Hyperthermia for breast cancer

Advantages of hyperthermia for breast cancer

Breast cancer hyperthermia helps make breast cancer cells more vulnerable to the effects of other treatments, like breast cancer radiation therapy and certain chemotherapy drugs.

Our radiation oncologists typically uses hyperthermia to treat superficial breast tumors located within a few centimeters from the surface of the body.

Hyperthermia is also a promising option if you have advanced or recurrent breast cancer, as the treatment may help to improve your quality of life after breast cancer radiation therapy.
