Hyperthermia (therapeutic hyperthermia) is the medical, targeted application of heat to tumor tissue. It may increase the efficacy of chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer.
Hyperthermia is a targeted application of heat. The temperature should be between 40 and 45 degrees Celsius. It is mainly used in cancer as an adjunctive therapy together with a chemo- or radiotherapy.
There are a total of three different procedures:
Local hyperthermia. Local hyperthermia uses special needle-shaped probes to heat tissue at a specific location with electromagnetic waves. It is particularly suitable for so-called superficial cancers such as breast cancer or metastasis directly under the skin.
Regional hyperthermia. It works in a similar way to local hyperthermia, but regional hyperthermia can also reach deeper tumors (for example, in rectal cancer).
Whole body hyperthermia. For this, the entire body is heated to 42 degrees Celsius for 60 minutes. The doctor also uses special probes for this purpose.
The hyperthermia is performed by specially trained physicians (radiotherapist / radio oncologist) in specialized centers. Before beginning treatment, your doctor will discuss with you in detail. He explains to you about the risks and side effects of hyperthermia, discusses your medical history and examines you in detail.
The hyperthermia is already possible at a price from €100. Please send us your inquiry with a current x-ray image to get a detailed estimate cost.
