Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

A process which uses heat made by radio waves to kill cancer cells. RFA is given using a probe (electrode) that is injected through the skin into the tumor. The electrical current from the probe heats the cancer cells to high temperatures, which destroys them.
