Thank you for finding that, it must have been a typo in the report as I typed what it said. It's a bit puzzeling (to me at least) because the PSMA scan I had is specifically designed to show PCa cells so that is something I wil seek clarification on.
As regards the area of PCa shown in the Prostate, I have looked back at the template report of 2015 and the one area that was found and treated with HIFU. This was described as being at the left posterior base whereas the latest scan points to cancer in the apex so a different part of the Prostate. So it would seem the HIFU may have successfully treated the area previously identified and it is now in a new area, either missed in the template biopsy and scans or newly grown.
It occurs to me that the newly identified cancer area in the Prostate could be treated in several ways possibly, maybe by further HIFU, Cryotherapy, further radiation or even surgery, assuming one of the few surgeons who do this could be found. But I do not favour surgery now anyway because I was told it would almost certainly result in permanent incontinence.
When I was diagnosed in 2007, the surgeon said he would remove my Prostate if I wished but doubted he could get all the cancer, so advised RT instead. Sometimes I wish I had had the surgery then and in need the additional RT as it might have prevented what is likely to be a 3rd onslaught on the Prostate. Water under the bridge of course.
