Focal therapy is an emerging approach for localized prostate cancer to reduce the morbidity associated with radical therapy, while maintaining cancer control. There are a number of focal therapy treatment strategies available, yet controversies remains, notably treatment paradigms based on the index lesion hypothesis, appropriate patient selection for focal therapy and how the efficacy of focal therapy should be evaluated. Controversies and emerging strategies that can influence treatment outcomes for the future will be discussed.
