Can radiofrequency ablation (RFA) help with larger thyroid nodules?
Without question, RFA is a good option for some people with larger thyroid nodules or cancerous nodules. At the same time, you need to consider the associated risks.
Today I’m discussing the primary considerations you’ll want to be aware of if you’re thinking about RFA and how it compares as an alternative to thyroid surgery. I’m starting with an article by UCLA Health and sharing a few research articles that show the benefits and potential downsides.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
What is radiofrequency ablation?Indications and contraindications to radiofrequency ablationWhat to expect from the RFA procedureImportant differences between radiofrequency ablation and thyroid surgeryHighlights of research studies on radiofrequency ablationOverview of the primary considerations for getting radiofrequency ablation
As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
