Treatment of brain cancer in Germany

We`ve found 37 specialized clinics for private treatment of brain cancer

Brain cancer symptoms

  • Large volume formations are followed by nystagmus ("wall-eye") and other neurological manifestations (the tumor compresses on the corresponding parts of the brain);
  • Periodic convulsions that look like epileptic;
  • Brain hemorrhage (typical for late-stage cancer) can lead to a cerebrovascular accident;
  • Some tumors provoke meningoencephalitis. It manifested in the form of severe headaches, stiffness (tension) neck, seizures, burning sensation in the head.

German clinics are leading in the statistics of successful surgeries on the brain. Equipment and qualification allows neurosurgeons to remove the tumors without trepanning (endoscopically). Radiosurgical techniques are used to eliminate small foci without penetration into the cranial cavity.

Brain cancer diagnostics in Germany

Primary brain cancer is quite rare. As a rule, we are talking about the metastasis of other organs or systems. German diagnosticians are known by their precise search of the primary focus of the tumor. This explains the low incidence of recurrence after the treatment of brain cancer in Germany.

The main diagnostic methods in Germany are:

  • MRI (priority method), MSCT with contrast agent;
  • PET;
  • Magnetic encephalography;
  • Puncture with cerebrospinal fluid tap (to define abnormal cells and composition);
  • Biopsy, including stereotactic.

Peculiarities of brain cancer treatment in Germany

Circumscribed tumors (at the stage 1-2A) are removed by means of the robot assistant (the Da Vinci system):

  • Systems of Gamma Knife: a tumor is "evaporated" by gamma radiation;
  • Endoscopic removal of tumors (microsurgery);
  • Ordinar surgery.

At the 2-3 stage the treatment additionally includes methods of chemotherapy and radiation exposure:

  • Systemic administration of combinations of cytotoxic drugs; Germany is known for the latest developments in this area;
  • Intra-arterial introduction of suppressing tumor growth drugs;
  • Radiation therapy is used when there are some metastasis, or to prevent cases of recurrence.

The 4th stage of cancer involves palliative (improving the quality of life) manipulation.

Cost of brain cancer treatment in Germany

  • Treatment of cancer in Germany is more expensive than in other European countries, but more affordable than in the USA. At the same time in terms of the effectiveness of treatment for many years Germany leads the medical tourism market.
  • Germany has some of the best survival rates and recurrence lack over the planet. This allows to avoid additional costs and reduce patients’ risks. German doctors are ready to take patients with cancer, who got denial of treatment in domestic hospitals.
  • Comfortable conditions of stay and the European service;
  • By virtue of Bookimed, patients from around the world have the unique opportunity to receive treatment in German clinics with fair and objective prices, avoiding additional charges to intermediaries.
