With the global rise in cancer incidence and mortality rates, research on the topic has become increasingly urgent. Among the significant players in this field are heat shock proteins (HSPs), particularly HSPA4 from the HSP70 subfamily, which has recently garnered considerable interest for its role in cancer progression. However, despite numerous studies on HSPA4 in specific cancer types, a comprehensive analysis across all cancer types is lacking. This study employs various bioinformatics techniques to delve into the role of HSPA4 in pan-cancer. Our objective is to assess its potential in clinical diagnosis, prognosis, and as a future molecular target for therapy. The research findings reveal significant differences in HSPA4 expression across different cancer types, suggesting its diagnostic value and close association with cancer staging and patient survival rates. Furthermore, genetic variations and methylation status of HSPA4 play critical roles in tumorigenesis. Lastly, the interaction of HSPA4 with immune cells is linked to the tumor microenvironment (TME) and immunotherapy. In summary, HSPA4 emerges as a promising cancer biomarker and a vital member of the HSPs family, holding potential applications in diagnosis, prognosis, and immunotherapy.
