Armpit Cancer

Hyperthermia Cancer Institute – Los Angeles

axillaArmpit cancer refers to cancer of the axillary lymph nodes. The axilla (also known as the armpit or underarm) is the area on the human body directly under the joint where the arm connects to the shoulder. The axillary lymph nodes are tiny organs located in this region that are involved in the immune response. Because of this close proximity to the breasts, cancer in the breasts frequently spreads to the axillary lymph nodes. At our hyperthermia center, we combine hyperthermia with radiation therapy as cancer treatment for the axilla.
