I have known for over 8 years that PCa had showed its ugly self to me. After given the news by my urologist, since 1983( previously treated for kidney stones), he gave me the textbook "cut, radiation an poison" talk. My first question was "What would you do, Doc?" He said " If I were you, get several other opinions, but I"d watch it an do a check every year. You'll probably die with it, than from it." Since that time, he has retired an I have said NO to several other doctors that insisted on treatment immedietely. Forward to present: the gleason number changed from 3/3=6, 3/4=7 to spring 2018 4/3=7, I decided it was time to do something. I had been looking at HIFU then scheduled a single high dose brachytheropy but at the last minute cancelled when my research came across Radiologist Dr Dan Sperling in Delray Beach, Florida. His speciality is FLA (focal laser ablation) He said "if I can touch it to biopsy, I can touch it with laser an get rid of it. My out patient procedure lasted almost 3 hours on June 26. I go back in 6 months for a check-up. RF
