Misinformation on the Internet regarding Ablative Therapies for Prostate Cancer

In this article on the Pub Med website a study has been made into the misinformation on the internet regarding focal and ablative treatments in regards to the treatment of prostate cancer.

In the study the researchers used both Google and Bing search engines to assess the top 50 web results for the term ‘prostate cancer’ in addition to the terms ‘HIFU’ and ‘cryotherapy’.

The main conclusion was that there were ‘substantial inaccurate and incomplete information’ in the results and this needs to be addressed in order for independent patient web research could be conducted with a balanced and informed information set.

We concur entirely and are actively involved in ensuring that HIFU Focal Therapy treatmetn for prostate cancer is accurately portrayed on the web.

“HIFU is something people need to be aware of – I believe this treatment should be more widely available and more widely promoted. It wasn’t something suggested to me as a possibility by my urologist and I actually raised it myself. I would recommend HIFU and in fact have recommended it to others.”
