A method of treating tumors, both benign and malignant, such as carcinoma, sarcoma, cysts and avascular lesions, in animals, such as humans, by radio frequency heating at the location of the tumor in the host with intensity and duration sufficient to cause necrosis of the tumor tissue. Substantial damage to the surrounding normal tissue is avoided, as the surrounding normal tissue is cooled by blood flow which carries the heat away to dissipate such heat in those portions of the body not being subjected to heating.
