Abstract

Millimeter wave (MMW) radiation does not have enough energy to ionize atoms or molecules and therefore does not have the potential to cause DNA damage. It is expected that this radiation can deteriorate the viability of cancer cells in the tumor while healthy tissue remains unaffected. However, considering the aggressiveness of cancer cells in terms of their motility and invasiveness, MMW radiation-related thermal alterations in the exposed tumor and its environment may trigger cancer cell detachment and further spread. In this study, we looked into changes in cell adhesion and motility of a triple-negative breast cancer cell exposed to MMW radiation and compared it to an epithelial cell subjected to the same treatment.
