About Lung Cancer

The lung is the most common site for primary cancer worldwide, and smoking tobacco is the leading risk factor. Last year, the American Cancer Society estimated that approximately 213,380 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed, accounting for 15 percent of all new cancer cases. More Americans die each year from lung cancer than from breast, prostate and colorectal cancers combined.

About Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

During the procedure, an interventional radiologist guides a small needle through the skin into the tumor, generally by computed tomography (CT). Radiofrequency (electrical) energy is transmitted to the tip of the needle where it produces heat in the tissues. The dead tumor tissue shrinks and slowly forms a scar. At the same time, heat from radiofrequency energy closes small blood vessels and lessens the risk of bleeding. RFA usually causes little discomfort.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved RFA for the treatment of tumors in soft tissue that includes the lung.
