There are several trials looking at the treatment of prostate cancer.
Some men may be offered HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) or cryotherapy. These are newer treatments for prostate cancer. They are usually only considered for men with early prostate cancer, but they may be offered to men with locally advanced disease as part of a clinical trial.
Your doctor can discuss whether these treatments would be suitable for you and how you can find a participating hospital.
