The most common prostate cancer treatments
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound
HIFU treatment aims to destroy cancerous cells thanks to focused ultrasounds. A probe enables the passage of ultrasounds to the rectum, increasing efficiency of treatment. The average duration of such surgery reaches between 1.5 and 2.5h. In some cases, a short stay at the hospital is required (1 or 2 days). After the surgery, a 1 or 2 week recovery process is needed which turns out to be a pivotal benefit compared to other treatments
