Interventional Cryoablation to treat Kidney Cancer?

I had a CT scan that shows a 3cm mass on my kidney. The Urologist says that it is cancer and wants to remove my kidney. Through my internet research I ran across this new treatment which freezes the tumor and cancer if the mass is confined to the kidney. Has anyone heard of this treatment? Also how can a Dr. tell what stage your cancer is in without performing surgery?

Re: Interventional Cryoablation to treat Kidney Cancer?

I visited the Emory Invententional Radiology Department today for a consultation. After reviewing my CT/Scan, the Doctor informed me that I would not make a good candidate for freezing (cryoblation) of my kidney mass, because it was too close to the blood supply for my kidney. I was hopeful, but now it looks like I will have to have the kidney removed. Others who read this post my want to look into this treatment prior to removing your kidney. [url][/url]
