Background: Carcinoma breast is the dominant cancer in urban females in India due to hormonal imbalance. The patient usually presents with symptoms of a painless lump in the breast axillary lymphadenopathy, skin discoloration over the breast, nipple discharge, and altered breast contour. Case report: In this study, we report a case of a 70-year-old female with complaints of a lump in the right breast and right axillary node, who was diagnosed with right breast cancer stage 3. The patient was given six cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, followed by hormone therapy and hyperthermia using a remission one-degree machine. Results: The breast and axillary node tumor responded well to the treatment, and there was only minimal residual activity in the post-treatment positron emission tomography CT scan. Conclusions: Hyperthermia treatment provides additive benefits along with chemotherapy and hormone therapy for carcinoma breast patients.
