Hyperthermia therapy can be used to reduce tumor size prior to surgery.
Minimize Preoperative Tumor Size & Quantity
Hyperthermia treatment may sometimes be suggested prior to surgery to reduce the tumor size and the amount of tumors in the body. With fewer cancerous tissue to remove, a less intensive surgery is possible. Less cancerous tissue also increases the surgeon’s chances of locating and excising all cancerous matter from the body during the actual operation.
