If you're experiencing symptoms of prostate cancer, it's important to speak to a doctor right away. If you are then or have already been diagnosed with the condition, HIFU treatment may be an appropriate option for you. A specialist consultant can evaluate your individual case and recommend the best treatment plan for your needs.
HIFU has been found to be most effective for treating prostate cancer, but it is also used for other types of cancer, such as breast, liver, pancreatic, and kidney cancer.
We also use the treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is a condition that's common in older men. It causes an enlarged prostate which can lead to symptoms including difficulty urinating, painful urination and erectile dysfunction. HIFU treatment can help reduce the prostate gland's size and ease the associated symptoms.
This page focuses on HIFU for prostate cancer, however if you would like to know about HIFU for a different condition, book an appointment with one of our specialists, or call us to get tailored advice.
To know whether this is the right choice for you, it's essential to consult with a specialist who can assess your individual needs and circumstances. Book a consultation with a specialist at Circle Health Group to learn more about whether HIFU treatment is right for you.
The first consultation is extremely important, as it helps us understand your unique situation and come up with a personalised treatment plan that works best for you. Our consultant will explain everything you need to know about HIFU treatment and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We take a comprehensive approach to deciding on the best treatment for you. This involves assessing the extent and location of your condition, as well as considering your general health and any other medical conditions you may have. Rest assured that you will be in good hands and receive the highest quality of care at Circle Health Group.
Before your operation, you'll usually be given a general anaesthetic to ensure you're comfortable during the procedure.
During the procedure, your consultant will use an ultrasound probe to direct high-frequency sound waves to the affected area. The heat created by the sound waves will destroy the targeted tissue. Your consultant will monitor the procedure closely to ensure that only the affected tissue is destroyed.
HIFU treatment is generally well-tolerated and not considered to be painful. You may experience some mild discomfort or a tingling sensation during the treatment, but this should not be severe. If you are concerned about discomfort, your consultant can discuss options for pain relief during the procedure.
Recovery times can vary, but you should expect to rest for a few days following the procedure. You may experience some discomfort, but pain medication can help manage this. Your consultant will provide specific guidance on how to care for yourself during the recovery period.
It's important to note that the likelihood of experiencing these complications is relatively low, and the vast majority of patients do not experience any complications at all.
