Cryotherapy Qs

Postby hopeinGod2 » Tue Jul 12, 2022 3:44 pm

... for lung lesion, now grown to 1.6. x 1.4 cm as of last week's CT-scan.

1. Does all cryo preserve the tumor in an ice ball so that it can be biopsied? Or is is destroyed in the process?
2. Any recommendation for an good interventional radiologist on the East Coast? I am in FL.

Hi hopeinGod2,

I was wondering if you pursued the cyroablation? and if so, was it successful? I'm about to ask our dr about this. It's not available where we live but hoping to travel if it could be an option for us.
