Breast cancer has adversely influenced women’s lives for many years. Yet, the current cancer detection methods come with disadvantages such as lack of reliability, health concerns, and high operational costs. This research contributes to the theory and practice of cancer detection technique by introducing a novel method which combines thermal and electromagnetic responses of human body to radio frequency excitation. Using several simulation studies, It is demonstrated how the differences in magneto-thermal properties of malignant and healthy breast tissues can be exploit to pinpoint the size and location of a cancerous tumor.
