Society Of Interventional Radiology - Cancer - Treatments (2410 words)
RFA typically treat cancers than cannot be removed by surgeons because of their size/location or because the patient is not healthy enough to have open surgery.
RFA is primarily used to treat cancer in the liver, but it is being studied for use in the kidney, adrenal glands, lung, bone and prostate.
Interventional radiology is playing a role in developing new techniques that may improve cancer treatment in the future, including the use of magnetic particles to draw cancer-killing agents into tumors; and the delivery of genetic material, called gene therapy, to fight or prevent cancers.
CancerQuest : Cancer Treatments : Introduction to Treatments (529 words)
The treatment given for cancer is highly variable and dependent on a number of factors including the type, location and amount of disease and the health status of the patient.
The treatments are designed to either directly kill/remove the cancer cells or to lead to their eventual death by depriving them of signals needed for cell division.
In cases in which the cancer is detected at an early stage, surgery may be sufficient to cure the patient by removing all cancerous cells.
