Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Benign Thyroid Nodule

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Benign Thyroid Nodule - Preparing for surgery

​Before the treatment, we will perform a clinical assessment for you, which include checking medical history, blood tests (clotting times, thyroid function and blood count) and ultrasound scan of the thyroid. Also, normally a biopsy (Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) or Core biopsy) would be performed to definitively confirm the diagnosis of a benign thyroid nodule. On the day of the procedure, you will be fasted for 6 hours prior to the time of the planned procedure. If you are on certain blood thinning medications, they may need to be stopped a few days prior to the procedure.
