Breast Cancer treated with Chemotherapy and Oncothermia
The following is the clinical case of a 51 year old female patient. The diagnosis is infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the left breast. She was treated with chemotherapy, combined with oncothermia.
She presented in May 2016 with breast cancer, infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the left breast. Consequently, the MRI shows multiple and extensive irregular confluent foci. In addition, the cancer forms a mass measuring 79 mm x 52 mm x 58 mm extending to the nipple-areola complex with infiltration of the dermis.
In June 2016 she started chemotherapy with Paclitaxel and Trastuzumab. Subsequently, in August 2016, oncothermia treatment was started, with 60-minute sessions.
In October 2016 a breast MRI is performed for control, after the administration of 9 sessions of chemotherapy and 6 sessions of 60-minute oncothermia.
The result of the MRI shows disappearance of the tumour mass indicating a complete response to treatment.
Consequently, the patient refuses surgical treatment as there is no tumour mass and continues with radiological controls. In October 2018 the patient has shown no signs of recurrence.
