Stage 1

In stage 1 prostate cancer, the cancer is confined to a small area of the prostate. Stage 1 cancers usually grow slowly and may never lead to symptoms. Treatment recommendations will vary, depending on the age and health of the individual. Men with stage 1 typically have an excellent prognosis and a very high survival rate.

Stage 1 prostate cancer is characterized by:

  • PSA level lower than 10
  • Gleason score of 6 or lower
  • Cancer found in less than one-half of one lobe of the prostate

Treatment options for stage 1 prostate cancer may include:

  • Watchful waiting
  • Radical prostatectomy (surgical removal of the prostate)
  • Radiation therapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • HIFU

The survival rate for stage 1 is very high. Almost 100% of prostate cancer patients diagnosed with stage 1 survive, according to the American Cancer Society.

Why Sonablate?


The Sonablate system incorporates customized treatment and safety technologies in an effort to strike a balance that has been difficult to achieve in prostate cancer treatment—increasing disease control capabilities while decreasing quality-of-life side effect risks.

A Sonablate HIFU physician can completely customize a patient's treatment plan based on real-time tissue response, tissue density and location of vital structures. Competitive devices are limited to three pre-set power levels: primary, repeat HIFU and salvage (post radiation treatment), no patient receives a customized treatment based on their personal anatomy.
