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.
