The present observational study concerns the impact of the hyperthermic method (deep capacitive radiofrequency hyperthermia) on the quality of life of cancer patients in active and inactive therapy. It considers the improvement of symptoms such as pain, fatigue and the psychological state of the patient after one cycle of treatment. The assessment of the patient's quality of life was performed using the SF-12 test, which is widely used for this purpose in the international medical literature. The use of hyperthermia in improving the quality of life of cancer patients seems relevant and this encourages further studies as well as the use of the method on a wider scale.
