Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Benign Thyroid Nodule

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Benign Thyroid Nodule - Post-surgery care

​After the RFA procedure, a small dressing will be placed over the site of the needle puncture, which can be removed at home in 1-2 days. You may have mild neck bruising, discomfort, swelling or pain, which will resolve in a few days. You will be able to eat, drink or carry out daily activities normally. An outpatient appointment will be given to you for post procedure follow-up. An ultrasound scan of the thyroid will be performed in about 6 months to assess nodule size reduction following RFA.
