The term "electromagnetic fields" (EMF) is a combination of electric and magnetic fields as a diagnostic method as well as a therapeutic tool with many advantages such as ease of operation and painlessness, very controllable, which today has found wide application in regenerative medicine and also cancer treatment.
 In addition to organs such as nerves, hearts, and bones that have an electrical function, the presence of electrically charged particles inside the cells creates an internal electromagnetic field. This field can be affected by the external electromagnetic field and cause therapeutic effects. Its therapeutic effects relate to the applications of the electromagnetic field as a stimulus to induce various biological effects on cells, such as altering cell proliferation, differentiation, cell cycle, apoptosis, DNA proliferation, cytokine expression, and more. Also, combination therapy by the electromagnetic field, along with other physical therapies such as radiotherapy and even systemic therapy such as chemotherapy, are the most important approaches to using the electromagnetic field in the treatment of cancer.
Subsequently, Electromagnetic fields can lead to the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells and the modulation of the immune system, which plays an important role in the treatment of inflammatory disease and regenerative medicine treatments. Also, this field can create new horizons in cancer treatment due to its many advantages such as being a non-invasive, selective function, and ease of using and as well as affordability.
