PEMFT treatment post malignant growth

Hi! If a patient had a malignant growth in the past which was removed by lumpectomy and they have not had any signs of metastises would seldom treatment with PMag therapy be advisable?

Agree with Cliff. If no signs of recurrence, then the treatment is not contraindicated. Many therapists have been led to believe that a history of malignancy constitutes a contraindication - but that is not the case. History of malignancy which has been treated and now being monitored but no active intervention needed if fine. Tim

Dear Aisling If the treatment area has been shown to be completely clear then I cannot think of any reason why PMag will have an adverse effect Cliff
