Radiofrequency cauterization is a medical procedure that uses a high-frequency electric current to heat and destroy tissue, typically used to stop bleeding or remove abnormal growths. It is commonly used in surgical procedures such as the removal of warts, polyps, and other benign growths, as well as in the treatment of certain types of cancer. The procedure is typically performed using a thin, needle-like electrode that is inserted into the tissue and heated to a high temperature, causing the cells to be destroyed. It is often a quick, low-risk procedure with minimal recovery time.
