Treatment of liver cancer in Israel

Liver cancer is a malignant tumor that arises in the result of liver cell mutation under the influence of various factors. This type of cancer is inherent to people under 40 years old. What is more, the incidence among men is several times higher than among women. There are two types of liver cancer: primary and secondary, notably the secondary liver cancer is almost 40 times more common than the primary one.

The liver is the main object of affection in primary liver cancer. This type of disease is common for Asia and Africa. It can develop on the basis of liver cells (hepatocellular carcinoma), cells of the bile ducts (cholangiocarcinoma), and cells of the liver vascular (angiosarcoma) or immature cells of the liver (hepatoblastoma). Secondary cancer has another focus of the tumor, which infects the liver with its metastases. The focus is located, for example, in the stomach, intestine or pancreatic gland.

Cost of liver cancer treatment in Israel

Only in Israel:

  • The high-precision surgeries of liver resection
  • The unique technique of ethanol injection
  • Minimally invasive targeted therapy
90% is the accuracy rate of the diagnostics at the early stages.
More than 70% is the probability of complete cure.

Causes and risk factors

Nowadays the causes of liver cancer have not been fully established yet. Its occurrence is traditionally associated with two factors:

  • Viral hepatitis affects the liver. The presence of virus in liver cells leads to chronic inflammation and malfunction of the organ. Also bile ducts and intercellular spaces become inflamed. The presence of virus in the liver for many years leads to cirrhosis, i.e. death of healthy cells and their replacement with tough scar tissue. This infection is particularly dangerous if in addition there are also several forms of hepatitis (B and C, C and D). The phenomenon of cirrhosis is the basis for the liver cancer development.
  • Alcoholism. Alcoholic toxins poison liver cells and this also causes cirrhosis and also leads to the formation of cancer.

Rather recently two more possible causes were specified:

  • Aflotoxin ingestion, the waste product of Aspergillus, the mold. Most often, the fungus is found in Asia and Africa, it affects wheat, rice and nuts. The presence of aflotoxin in humans increases the risk of liver cancer in almost seven times.
  • Infection by Trematoda flatworms. These parasites settle in the bile ducts of the liver, poisoning it with their waste products. The consequence is the appearance of a tumor in the bile ducts.

Less probable causes are the following:

  • an excess of iron in the body;
  • ingestion of carcinogenic substances;
  • syphilis.

Risk factors for liver cancer include:

  • male sex;
  • use of anabolic steroids in sports;
  • diabetes.

Symptoms of liver cancer

Liver tumor declares itself rather weakly at the stage of its development. At this stage, the symptoms do not differ from the symptoms that are common to all cancers. These include, for instance:

  • causeless weakness, loss of appetite and weight loss;
  • predisposition to diarrhea;
  • low blood pressure, hand tremor, dizziness;
  • nausea, sometimes turning into vomiting.

Quite often among these symptoms is a nagging pain in the right hypochondrium.

As the disease progresses, the development of which happens very quickly (literally within few weeks), liver dysfunction happens. Bile is poorly processed and secreted into the intestine. In the result more specific symptoms of this type of cancer appear:

  • increased pain in the liver area;
  • enlarged liver, bulging out from under her ribs (sometimes it is palpable and the tumor is like a lump of solid matter);
  • jaundice, i.e. changes in skin color, whites of the eyes and mouth (up to bright yellow);
  • dryness of mucous membranes;
  • constant itching and dry skin;
  • nasal and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Diagnostics of liver cancer in Israel

The initial stage of liver cancer can be diagnosed in the clinics of Israel with the help of a new method of a blood test for the presence of alpha-fetoprotein, tumor marker of the disease. This is a specific protein and only blood of an embryo has it in a norm. Its presence in the blood of an adult allows to diagnose liver cancer accurate to 70-90%.

Besides this examination type, the Israeli doctors perform a number of other diagnostic tests:

  • Visual inspection of the patient, analysis of complaints, palpation and knocking the liver area for its change.
  • Ultrasound examination of the abdominal cavity. This helps to define the nature, size and structure of the tumor, as well as the presence of metastases.
  • Computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdominal cavity. They allow to finalize the malignant nature of the tumor, its exact sizes and option of removal.
  • General analyses (they allow to determine the indirect symptoms of liver cancer and the patient's readiness for surgery):

o full blood count;

o blood test for bilirubin;

o urine test for urobilin.

The final diagnosis is made after Israeli doctors conduct biopsy, i.e. histological examination of affected liver tissue. Material for analysis is taken using a thick needle under local anesthesia and ultrasound guidance system.

Methods of liver cancer treatment in Israel

At the early stages of cancer development еhe treatment is conducted surgically by resection (removal of the affected part of the liver). This is due to the ability of the body to restore its ¾ remoted volume. It should be noted that, due to the abundance of blood vessels, liver surgery is difficult and quite dangerous. If surgery is impossible, Israeli doctors use other methods of treatment:

  • Embolization, an introduction of the blocking mixture to the blood vessels feeding the tumor.
  • Ablation, local destruction of cancer cells. The Israeli hospitals use several variations of this method:

o Introduction of the electrodes to the liver tumor for local heating (radiofrequency thermoablation);

o liver vascular blocking by the radioactive isotopes (radioembolization);

o destruction of tumor by low-temperature materials (cryoablation);

  • Liver transplantation.

Traditional methods of cancer treatment are hardly suitable. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are used in very limited doses.

The Israeli hospitals successfully use new methods of liver cancer treatment as well:

  • Chemoembolization is a kind of chemotherapy, in which drugs are injected directly into the hepatic vessels supplying the tumor.
  • Injection of concentrated ethanol in tumor cells.
  • Immunotherapy is the use of special drugs that slow the growth of tumors.
  • Targeted therapy is the use of drugs that act directly on cancer cells and does not affect other cells of the body.

Patient review on the treatment of liver cancer in Israel

I was shocked when I heard the diagnosis of liver cancer. I began the treatment in my hometown immediately. I wasn’t thinking about going for treatment abroad at all. However, very soon, I went into freefall. I had many doubts, which country and clinic would be the best to choose. But, after arriving in Israel, all of them dispersed. The doctors quickly conducted the diagnosis and prescribed treatment. Now I'm at home, but I continue to be treated. Israeli doctors do have a lot of experience."

Rehabilitation and prevention of liver cancer recurrence in Israel

The goal of rehabilitation is early recovery of normal functioning of the body after treatment. To achieve this goal, the experienced Israeli experts develop a special sparing regimen in treatment that includes proper nutrition, exercise therapy, Chinese medicine techniques and other activities based on the individual characteristics of the patient. The rehabilitation process can take from a few hours to several days.

Prevention of reoccurrence of the disease consists of a healthy lifestyle: proper diet, abstinence from alcohol and dose of physical activities.

Cost of treatment of liver cancer in Israel

The cost of treatment in Israel depends on the occurrence of the disease, its stage, and characteristics of individual patients. You can obtain more information from the specialists of the Bookimed company.

The patient was treated of pancreatic cancer

I was not in the hospital. I asked just a second opinion. I was very disappointed, because I was working a lot to translate all the documentation into English, and finally I was discussing with doctor only 10 minutes, and the level of the discussion was very poor. Practically I did not get anything for 400 EUR.
