Housecall for Health: Breakthrough Cancer Surgery
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has announced he has prostate cancer, but his age makes him far from a perfect candidate for surgery. And with the high risks of side effects that come with prostate cancer surgery for younger patients, researchers overseas have worked to develop a breakthrough new procedure to target and treat prostate cancer.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
British scientists have developed a new prostate cancer treatment that avoids any negative side effects. Conventional surgery leaves half of men impotent and 1/5 incontinent, making doctors advise men with slow-growing tumors not to have treatment.
But the new experimental procedure, called High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, sends a high-powered beam directly into tumors that kills cancer cells without affecting nearby tissue.
