Cancer in Kidney Transplant Patients – Occurrence Frequency & Treatment Options 

Kidney disease, Chronic kidney disease ckd, Doctor with human model to study and treat in hospital.

Many kidney transplant patients are overcoming the immediate threat of kidney disease only to face the challenge of a cancer diagnosis. This has many implications but for those who face kidney cancer in their transplanted kidney, it’s essential to find a suitable treatment.  For a kidney recipient who has only one kidney, cryoablation offers a […]

Is cryo-immunology the next frontier for cryoablation? 

Cryoablation represents a frontier in minimally invasive cancer treatment, offering a novel approach to the destruction of both benign and malignant tumors. This procedure leverages extreme cold, applied directly to the tumor site, to induce cell death without the need for traditional surgical removal. The appeal of cryoablation lies in its simplicity and the reduced […]

Breast Fibroadenoma Management: Treatment Without Surgery

Breast Fibroadenoma

Statistics reveal that fibroadenomas are one of the most prevalent breast conditions, affecting approximately 10% of women at some point in their lives. Yet, available treatment options for these non-cancerous breast tumors have traditionally been limited and often involve invasive surgery, leading to a need for more effective and less invasive treatment options.  In this […]

Cryoablation for Breast Cancer – Evidence to date

Cryoablation for breast cancer

Cryoablation, the use of extreme cold to destroy tumors by freezing, is emerging as an innovative treatment for breast cancer*, a disease that impacts approximately one in eight women in their lifetime. Current standards of breast cancer treatment can involve surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy. As a minimally invasive treatment compared to […]

Liquid Nitrogen Cryoablation – Advancing the Frontiers of Tumor Cryoablation

liquid nitrogen cryablation icecure

The medical world is increasingly embracing cryotherapy for tumor treatment, but not all cryoablation treatments are created equal. Liquid nitrogen (LN2) cryoablation technology, the coldest of the cryogens, is taking the stage for more effective treatment and outcomes. Cryoablation has become an established method of therapy in the corridors of oncology, enabling minimally invasive treatment […]

Interventional oncology: a minimally invasive way to target cancer

The development of new and more effective cancer treatments is breaking previous limitations and providing clinicians with new and more capable tools to fight the disease. The traditional pillars of cancer treatment have been surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Now cancer patients have the benefit of a fourth pillar, interventional oncology (IO), to diversify and personalize […]

When You Should Consider Lung Cryoablation for Treating Cancer

Cryoablation is a common minimally-invasive and effective procedure now adopted to treat a wide variety of benign and malignant tumors.  In recent years, cryoablation is being adopted as the treatment of small lung tumors that are medically inoperable.   How common is lung cancer in 2022?  Lung cancer (both small cell and non-small cell) is the […]

Cryoablation Cancer Therapy – How Does Tumor Freezing Work?

How does cryoablation work - 5 mechanisms of action

Cryoablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy cancerous cells. It is a safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of benign and malignant tumors, including breast, lung, kidney, liver, bone, and many other lesions.  Yet how does cryoablation work and what happens during “tumor freezing” that destroys […]
