Focal therapy treatment for prostate cancer avoids side-effects

A non-invasive treatment for prostate cancer that prevents side-effects should be urgently introduced across the NHS to give thousands of men a better life, scientists say.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the UK, with about 48,500 new cases a year. It is usually treated with radiotherapy or surgery, which can have side-effects including sexual dysfunction and incontinence.

An alternative, focal therapy, has been heralded as the biggest advancement in treatment for decades. It is as effective as the commonly used treatments but does not cause the same side-effects, new research shows.
