Prostate cancer is the third most common type of cancer. It affects over 3 million men in the United States – most of them seniors. Over 90% of all cases are diagnosed in men over the age of 55. If you’re an aging man, prostate cancer is something you should be on the lookout for.
A minimally invasive ablative technique called high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a recently FDA-approved alternative to radiation or surgery for certain men with prostate cancer.
