Ascending colon cancer treated with Oncothermia and Chemotherapy

The following is the clinical case of a 63-year-old male patient. The diagnosis is ascending colon cancer with liver metastases. He was treated with chemotherapy, combined with oncothermia.


In November 2016, he presented with an ascending colon neoplasm. Consequently, he underwent a right hemicolectomy. As a result, the biopsy showed infiltrating adenocarcinoma.

Subsequently, in January 2017, she presented with elevated CEA. A CT scan revealed mesenteric and retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy. Multiple liver metastases were also observed, the largest measuring 35 mm.


Immediately, in February 2017, he started treatment with chemotherapy (FOLFOX) and 4 sessions of 90-minute oncothermia.

The CT scan of April 2017 showed resolution of the mesenteric and retroperitoneal adenopathies. There was also a significant decrease in the multiple liver metastases, the largest being 14 mm.


Finally a normalisation of tumour markers is detected.
