Radiation therapy, such as chemotherapy and radiology, has been in practice for patients with cancer. Alternatively, a new type of hyperthermia has been introduced in Chennai of India.
Excessive heat is exerted on the body, thereby boosting immune cells, which can kill cancer cells. Doctors say that it is possible to recover quickly.
Hyperthermia costs about 1/3 of the cost of chemotherapy and radiology. It is said to be beneficial for colon and breast cancer.
Doctors say the government is considering giving patients the treatment of hyperthermia, which is approved by the World Health Organization.
