Is the HIFU treatment painful?

The treatment is not painful because it is done under loco-regional or general anaesthesia to avoid any movement of the patient. The post-treatment effects are not painful, but patients may feel a slight discomfort that dissipates after a few hours. As the treatment is non-invasive, there is no scarring and no burning sensation usually associated with radiotherapy.
