Has anyone had radio surgery mole removal?
radiosurgery is a medical procedure which allows non-invasive treatment of benign and malignant conditions, by means of directed beams of ionizing radiation. It is a relatively recent technique (1951), which is used to ablate, by means of a precise dosage of radiation, intracranial and extracranial tumors and other lesions that could be otherwise inaccessible or inadequate for open surgery. In more simple terms, when used for mole removal, the machine emits ultra-high frequency radio waves into the skin that affect the water within the mole cells, causing the mole to vaporise. The lesion can then easily be sent away to be tested for harmful cells or cancer of any kind. Radio surgery is our preferred method of mole removal as scarring is virtually non-existent and the mole heals over in a few days leaving little trace that the lesion was ever there.
