My surgeon told me that I would need to undergo an ablation to remove a tumor which he had found on my lung. I could opt for a non-invasive ablation, which would eliminate the tumor without having to cut into my body. I could also choose the surgical cutting out or physical ablation, in which the surgeon would open my chest cavity to have the tumor extracted.
Quiz: When might a person require an ablation?
- When they have tissue that is diseased and needs to be removed from their body.
- When they have a broken tooth that needs to be repaired through surgery.
- When they have stomach pains and need a test to determine what’s causing them.
