When people hear the word cancer, many immediately think about the different types of treatment such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. In today’s day and age, there are many other treatment options out there that range beyond traditional types of therapy. As new technology is constantly being developed, it is no surprise that there are many different types of treatments options out there for patients. In this report, I will review two therapies that are alternatives to the most common treatments for cancer. One of these therapies uses directed heat to kill cancer cells and the other therapy uses electric fields to disrupt cancer cells, in turn killing them as well. Many of these new treatments work in combination with chemotherapy or radiation but drastically increase overall survival comparatively. In my report I will focus on the two alternative cancer treatment options I mentioned and how they are currently used, how they work, their history, their side effects, their effectiveness, their cost, and their availability. Hyperthermia Therapy Hyperthermia therapy, also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy is the use of heat to damage and kill cancer cells (Cancer.gov). The high temperatures are thought to be able to shrink tumors with minimal damage to normal tissues. The mechanism of action is that high temperatures stop the cancer cell’s ability to repair DNA damage from radiation. The high temperatures specifically disable repair enzymes in the cell, cause cells to release heat shock proteins, and cause the cancer cells to be more sensitive to chemotherapy or radiation. The benefit of cells releasing heat shock proteins is that they cause a person’s immune system to be stimulated and causes their immune system to fight against the cancer cells. By disabling repair enzymes in the cell, the cancer cells then die effectively causing the tumor to shrink (T>GET ANSWER
