A revolutionary prostate cancer treatment which avoids harming men’s sexual performance could soon be available on the NHS.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound kills the tumour with heat without damaging healthy tissue around it.
In an NHS trial led by University College Hospital, London, 625 men were treated. After five years 93% were cancer-free.
Only 15% had erectile problems compared with 30 to 60% following surgery.
The results were revealed to the European Association of Urology in Munich.
