The SAFEST Way to Beat Prostate Cancer
When you’re diagnosed with prostate cancer, you can practically hear the surgeons sharpening their scalpels.
They just can’t WAIT to cut you open… either by hand, or with one of those fancy new robots.
Meanwhile, lots of guys who get prostate cancer surgery will tell you it was the worst decision of their lives.
It can ruin your ability to have sex… and leave you incontinent… for life.
Luckily, there’s a new option that’s gaining steam.
It’s PROVEN to destroy prostate tumors – but without all of the life-wrecking risks.
Treatments like surgery or radiation for prostate cancer are like using a hand grenade when what you really need is a sniper.
Sure, they may take out the cancer… but everything around it ends up as collateral damage.
And that’s too bad for you, because what’s “around” your prostate is the bladder, rectum, and urine passage, as well as plenty of nerves and muscles.
That’s why these treatments carry such a high risk of long-term problems with incontinence and erectile dysfunction.
That’s also what makes this new prostate cancer treatment — called high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) — such a great alternative.
HIFU delivers a high energy ultrasound beam directly into the prostate gland, where it can specifically target the prostate without impacting as much of the surrounding tissues.
The result is FAR fewer long-term side effects.
So while radiation and surgery increase the risk of incontinence by 5%-30% – -and increase the likelihood of sexual side effects by 30%-60% — the picture with HIFU is much different.
Only 2% of patients experienced incontinence, and only 15% experienced erectile dysfunction.
And here’s the best part…
According to the latest study published in European Urology, HIFU is JUST AS EFFECTIVE as surgery and radiation.
In fact, the 5-year-survival for all three treatments was 100%.
A 100% survival rate, with dramatically less risk of life-altering side effects? Now that’s a treatment I can feel comfortable recommending to my patients.
To a brighter day,
