Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer in China, accounting for approximately 25% of all cancer cases. Liver cancer is the second most common type of cancer, accounting for around 19% of cases, and stomach cancer is the third most common, accounting for about 8% of cases. These three types of cancer are a significant public health concern in China and are a major focus of cancer research and treatment in the country.

Recently, Ray Lauritzen, the VP of Service at Pyrexar Medical, visited several hospitals in China to observe the use of the BSD-2000 hyperthermia system. This system uses heat to target cancer cells and has been shown to be an effective complementary therapy to traditional treatments. Its adoption in China is growing and for good reason.

In addition to the use of hyperthermia, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is also an important aspect of cancer treatment in the country. It is based on the idea that the body is a complex system of interconnected parts that work together to maintain health and well-being.

Traditional therapies such as acupuncture and herbal remedies are often used with modern Western treatments to help patients manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. With modern hospitals and skilled medical professionals, China is well-positioned to provide comprehensive and effective cancer care to its citizens.
