Hyperthermia is an efficient type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures to damage and kill cancer cells. Previous studies have focused on the treatment of tumor, however,it can not substitute for traditional methols. In recent years,new research in shows hyperthermia plays an important role in bone metastasis pain control because of the advantages of width rang,rapid onset and noninvasive, and it is therefore well used in. It is also becoming one of classical methods for bone metastasis from cancer. This article reviews recent research and progress of mechanisms of hyperthermia in relief of bone metastasis pain.
