Brian Lynch HIFU Focal Therapy Patient Advocate

Brian Lynch – Patient Advocate

Brian has been involved in the world of prostate cancer diagnosis and focal therapy for over 10 years. He is an advocate both for the use of MRI and targeted biopsies for the precise diagnosis of prostate cancer and for the use of focal therapy wherever appropriate.

“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.”
