    • At 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, 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.
    • At stages 3 - 4, pulmonectomy (removal of particular segments, lobes or the 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.

    The cost of lung cancer treatment

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