU, you may want to seek a second opinion. At NAU Urology Specialists, we are huge fans of the second opinion and will gladly point you in the direction of another provider if you want to do your research. We find that our patients come back to us time and time again because the level of care and expertise we offer is outstanding and our holistic approach to men’s wellness is so unique. If you or a loved one has a major urologic condition like prostate cancer and would like to learn more about their options, including HIFU, please give us a call today.
