- Question from AMel: Why isn't radio frequency ablation more often used in combination with chemotherapy as a weapon, especially against triple-negative? Please address the particulars of RFA as a breast cancer weapon. It is used in colon cancer. What is the difference?
- Answers - Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. Radio frequency ablation is not a standard treatment for breast cancer. It is used in clinical trial settings, but as a standard therapy for breast cancer I would not put it in that list of treatments that would be considered standard of care in our current breast cancer armamentarium.
- George Sledge, M.D. I agree!
