Breast Cancer and Body Temperature.

Abstract

There is frequently a material difference in the metabolic liberation of heat energy between normal and cancer cells. This cannot be accounted for on the basis of an increased circulation. The increased heat in the tumour and surrounding host area as compared to normal tissue can be detected by the aid of modern heat-recording apparatus. New practical temperature-recording techniques, the results of their use and the implications are described.
