One method using emanation was through. Particular is the case of melanoma, the most malignant skin disease, characterised to have low radiosensitivity.

Hippocrates ( BC) was the first to distinguish benign and malignant tumors. He believed that the human body contains four humors, or fluids - blood, mucus, yellow and black bile - and any imbalance leads to diseases. Due to its mechanism of action and neoplastic changes, including osteosarcomas, in rats following administration of radium dichloride, Xofigo may increase the risk of osteosarcoma or other secondary malignant neoplasms [see Nonclinical Toxicology].
