HIFU Treatment for Prostate Cancer

HIFU Treatment for Prostate Cancer

HIFU is a fundamentally changed new treatment for Prostate Cancer in its early stage wherein the cancer is still limited to the organ which is possible to be treated without radiations and without even having surgical incisions in the body. We have help many international patients to avail HIFU Treatment for Prostate Cancer at best Cancer Hospital India.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) in India is the procedure of focusing high intensity sound waves for creation of heat at a specific point-the focal point. With advanced technology, HIFU is used to kill target tissues during the procedure separately customized for every separate patient’s state of prostate cancer. When HIFU rays are conveyed to the focal point, the malignant tissues are killed without harming the tissues outside the focal point. HIFU method is basically used to heat and kill cancer cell in the prostate gland by using high frequency ultrasound waves.

HIFU is relatively an advanced method of treating cancer over other methods as this method involves heating only the tumors with precisely focused ultrasound which implies that men can be treated without even staying overnight at the hospital and completely avoiding the discomforting side effects that are associated with existing therapies.

A study in UK has discovered that HIFU offers ‘perfect’ results with no major side effects and safe from cancer 12 months post treatment in nine out of ten cases. Conventional therapies or radiotherapy can only offer the perfect result in only half of the cases currently. Experts have specially mentioned that the results obtained due to HIFU are ‘very encouraging’ and are a ‘paradigm’ shift in the treatment of cancer.

HIFU therapy in India minimally tends to spread Prostate Cancer

HIFU does not involve admitting patients for nights and is a general procedure performed under local anesthesia that is entirely free from radiations. As HIFU is not surgical, there is absolutely no loss of blood or incisions and brings recovery quickly. If need be, it can be repeated also and can also be done to save spreading of prostate cancer if other therapies fail. As HIFU therapy is a highly sterile process, the ultrasound energy does not cause any harm to any of the tissue in the periphery of the targeted focal point.

Advantages of HIFU therapy:

  • No loss of blood
  • Recovery is quick
  • It is a non surgical process
  • Free from radiations
  • No need of getting hospitalized

This is by far the most advanced technique which is highly apt for treating prostate cancer of low grade. It does not involve surgery, radiation-free, good control over cancer, minimal production of cancer. In fact, after HIFU therapy, the quality of life improves and some other advantages of HIFU therapy also includes quick resumption to erections and good control on urine.

Preparing for HIFU:

The doctor monitoring you will brief you about the preparations required for the procedure. Usually, HIFU is done in daytime under local anesthesia. This implies that you would be asleep during the entire procedure. If you would be on general anesthesia, you would be asked to obey certain fasting guidelines which mean, for about six hours, you would not be drinking or eating anything prior to HIFU therapy. Your doctor will explain you everything about what will happen prior, during, and post surgery and he will also clear about the pain you could experience. Here, you should take advantage of this opportunity and understand everything and put forth before the doctor your queries about the possible risks, benefits, and any other choices you could opt for instead of HIFU. This will automatically make you realize that this therapy is ideal for you and so you can willingly give your consent for the therapy.

What happens during HIFU?

It usually takes nearly three hours but the actual size of your prostate and the amount of cancer to be treated will decide the actual time of procedure. Your doctors will deliver a lubricated probe right into your rectum. During this procedure, the accurately focused UV waves raise the temperature of the focal point to 195 degrees in 2-3 seconds. This sudden heating kills the target tissues while not harming the surrounding tissue. The probe usually has a cooling balloon surrounding it to prevent the peripheral areas from high temperature.
