Bookimed prepared the selection of clinics for the treatment for lung cancer in Germany which present a perfect combination of quality and simplicity of choice.

Germany uses cutting-edge methods and techniques in treatment of different types of lung cancer. Today, even patients with the 3rd stage of cancer who are treated by the German doctors have a chance of recovery. German experts adhere to a comprehensive approach to the treatment of lung cancer, and prefer the combination of medications and treatments. That is why medical institutions in Germany are in high demand among international patients of Bookimed, which is engaged in providing booking services for diagnostics and treatment in the best clinics of Germany and around the world.

In general, the treatment of lung cancer in Germany is not fundamentally different from the treatment in other countries. However, the latest technology, scientific and medical achievements of German doctors allow to treat cancer in this country as efficiently as possible.

In the early stages of lung cancer (1st and 2nd stage), the main method of treatment is surgery. The use of laparoscopy and other minimally invasive techniques increases the patient's chances for a full recovery from cancer. On these stages you cannot postpone the treatment onset, because the sooner it starts, the better chances for a full recovery will be. Bookimed offers to book a treatment as soon as possible and get to it immediately.

At the stage 2 of lung cancer multimodal therapy or a complex of radiation and chemotherapy is also used.

Advanced lung cancer stages (3rd and 4th) should be treated with antibody therapy, which does not allow the tumor to grow quickly and prevents metastases. German doctors use a number of other techniques in the treatment of lung cancer. They include the metronomic therapy, brachytherapy, intrabronchial stenting. German clinics are also the pioneers in the field of practical application of different gene therapy methods of cancer treatment.

Complete diagnostics of lung cancer in German clinics usually costs € 5,000 - 11,000. The treatment cost ranges from € 36,000 to € 41,000.

    • In stages 1 - 2A of lung cancer the endoscopic methods of diagnostics and care treatment are preferred.

    Argon Beamer Procedure – non-invasive endoscopic operation, when argon gas, which is coming out of the tube, “evaporates” the malignant tissue. This option allows to retain much of the unaffected areas of lung tissue and accelerate the patient’s recovery.

    • Radiosurgery, namely, Gamma-Knife. Advantages: simultaneous effect, high conformity degree, no surgical risks.
    • In stages 3 - 4 pulmonectomy (removing particular segments, lobes or whole lung) or bronchial stenting are applied along with chemotherapy.

    Before selecting the final treatment plan, cancer metastases diagnostics are conducted by endoscopic biopsy of the local lymph nodes. During the treatment process each patient may stay in ward with a close relative or friend.

    Cost of lung cancer treatment

    The treatment procedures costs from € 35,000 to 44,000. Price depends on the stage of disease, way of care and additional features on demand.
