Abstract

Brain malignancy, either primary or metastatic, in general is associated with a very poor outcome in spite of the best therapy modern medicine has to offer. The multimodality approach appears to offer the best chance of achieving our goal of improved survival (quality and quantity) and ultimately cure. Hyperthermia, though its application to brain cancer remains experimental, has proven itself in its ability to improve cancer therapy results. There are many methods available to apply hyperthermia to the brain and its application, thus far, has been quite safe. Continued research in this exciting field is warranted.
