ablation

[ab-lay-shun] also called ablative therapy (ab-lay-tive). Treatment to remove or destroy all or part of a cancer. It can also mean removing or stopping the function of an organ. For example, removing the ovaries or testicles or taking medicines that cause them to stop making their hormones would be called ablation. Besides surgery and drug treatment, other ways of ablating body tissues and tumors include using extreme heat, freezing, and chemicals.
