The Black Wall Street Times Article On HIFU Prostate Cancer Treatment

First published in April this year, The Black Wall Street Times produced a compelling article on the story of three African American men who had successful treatment for their prostate cancer with HIFU Focal Therapy.

Reggie Dye, Thomas Newell, and Victory Murray all had treatment for their prostate cancer with HIFU Focal Therapy instead of more radical treatments like prostatectomy or radiotherapy. All were concerned about the side effects associated with these two procedures such as erectile dysfunction, penile shrinkage, and urinary incontinence.

“I’m very glad I chose HIFU for my prostate cancer treatment,” Murray, a NASA lead engineer whose team repaired Apollo 13 said. He went on to say, “I also consider myself lucky because I was diligent about receiving my annual physical, and I feel honoured to share my challenge with prostate cancer.”

He echoed the sentiment many of our patients when Murray mentioned, “I hope in some small way I can encourage someone else who may be reluctant to get the right treatment to become a prostate cancer survivor. I did with the help of my doctors and HIFU!”

The article also goes on to examine the research by the American Cancer Society. This shows that African American men are one and a half times more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than white men.

“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.”
