About the offer

Ablation is the treatment method that uses various physical (radiofrequency, microwaves, lasers, etc. ) and chemical factors. Regarding cancer treatment, ablation might destroy tumors directly or obliterate arteries that deliver blood and nutrients into the tumor. This therapy is considered minimally invasive, as it doesn’t require severe damage to health tissues (e. g. , cuts and incisions). Adrenal cancer also might be treated with ablation. Ablation will help save the adrenal gland and mainly affect only the tumor. So, it’s an excellent method for patients with only one adrenal gland. Before the ablation, oncologists need more information about the tumor and cancer features. It will help to pick up the best method of ablation and plan the treatment process to achieve the best possible results while avoiding any adverse effects. Before starting the ablation procedure, patients must undergo a short preparation procedure. The procedure is done under general anesthesia, but local anesthesia also might be used as an alternative if the patient prefers it. Interventional radiologists reach the tumor via an intracutaneous puncture or the nearest blood vessels and with a small device. Next, they activate the device and damage the cancer lesions or the tumor’s blood vessels. The best method of adrenal cancer ablation remains a matter of discussion. In the literature, you can find successful cases of adrenal cancer with microwave, cryo, and radiofrequency ablation.
