Which is why getting a prostate cancer diagnosis was devastating. “It was a shock when I went to my doctor and got the news,” he said. “I thought wait a minute? How can I have cancer?”

Parks and his oncologist decided the best treatment for him would be high intensity focused ultrasound, also known as HIFU.
