CANCER TYPES REACTING POSITIVELY TO HYPERTHERMIA TREATMENT
HEAD + NECK CANCER
The most common types of cancer diagnosed in children ages 0 to 14 years are leukemias, brain and other central nervous system (CNS) tumors, and lymphomas.
A cancer of the colon or rectum, which may begin as non-cancerous polyps. Treatments include surgery to remove the cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
A cancerous or non-cancerous mass or growth of abnormal cells in the brain. Treatments include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
Melanoma is a cancer that develops from melanocytes, the skin cells that produce melanin pigment, which gives skin its color.
Cancer that begins in the organ lying behind the lower part of the stomach (pancreas). This type of cancer is often detected late, spreads rapidly and has a poor prognosis.

CANCER DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE AND NEITHER SHOULD TREATMENT
Please note that even if the cancer you are suffering from is not listed above, you may still benefit from hyperthermia as a supportive treatment.
