CANCERS WE TREAT
HYPERTHERMIA TREATMENT IN DIFFERENT CANCERS TYPES AT DIFFERENT STAGES
Hyperthermia is often indicated when you have a recurrence in a previously irradiated region, when you have exhausted all other treatment options, or if you have a tumour that is known to be particularly stubborn in responding to treatment.
Hyperthermia has been investigated for the management of various types of tumours, including tumours of the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, liver, lung, head and neck, brain, cervix, and prostate, as well as on melanomas, and sarcomas. If you have one of these cancers, you may benefit from hyperthermia treatments. This is however not an exhaustive list and there are other types of cancers which can be treated.
