Hifu Side Effects
Like any other forms of treatment for cancer, HIFU also has numerous risk factors and HIFU side effects.
If you are undergoing HIFU treatment, the most common side effects that you will experience are the following:
Pain in the areas where treatment is being done such as the scrotum and rectal area
Difficulty in urinating
Production of protein in the urine or also known as Proteinuria
UTI or Urinary tract infection
Urine that contains blood or Hematuria
Prostate infection or Prostatitis
Reversing of semen during ejaculation where it goes back to the bladder rather than coming out from the penis, this is also called Retrograde Ejaculation
Painful and swollen scrotum or epididymitis
Hematospermia or blood in the fluid produced during ejaculation, semen.
Urine leak or urinary incontinence
There are also other HIFU side effects that some may experience such as:
Contracture on the bladder neck or urethral stricture
Rectal fistula or fissures on the walls of the rectum
Stool leakage or rectal incontinence
Possibility of acquiring the cancer even after treatment
Aside from these HIFU side effects, there are also other side effects that could be experienced which are brought by other factors involving the HIFU treatment such as:
Chronic pains, head ache, stomach ache, sore throat, and other side effects from the anesthesia as part of the HIFU treatment process
Discomfort when applying catheter which may also damage the inside of the bladder
Infection and bruising caused by drawing of blood to use in laboratory testing
Fatigue, the feeling of being weak after the HIFU treatment procedure
Some of the HIFU side effects that are mentioned above could also be a case to case basis and will depend on how the patient’s physical and emotional capability will respond during and after the treatment.hifuprostatecancertreatment.com
Prostatitis can make the prostate hypertrophy to shrink through physical therapy. the following points is to teach you how to shrink the prostate: paying more attention to the weather changes, cold often leads to illness. Therefore, patients must know the protection, prevent colds and upper respiratory tract infection, etc. absolutely avoiding alcohol drinking can make the prostate, and bladder neck hyperemia edema better and induce urinary retention. less spicy hot food, which can cause cancerpreventionblog.net

Abstract Introduction: Reapproximation of Denonvilliers' fascia adjacent to bladder neck to the rectourethralis, or posterior reconstruction (PR), has been suggested to improve continence in postprostatectomy patients. We examined the impact of the PR on postoperative urinary and other quality-of-life (QoL) outcomes in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP). Methods: We identified 89 patients who underwent RALP for prostate cancer between 2006 and 2009 by a single surgeon (R.G.), consented to participate in our prospective QoL study, which collects RAND-UCLA QoL and AUA symptom scores for all patients undergoing treatment for prostate cancer, and completed a baseline and a 3- or 6-month questionnaire. Of these, 31 patients had PR before vesicourethral anastomosis. We compared return to baseline function percentage at 3 and 6 months by PR group. Differences found in univariate analysis were further investigated using multiple linear regression models adjusting for demographics, clinical variables, and nerve-sparing status. Results: While most patients had both 3- and 6-month follow-up (n?=?74, 83%), sample size at 3 months was n?=?86 and at 6 months was n?=?77. Groups were comparable by preoperative characteristics, pathologic stage, nerve-sparing status, and baseline QoL/AUA symptom scores. At 3-months, there was a statistically significant improvement comparing PR to non-PR groups in return to baseline score for urinary bother (72% vs. 53%; p?=?0.008) and urinary function (64% vs. 50%; p?=?0.05), as well as change in absolute AUA symptom score (+0.2 vs. +3.8; p?=?0.005). Differences in urinary bother (+20%; 95% confidence interval 5%, 34%) and AUA symptom score (-2.8; 95% confidence interval, -5.4, -0.2) persisted after multivariate adjustment. Groups had similar scores for all parameters by 6 months postprostatectomy. Conclusions: PR in patients undergoing RALP has a significant impact on early return to baseline parameters relating to urinary bother, urinary function, and AUA symptom score.
Mind, pad test, medical professionals may also further select urodynamic, B-or X-ray examination, if necessary, for urethral cystoscopy, the main purpose is to understand and identify the severity of urinary incontinence due to bladder neck dysfunction and stress urinary incontinence caused by bladder instability caused by the urge incontinence, to determine the correct diagnosis, to www.sicheng.net
P Tiwari, A Tripathi, M Vijay, B Mitra, S Kumar, DK Pal, AK KunduIndian Journal of Cancer 2010 47(4):418-423Aims: Inverted papilloma (IP) is an uncommon benign neoplasm of the urinary tract. Its multiplicity, recurrence, and association with transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) leads to conflicting clinical conclusions regarding its biological behavior, and hence, the need for rigorous follow-up protocols. In this study, we review all cases of urinary bladder IP in our institution and determine the need for strict follow-up. Materials and Methods :0 We included consecutive patients from August 2004 to August 2008 with IP of the urinary bladder in this study who did not have prior or concurrent urothelial carcinoma. A single pathologist performed the histologic review. The patients had undergone strict a follow-up schedule every 6 months. Results: In our study of the 24 patients, the mean age at presentation was 53.5 (range 22-81) years. The mean follow-up period was 25.8 months (range 6-58 months). Of the 24 patients, 21 were men and 3 were women. No patient had a synchronous or previous bladder tumor. The most common presenting symptoms were macroscopic hematuria and dysuria. All were solitary tumors except one, most commonly found at the bladder neck and trigone. The average follow-up period was 2.5 years without any evidence of recurrence. Conclusions: We conclude that when diagnosed by strictly defined criteria, IP as benign urothelial neoplasm was with extremely low incidence of recurrence and good prognosis. It does not seem to be a risk factor for TCC, especially if located in the bladder. Therefore, a good transurethral resection is adequate therapy and follow-up protocol as rigorous as those for TCC may not be necessary. www.indianjcancer.com
