C

Cancer is an uncontrolled proliferation of cells. This term is used for more than 200 different diseases in which abnormal cell (with abnormal chromosome from genetic change or damage) send wrong or different message from the one it should give. This cell grows rapidly, divides again and again without control and can invade adjacent tissues. It starts to form a lump which is called a malignant tumor. After many months, or years the lump can have a size that can be felt, seen on X ray or can cause pressure symptoms (pain, bleeding). For many of these cancers has no definite cause. If cancer is untreated can follow a fatal course.

Cancer mortality Rate = (Cancer Deaths / Population) × 100,000

Carcinomas are more specific forms of cancer.
The carrier frequency is 13.56 MHz. Our 13.56 MHz is also only a carrier, which has information to
transfer; the fractal modulation (time fractal fluctuation) helps to optimally select
between the malignant and healthy cells.
Cervical cancer is the second most common cause of death by cancer in women. 90-95% of cervical cancers contain human papilloma virus DNA which is sexually transmitted. Cervical cancer is caused by abnormal changes in either of these cell types in the cervix.
Cervix
Cervix is the lower portion of the uterus.
Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy involves the use of chemicals to treat disease. More specifically, it refers to the destruction of cancer cells.

Chemotherapy (often abbreviated to chemo and sometimes CTX or CTx) is a type of cancer treatment that uses one or more anti-cancer drugs (chemotherapeutic agents) as part of a standardized chemotherapy regimen. Chemotherapy may be given with a curative intent (which almost always involves combinations of drugs), or it may aim to prolong life or to reduce symptoms (palliative chemotherapy). Chemotherapy is one of the major categories of the medical discipline specifically devoted to pharmacotherapy for cancer, which is called medical oncology. 
Chemotherapy uses anticancer drugs to slow or stop the growth of rapidly dividing cancer cells in the body. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), our medical oncologists are experienced in delivering targeted, individualized chemotherapy while proactively managing side effects.

 

Childhood cancer
Cancer is the second common cause of death in children between the ages of one and 14. The tumors react differently to treatment. Hyperthermia treatments can be applied only patients aged 18-80 years.
Heat is more effective when combined with radiation. Many tumors are suspectible to hyperthermia and tumors can often be heated to higher temperatures than surrounding nomral tissues. Heat makes cells more sensitive to radiation by preventing them from repairing radiation damage. Hyperthermia and the other therapies are most effective if it is applied on the same day or the following day after the other treatments (chemotherapy, radiotherapy).
Heat und radiation work best together when the two treatments are given simultaneously or within an hour of each other.  (more at Combination of Hyperthermia therapy)
All tumors disappear.
A CT (Computerized tomography) scan is able to create a cross-section images of the body. This machine may show cancer or metastases earlier and more accurately than other imaging methods.
