Get right back to your life before diagnosis with a breast tumor ablation

Ablations can kill and destroy localized tumors within less than two hours!

Cryoablation. How it works

When is tumor ablation an option?

The ability to treat the tumor will depend on several factors including the type of tumor, location, size, and how well the tumor can be seen under image guidance. Thermal ablation can be used to treat metastatic breast tumor cancers, where cancer spreads to another part of the body, to eliminate pain and other symptoms. Clinical trials support the use of Breast Tumor Ablation to treat benign (non cancerous) breast tumors called fibroadenomas.

Isolated tumors targeted and destroyed Tumors are either exposed to liquid nitrogen then thawed then frozen again or destroyed and cooked by extreme heat for complete cancer cell death.

How long does a Breast Tumor Ablation procedure take?

A typical breast tumor ablation procedure takes between 1 to 2 hours - depending on the type and location of the tumor. However, many breast tumor procedures can take as little as 20 to 45 minutes.

Risks of Breast Tumor Ablation?

Breast Tumor Ablation is generally very safe and the risks involved are generally lower than compared to surgery. As with all medical procedures, there is a small risk of bleeding, infection, and accidental damage to nearby, healthy organs.

What happens to the tumors after Breast Tumor Ablation?

During thermal ablation, a cryogenic gas or microwave heat is used to destroy all breast tumor tissue within minutes, ultimately cutting off blood flow to the tumor. The dead tissue is slowly absorbed by the body's inflammatory cells. These cells engulf and remove unwanted cells in a process called phagocytosis. Over the next few weeks or even months, the breast tumor's dead tissue is replaced by a fibrous, collagenous scar.

Breast Tumor Ablation and Immunotherapy

Recent clinical studies have shown that combining Breast Tumor Ablation with immunotherapy can create an exciting and effective treatment strategy for breast tumor patients. In addition to destroying the tumor, Breast Tumor Ablation can also stimulate the patient's immune system to fight cancer. When used together, the two treatments can create a synergy (positive combination), or a successful tumor vaccine, that can eliminate all visible diseases. This new treatment strategy is currently being evaluated for its effectiveness particularly in breast tumor patients. Clinical evidence also suggests that Breast Tumor Ablation can control breast cancer without causing significant side effects such as a brutally disfiguring mastectomy.

Cancer is not a battle to be won or lost it's a call to live. So, the question is, "How do I want to live this life?" by, Joyce Bailey

Joyce L. Bailey was born on October 4, 1948. She grew up in a small town in Boston, Massachusetts. From day one she was a fiery strong willed little girl, climbing trees, picking on her little brother and rushing home for dinner when the street lights came on. When she turned 18years old she left the only home she ever knew, moved to New York City and became an American Airline flight attendant. She was determined to experience the world! Years passed and her next pursuit was to become a mother. I recall my mother saying, "the happiest days of my life were being pregnant with all 4 of you". My mom adored life! Every moment; the highs and the lows, in the end all those tiny gifts helped her appreciate the beauty of life on earth.
