What is Focal Treatment for Prostate Cancer?

In the next 10 years alone, a staggering 500,000 men will receive a new prostate cancer diagnosis in the UK.  Up to 160,000 of these men will have low to medium grade, treatable cancer and could benefit from newer, cutting edge, minimally invasive treatments, called focal therapy.   BUT, incredibly, right now, almost all of those men will only be offered the same invasive, lifestyle-changing treatments as men with advanced cancers.

Focal therapy uses the very latest technology to treat early-stage cancer cells without harming surrounding tissue and organs.  This means minimal side effects so these men can continue their lives after prostate cancer with normal lifestyle functionality.  More invasive treatments will usually lead to incontinence and erectile dysfunction, the chances of which are dramatically reduced with focal treatments. 

The fact that right now less than 5% of men who would benefit from these treatments will actually get them is unbelievable, and just shouldn’t be happening! So please help Prost8 to change this now.  After all, it could be you or a loved one who is the next ‘1 in 8’ so make sure that the best treatment options are ready and available, just in case…..
