Anyone tried aquablation after a PC diagnosis?

I saw some vague statement about how aquablation isn’t indicated for men with prostate cancer but I don’t see why not. Seems less impactful than a traditional TURP and my little walnut is going to be stressed enough as it is from whatever we do with the cancer.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Prostate Cancer Support Group.

Look into TULSA procedure and see if it might be a choice


Hi @johnpca, while not specific to men with prostate cancer, you might find this discussion in the Men's Health support group useful:

Sounds like this might be a question for your urologist. Am I understanding that you have not yet started treatment for prostate cancer?


Thanks! And yes, that's correct, and it may be a while as I am hoping to stay with AS for as long as I can. It would be good to get some BPH symptoms addressed in the meantime, and as I am leaning toward radiation if things go badly on AS I think you have to do whatever you are going to do for BPH before RT. The reason I asked is that I saw a comment somewhere that aquabaltion may not be indicated for patients with PC, but I don't see why not. I am going to bring it up with my Uro, but wanted to know what others had heard from their providers as well.
