I dont want to seem negative, I did consider HIFU myself.
Untill I did more research to find out that if one cell of cancer is left behind,
it can and probably will come back. And given the area and the organs and
nerves and blood vessels and bladder, and, and, and....
The problem is after HIFU, Radiation, Cyrogeics, or any treatment that does
not remove the tumer, The entire area is scar tissue, and very few surgens
will do this operation.
I just wanted you to consider this before making a decision, This is one decision
you cant take back. But if after surgery it is nessacery to have more treatment
that option is still avalible. Read Dr Scardino's book before you make a decision.
