Neoadjuvant Hyperthermia

foto di provetteWhen a tumor is too extensive to be removed immmediately, you may use chemotherapy before the surgery, in order to reduce the tumor mass.

This kind of treatment is called neoadjuvant chemotherapy and generally, the patient delivered to the surgeon after this treatment is much more manageable.

Hyperthermia can also be used as a neoadjuvant, and combined with chemotherapy or radiotherapy before surgery, can indeed contribute noticeably to the tumor mass reduction.
