When to me in Moscow have diagnosed a cancer of a stomach - I thought that to us this my life has ended.
I did not know where to go, what to do? After a short search for information on the Internet, I decided to contact the Israeli clinic "Rambam". Orgprovodovi practically imperceptibly grew into the operation itself. They took on all the issues of flight, diagnosis and operation. The price / performance ratio is simply excellent!
Now under no circumstances go to our hospitals I do not want.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

I want to share my experience of diagnosis in Rambam. There was a suspicion of breast cancer. It was necessary to confirm the diagnosis. I sent them a request on 02 January. Have told, how the process of the organization of treatment operates. In 3 days I received a call from the clinic. A week later, there was a first consultation with a doctor mammologist Drome. The total price for all came out 5500 dollars. All the diagnostics took 3 days. Then another 5 days, I was waiting for the results of the biopsy. As a result, there was another meeting where the diagnosis was confirmed. But now I know exactly what and how to treat me! But I have an initial stage and no metastases. There is hope for a cure.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

In Moscow, local doctors tormented me for two months! Only a puncture (not a biopsy) 2 times took! And with the assumption of "breast cancer" was sent to an operation to remove the entire breast ("so reliable"). After two months of torment, I decided to go to Israel. I found the clinic Rambam. Have made a biopsy and diagnostics. They decided that at my stage it makes no sense to remove the entire chest. We decided to remove only one lymph node. So the breast will be saved !!!

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 breast cancer

More than 5 years ago, we diagnosed in Moscow - breast cancer of the 2nd stage. They wanted to be treated first at home - at home, but the doctor advised the clinic in Israel. Read about the clinic Shiba, turned to the department of international tourism. The next day I received an invitation and went with my daughter to the clinic. We were met, escorted to the clinic, conducted by doctors. A few days later I was operated on by Moyshe Papa. Thank God, I'm fine, I managed to save my breast, which was not promised in Moscow. Every six months I go to the examination. Yes, it's not cheap, but life is worth it.

The patient was treated of lung cancer

When lung cancer was detected, we were advised to contact Israel, namely to the Shiba clinic, since our friends had already been treated there. Through the Internet we contacted the clinic and, after sending all the necessary results of the tests, we were promptly sent an invitation for treatment.

Arriving in Israel, we were pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the medical staff to all patients.
After carrying out the necessary examinations, the doctors of the thoracic department decided to perform the operation by puncturing, using the topic apparatus (anthropogenic source of radiation used in the treatment), and not the cavity as they were going to do in Russia. All the medical staff of the department was very attentive and caring, for which they thank you in particular.

On the 7th day after the operation, my mother was discharged, and after 10 days we were at home in Voronezh, (before doctors did not recommend a flight.)

Summing up my words I want to sincerely and wholeheartedly say thank you to the doctors of the Shiba clinic, who saved my mother, tk. Mom is the most precious person in life.

The patient was treated of brain cancer

My name is Makpal Turkbaeva. I am writing with Almaty, Kazakhstan. I was lucky five years ago to get into your clinic and have an operation to remove the meningioma in the left temporal parietal part of the most professional neurosurgeon doctor Z. Kohen.

First and foremost, I am very grateful to him, for the fact that he gave me the happiness of having a full healthy life that I now have. And also many thanks to all the medical personnel and the staff of the medical center of Shiba clinic (Tina, Jana, Rina) for responsible work on the patients, for support in the most difficult period of life, for professional organization in hospitalization and treatment, for creating all the conditions of the post-rehabilitation period.

Often people who have health problems come to me with questions about your clinic, and, listening to me, admire you, since my story looks like a fairy tale for them. I, having lived to 30 years old, having a one-year-old son and a pregnancy at 4 months, underwent three operations in Almaty, which followed one after the other, and led to the main cause of my disease - a malignant brain tumor that could only be eliminated from you - so decided my close people. And no matter how complicated the flight to your country was by transit through Istanbul, when I, with a high pressure, a terrible headache, just not lifting my head in the plane, lying on the seats, reached Istanbul, where the airport staff all me was fumbled with a transfer to Tel Aviv, I think that all the bandages wrapped on my body, the stitches after two operations in Almaty, can look like a girl-terrorist.

I just did not understand what was happening to me when I arrived in Israel, I was met by an ambulance car, delivered quickly to the reception point of the Shiba clinic, where, immediately, I was immediately taken for transfusion after dehydration on the flight, and only when I came to, after all the primary examinations at the reception, I was registered.

Many things surprised me in the Shiba clinic: the professional quick reception of the patient, a two-day preparation for the operation (taking tests, examination of doctors), the operation itself 11 hours after which the day came to, the obligatory doctor's request already from the third day after the operation - more to move, not to lie, frequent washing yourself, including the head, which was so strange to me, because it would have been different in my homeland after such a long operation, I probably would have stayed in the hospital for a long time, with a prohibition to swim, etc. Yes, it was amazing when I was discharged on the sixth day after the operation. And a month after the operation, flying home in Almaty, I again returned for laser therapy.

To date, I'm alive and well, all these five years, as it should be with us, was registered with a local oncologist, conscientiously visited neuropathologists and other doctors who with great interest read my extract from Shiba Hospital, where there was a qualified description of the operation performed, and every six months, conducted an MRI of the head, and in each of them, my position is excellent - there is no tumor growth time.

I once again thank your clinic and the most important person who made me happy - Dr. Coyen !!!

The patient underwent artificial insemination (ivf)

During these seven long and painful years, we had to endure so much pain and tears, doubts, unjustified hopes and disappointments after each failed attempt of ECO in Kazakhstan, that we were practically on the verge of divorce. The last attempt to conceive a child, we decided to take in Israel - in the clinic Shiba! When we arrived in Shibu we were assigned two charming, kind and sympathetic coordinators - Larisa Goldberg and Vera Gerov, thanks to the efforts of which, as well as all doctors and nurses, we had a happy family in the family, and in the world there was more one Kazakh! The Kazakhs say: "Bir zhan duniege alyp kelsen - mans yang alyp kelesin!" (Who gives life to one - gives it to thousands!). I want to dedicate these wise words to Vera and Larissa, thanks to the help and help of which another tiny heart has hammered! Many thanks to the girls for your professionalism, warmth and responsiveness, and a low bow to you! We love you very much and often remember looking at our beloved daughter! Many thanks to all the staff of the clinic, just familiar and unfamiliar, living on holy Israeli land! I wish that in your life every day there were events, when from happiness you would also like to embrace the whole world and all around the world!
With great respect and love,
Kazakh family, having acquired Happiness
