Thyroid Tumor and Nodule Ablation Methods 101 What Thyroid Conditions are Possible Indications for Ethanol or RFA Part 2 ?
Ask your physicians if your thyroid nodule or tumor even cancer is a possible candidate for non-surgical outpatient ablation treatment.
2. Mostly solid but some cystic component thyroid nodules. If there is enough cystic component that might relieve local symptoms or cosmetic effect ethanol can be used.
This is an emergency example of acute symptoms that was relieved by removing cyst fluid from this massive solid goiter nodules until she could have RFA treatment in Korea. She has severe resiticitve lung disease and is not a surgery candidate.
However, it is now shown that RFA can treat both the cyst and solid parts at one session.
Still RFA is not available in the USA. I can get you to an expert interventional specialist in Italy or Korea after my one visit consultation. The trip to be treated would be short 2 days just for the RFA ablation.
