I've been reading about the success of Percutaneous Cryoablation in the treatment of RCC . Everything I've read so far says it is and has been limited to tumors up to 7 cm. in diameter. The reason given is that the "ice ball" might damage organs adjacent to the tumor . My question is : is it possible the treatment can be done in stages on larger tumors ? That is, destroy a large portion of the large tumor that is not impinging on other abdominal organs with the PC and address the remainder with other treatments.
