@semeon .. the following was the conclusion of a NIH study on FLA treatment… I was not offered or was I explained any of the alternate treatments..

"Focal therapy remains a nascent field largely comprising single center cohorts with little long-term data. Our current post-focal therapy surveillance consensus recommendations represent the synthesis of the best available evidence as well as expert opinion. Further work is necessary to define the most oncologically safe and cost-effective way of following patients after focal therapy."

Yes there are many alternatives I choose FLA primarily for 2 reasons. The first it’s the least invasive that I know of. Second when I contacts Dr Sperling’s clinic they were the only people who got back to me after checking with their patients and gave the names of 4 people who had the treatment and willing to provide a reference. Absolutely no one else shared references. That in itself told me something.
