Are there any side effects?

Hyperthermia therapy is non-invasive, yet as with any medical treatment, may have undesirable side effects. The majority of patients simply feel thirsty and flushed after treatment and side effects are minor. The potential side effects depend on the patient’s health, the part of the body that is treated and how high the temperature is raised. Your doctor will discuss all potential side effects prior to beginning the therapy and assess you for any risks.
