Radiofrequency Ablation FAQ
Is Radiofrequency Ablation painful?
Radiofrequency ablation is generally well-tolerated, and does not typically cause any serious pain after the treatment. There is a very low risk of bleeding or infection after the treatment as well as a low risk of injury to the gallbladder or bile ducts.

For how many days should I stay in the hospital?
Most patients will remain in the hospital for 24 or 48 hours following the procedure.
Am I a good candidate for tumor ablation?
In most instances this treatment is more suitable for patients with four or fewer tumors and tumor sizes should be less than two and one half inches in diameter. Being mostly liver, several types of cancer can be treated with tumor ablation including liver, kidney, and lung cancer. Oncologist, surgical oncologist and interventional radiologist consult to each other before deciding what is more suitable for the patient.
Who will interpret my results?
Your results will be reviewed with a CT or MR scan one month after the ablation. Success of the treatment will be evaluated according to whether the tumor is destroyed or shrink in size.
If the operation is unsuccessful, can I have another session of RFA?
Sometimes tumors adjacent to flowing blood prevents sufficient temperatures to be generated required to destroy the entire tumor. If the first application fails to destroy all of the tumor, the procedure may be repeated. Since the procedure destroys very little normal liver, it is safe to repeat the procedure until the desired result is obtained.
