Lung cancer treatment in Israel
Lung cancer is considered as one of the most dangerous malignant new formations:
- Lung cancer is usually asymptomatic. Cancer of 1-2 stage is found during radiography, abdominal ultrasound, diagnostics and treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases;
- The tumor spreads rapidly as far as this part of the body has peculiar characteristics of blood supply and lymphatic system (large blood vessels, strong bloodstream, extensive lymph ducts).
There could be distinguished the following types of lung cancer:
- central lung cancer (70% of all cases) affects the main, lobar or intermediate bronchus. Is complicated by an abscess or pneumonia, aggravating diagnostics of the main disease;
- peripheral lung cancer occurs in the segmental bronchi and their branches. To compare with the central lung cancer, symptoms of peripheral are more unclear - its 3 stage is not accompanied by a cough and hemoptysis;
- combined lung cancer affects large bronchi and peripheral bronchioles.
Diagnostics of lung cancer in Israel
- examination by an oncologist;
- PET-CT of lungs helps to determine the origin of the tumor;
- searching for atypical cells in sputum;
- pleurocentesis (pleura involvement is checked);
- bronchoscopy with biopsy (is applied if central cancer is suspected). Israeli clinics use bronchoscopes with integrated ultrasound;
- mediastinoscopy, endoscopy of the superior mediastinum. Diagnostic puncture of lymph nodes is performed. The method allows to determine spreading process more accurately;
- CT screening is carried out for a quick searching for metastases.
- Pulmonary function test;
- FDG PET/CT.
Methods of lung cancer treatment in Israel
If central lung cancer is found at its 1-A stage, Israeli oncologists remove a new formation endoscopically. Cryoablation (freezing), electrocautery, photodynamic impact on tumors are applied.
Peripheral cancer is treated with segmentectomy, removal of a segment of the lung lobe (a small piece of tissue).
At the 2-3 stage of lung cancer the lung lobe (lobectomy) or the entire lung is removed. In the latter case, a crucial role can belong to mediastinoscopy. The method shows if the second lung is affected with cancer development or not.
Complex treatment therapy of lung cancer includes:
- chemotherapy, including targeted administration of drugs if the disease is limited. The structure of the lung makes it easy to create a high concentration of chemotherapeutic agents in a particular part of the organ, which is effectively used by Israeli oncologists;
- radiotherapy is used after segmentectomy or lobectomy to prevent recurrences. Israeli oncologists use technologies to accurately and efficiently impact on foci in the lungs (adaptive strobing, Novalis etc.);
- VATS - video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, which is taken in the early stages of lung cancer, is proven to reduce mortality compared with open lobectomy (NCCN);
In addition to standard methods of radiation therapy (CT-planned 3D-CRT), several certified clinics apply advanced methods - 4D-CT and/or PET/CT simulation, IMRT/VMAT, IGRT, motion management, proton therapy.
