Biggest news is thyroid tumor ablation gets a main stream use for treating the primary micro-papillary cancers INSIDE the thyroid gland  instead or surgery or observation.

Pitt  The decision to leave a cancer in the neck and do active surveillance is difficult for many patients and their families. That is why thyroid tumor ablation is a perfect fit those who dont want surgery or don’t want a cancer in the neck for years even after being told it is safe.

    Y. Luo, Y. Guang, Y. Zhang, M. Zhang, N. Li, J. Tang  Along with ethanol ablation PEI of cancer lymph nodes we have another treatment mode with radiofrequency ablation RFA. The field of Thyroid tumor ablation is expanding every day thanks to groups from Korea, China, Italy, and the USA.

    The field of thyroid tumor ablation is a growing area of interest to like mined endocrinologists who are willing to train in these procedures to decrease the number of unnecessary thyroid surgeries on benign and in some thyroid cancers.

    If you are interested in considering thyroid ablation as a patient or learning  Thyroid ablation as endocrinologist, call Matt at 310-393-8860 or thyroid.manager@protonmail.com.

    The future is bright for this new field now that we have two excellent non-surgical treatment methods for thyroid nodules,cysts and now primary and recurrent thyroid cancers.

    Young endocrinologists need to learn this as it is the best future for you to become a clinical thyroid ablation specialist for your area of the country.
