New Ways to Cure Breast Cancer

Doctors have found a new way to kill breast cancer cells that is by 'cooking' them and this will only take a few minutes. This process uses electricity to tumor in ensuring scale 70-90 Celsius.

In this study, the cancer cells can be shut down within 10 minutes, after which the patient can go home or back to work.

Treatment known as Preferential Radio-Frequency Ablation and in the treatment of patients only need a local anesthetic is given spearheaded by a physician at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Dr. Karin Leifland, Radiologists are overseeing the study, said that this technology can form the alternative treatment other than surgery in patients with early-stage breast cancer.

The same and can be used for treating bone cancer, kidney and liver.

Based on the description of Dr. Leifland, how the action is like a boiled egg. Tumor heated to a certain temperature that makes the cancer cells die and without damaging other tissues in the surrounding areas. The doctor uses a needle-shaped electrode and inserted into the middle of the breast tumor patients, and the flow of electricity in
conductivity through the electrodes to heat the tumor, killing the tumor and not damage surrounding the tumor.

Treatment Preferential Radio-Frequency Ablation may be used for female patients who had tumors less than 2 cm in size and shape just a small bump.

After this treatment, patients were asked to check the MRI, and ultrasound mamographi after 1, 6 and 12 months each year to ensure that the tumor is dead and the cancer had not spread.

More than 80 patients were included in this study demonstrated the effectiveness of such treatments. So far, patients were monitored up to 2 years old and none of them recurrence.

Within 5 years, this treatment can be a primary choice. Care 'heat' of cancer cells is not expensive, but checks will be undertaken later as MRI spend enough patients.

In this study, researchers still have one concern is whether when the tumor and surrounding tissue is not removed from the body there is a possibility that the cancer cells can spread still lagging. However, doctors hope the ongoing research, the researcher will find that the fear was not going to happen.
