The patient was treated of brain tumor

I worked with bookimed to explore options for brain tumor surgery in Turkey. In less than 24 hours after filling out the form online with basic information, received a call from bookimed specialist. It was very helpful that Ivan Koval spoke both Russian and English. Upon sending patient's scans, Ivan was able to give his feedback on urgency of the matter and relayed all of that in both languages. Within one day, we received responses from 2 clinics. With Ivan's help we were able to evaluate both bids as well as quality of facilities. It was very reassuring that Ivan knew the names of the specialists that I had already researched. Since the parents of the child insisted that I made at least one contact directly with the clinic, the delay of the direct response and the quality of the bid were very disconcerting. Direct contact with a clinic was done by the clinic's administrative staff who began making contacts with orthopedist and ophthalmologist (based on symptoms caused by the brain tumor!). Contrary to the parents' expectations, direct contact was not "more economic" but turned out to be too vague and still unclear if the correct department was ever consulted. Ivan's situation was very difficult as he had to deal with a family who made decisions based on the cost (no regard for quality) and word of the mouth (no differentiation as to which procedure was done). He was very patient and compassionate to the fate of the child. Ivan was able to relay to the child's parents diagnosis, bids, comparisons, and complexity of the procedure to be performed. It takes several hours per day and several days to coordinate the correct diagnosis based on scans and numerous phone calls between different time zones to coordinate quick and accurate response. I received updates and calls as soon as they came in which implies that Ivan worked 24/7 to make the best arrangements. While my initial contact was a shot in the dark, over the course of few days I began to appreciate the sense of confidence that comes from having a trained medical specialist to represent your interests when "shopping" for a brain surgeon. No amount of googling and online reviews can substitute opinion from a trained medic in dealing with various clinics. At the end of the day, I feel that having Ivan to oversee the process from admission to the RIGHT clinic to take care of the RIGHT procedure (brain and not foot) all the way to discharge is a solid form of medical insurance.

Hope and faith work miracles. If you have hope and opportunity, you have to use it undoubtedly. And the first decision that springs to mind is the sole right. Everything was performed qualitatively, people are responsive. I want to say thank you to Sofia (Coordinator of International Patients Support), who helped us to make a right and sole choice. She provided us with all pros and cons, helped to make a right decision.

«I am disappointed»

I found out about this clinic on line,got in touch and went in for a specific treatment that they arehighly rated for with Dr. Elizur. Our initial contact,I trusted it will be helpful for me. I payed quite a lot of cash my visit of 15minutes consultation. I came home to where I live,Switzerland,emailed to schedule the actual procedure,very slow response,and at the end even calling his assistant didn't help,I gave up on the whole thing. No answer for a month now. Nu? I believe Dr. Should be there to help every patients equally with care and to give an answer. I really don't understand what goes on there.

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.
