New Cancer Treatment Cooks Tumors to Death

(WGHP) - There's a new high-tech cancer treatment that literally cooks tumors away. Rich DeMuro gets the inside scoop on this groundbreaking procedure and how this minimally-invasive treatment gets patients in and out of the hospital on the same day.

Cedar Sinai has found a way to treat health concerns such as fibroids, cancer and strokes without surgery. New technology breakthroughs have been made through small incisions that almost microscopic. It creates less of a concern of complications like pain, blood loss, scaring, and of course a faster recovery time so you can get back to work and go on with life. It is called

Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) which in other words means cooking tumors. No, we are not having tumors for dinner! RFA is the process where an ablation needle enters the tumor with assistance from an ultrasound machine that heats up to 140 degrees. The cancerous cells shrink and disappear.

RFA is a great alternative to surgery and often times removes cancerous tumors that normal surgery couldn’t even do. All it takes is twenty minutes of your time and you are out of the hospital as if nothing had happened.
