New Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer, the words alone strike fear in the hearts of men. Luckily, a new medical advance promises to make the treatment less harrowing. HIFU, high intensity focused ultrasound, is currently being successfully used in other countries around the globe to treat prostate cancer, and is now being evaluated in the United States by the FDA. During the FDA evaluation period you may be eligible for free HIFU for prostate cancer treatments.

HIFU treatments may be done on an outpatient basis.  There is no surgery involved, no risk of blood loss or infection, and best of all, according to the research (which began in the 1940’s), HIFU does not appear to accumulate in body tissue the way radiation does, which all but eliminates the chances of a patient suffering from impotence, incontinence, and/or diarrhea.

The high intensity ultrasound waves are intensely focused on the cancer, which erodes or disintegrates under the force of those waves and is removed from the body naturally as a waste product.  Because ultra sound is also an imaging technique, many current prostate cancer treatment HIFU devices allow the doctor to more effectively monitor the success of eac HIFU treatment.

If you or someone you love is suffering from prostate cancer, please click on one of the links above, read the informational articles on the HIFU website, and call Dr. Wolf at Burlington Urological Associates in North Carolina.  You may qualify for free medical treatment.

    • Well, Doug, it won’t be the first time that Quilly’s made medical history. Nor, I fear, can you claim this as a novelty of medical practice. The ka-CHING factor is already well known, and physicians everywhere use it to the great benefit of their financial advisors.

    • That’s right, Polona, the scourge of beer-guzzling, gridiron-watching couch potatoes everywhere. There’s a reason why the fitness gurus keep screaming at us to get the [deleted] out of our chairs and move.

      And, of course, we’re too circumspect on this blog to mention the world’s oldest profession.

  1. For Mr.G. it comes too late, he had surgery 7 years ago. But is OK so far. Once a year a check up and that’s it.
    I catched up on your posts until the hot water story ! That can only happen to you or maybe to me. I also have this kind of surprises.
    For the moment I am a littles distracted, I put my coffee mug in the bread box instead of the micro wave. No wonder it didn’t warm up !
