Treatment of skin cancer in Israel

Skin cancer is an oncological disease that may develop from different cell types, including epithelial cells. Epithelium is located on the skin and mucous membrane of all organs and systems. However, under the influence of carcinogenic factors, epithelial cells of older people mostly are transformed into cancer cells. But, despite of the high incidence of skin cancers, it is treated quite successfully due to new effective and attenuated methods. However, at the early stage it is necessary to carry out an accurate diagnostics and define the stage of disease and the type of skin cancer.

Cost of skin cancer treatment in Israel

Only in Israel:

  • Only you decide and choose a doctor for consultation;
  • The effectiveness of skin cancer treatment is confirmed by a variety of positive reviews from patients and the continuing growth in popularity of the country for medical tourism;
  • The cost of skin cancer treatment is lower than in Europe and the USA, and the effectiveness of the therapy and professionalism are among the highest in the world.
The efficiency of complex treatment of skin cancer is 65%. This is one of the highest rates of skin cancer treatment.
Israeli doctors conduct follow-up examination and make a more accurate diagnosis in 95% of the requests from patients with suspected melanoma.

Causes of skin cancer

Skin cancer is the mutative changes of the normal epidermis cells with their abnormally fast and progressing division and growth.

Histologists define several types of skin cancer:

  • squamous cell skin carcinoma that develops from squamous cells of epithelium;
  • basal cell carcinoma when basal cells are mutating;
  • melanoma when the cells composing moles and naevi with melanin pigment are transforming.

Studies have shown that the cause of cancer is not fully studied yet genetic abnormalities in cells, the mutations that lead to the development of the cancer process under the carcinogen factors.

These factors include:

  • papillomas and other benign skin changes (hyperkeratosis, moles, pigmented spots, keratoacanthomas);
  • increased ultraviolet radiation;
  • radiation injury;
  • prolonged contact of even small doses of toxic, aggressive carcinogens with the skin;
  • chronic dermatological diseases with ulceration.

Symptoms of skin cancer

Skin cancer at the early stages of the disease is asymptomatic. Therefore, oncologists around the world underline the importancу to be attentive with the condition of the skin and if any changes, immediately contact the person who will make the diagnosis for a number of characteristic symptoms:

  • there is a change of various forms to 5 mm on the skin;
  • at the early stages it does not differ from the color of the surrounding skin;
  • abnormal area on the skin continues to grow and may reach several cm;
  • papule inflames, it can be with ulceration and make the erosion.

In a case of undiagnosed skin cancer self-treatment is very dangerous. After applying the medication without consulting a dermatologist or oncologist, clinical picture changes and additional time and diagnostics will be required to make the diagnosis.

Skin cancer diagnostics in Israel

Examination of skin cancer in Israel begins with a consultation with a specialist on the first day of appeal to the clinic. If the patient have carried out the biopsy and takes the glasses with him/her, simultaneously with the consultation, inspection of the glasses takes place.

On the same day after inspection the specialist conducts:

  • Dermatoscopy is a noninvasive method that allows doctor to assess the condition of the cells of both surface and bottom layers of the skin;
  • Biopsy;
  • Cytologic screening;
  • Blood tests for tumor markers.

The diagnostics is based on the histopathological inspection of the material obtained by biopsy. If necessary, in the second or third day doctor examine the lymph nodes and internal organs to detect possible metastasis. In this case the diagnostic program includes the following researches:

  • Ultrasound;
  • MRI;
  • CT and PET-CT.

In total the diagnostic program takes 3-4 days.

Skin cancer like the other ones has staging. Stage determination is an important task of the diagnostic program for making an effective treatment regimen.

Stage 1 of skin cancer

Stage 2 of melanoma

The first stage of skin cancer: a tumor is up to 2 cm with no metastases. The chances of cure are very high.

The second stage of skin cancer: a tumor is up to 5 cm with no metastases. The chances of cure are high if there are timely diagnostics and highly-qualified cancer surgeons.

Stage 3 of oncology

Stage 4 of skin cancer

The third stage of skin cancer: a tumor is bigger than 5 cm, and/or has metastasis in regional lymph nodes. The chances of recovery depend on the cancer prevalence in the body and if there is a positive response to systemic methods of treatment .

The fourth stage of skin cancer: the size of a tumor size can be any, and metastases affect lymph nodes and organs. The chances of cure are medium or low, they depend on the general condition of the patient and the response to the treatment of organs and systems.

Methods of melanoma treatment in Israel

Israeli doctors make the treatment program for skin cancer only with effective achieving of cancer therapy, making the chances of a cure for cancer the highest. The treatment program is comprised based on the patient condition and tumor morphology. At the later stages of skin cancer it is possible to use the combined treatment methods.

The following therapies are applied:

  • At the stages 1-2: surgical treatment of small cancers (excision, removal of the tumor is performed under general anesthesia with the use of the da Vinci robotic system); surgery can be performed during a biopsy procedure. At the same time the surgeon removes nearby tissues to prevent the possibility of leaving cancer cells. If there are the indications after examination, regional lymph nodes are removed.
  • Cryotherapy in combination with a laser at the early stages of the disease is the destruction of the tumor by means of liquid nitrogen or laser.
  • Later stages require systemic treatment methods for the ending of the spread of metastasis as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, biotherapy and targeted therapy.

Patient review on the treatment of skin cancer in Israel

“I am writing you with appreciation for the treatment I have received in Israel.

The melanoma was found in Kharkiv (Ukraine) and in 5 days I had a surgery on a mole removal in Assuta Clinic (Israel). It is impossible to express what I felt when I arrived in Israel for treatment, because my daughter just reached a little more than two months of age. I was very scared and depressed. But I pulled it over thanks to the care and support of those who were involved in my treatment in Israel.

Thank to all the doctors who treated me: the oncologist Prof. Jacob Schachter, the surgeon Dr. Ehud Miller (who removed melanoma and moles all over my body), and the surgeon Prof. Mordehaj Gutman (who took a biopsy of axillary nodes). All these doctors are the specialists of the highest level. And of course all the equipment in Assuta

Hospital where I underwent the diagnostics and treatment was the most modern and accurate."

Galina, Kharkiv

Rehabilitation and prevention of recurrence of skin cancer in Israel

The climate of the country has a restorative effect on the body, and the rest can be combined with therapy.

The patient was treated of bladder cancer

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!!

The patient was treated of kidney cancer

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties.

The patient underwent hip replacement

I went through the replacement of the hip joint in the MALVASINKA Clinic with subsequent rehabilitation from 18.03.2018 to 11.04.2018. After finding the house for 4 weeks, he systematized his initial and final impression. His stay and the quality of treatment, rehabilitation in the Clinic Malvazinki would like to appreciate in the following way: 1. PLUSES: - Excellent operating surgeon Vladislav Hospodar; - Excellent and very professionally attentive physiotherapist Dana Braxova; - Responsive nurses, especially Andrea. 2. MINUSES: BASIC FAT MINUS - ASSISTANCE OF CONSERVER TRANSFERS UNDER THE IMMEDIATE THE MANAGEMENT OF OLGA SKATKOVA (Olga SKATKOVA) - As it is written in one of the previous reviews - "Everything is almost fine before it paid off.  Then no one has anything to do with you! "- I absolutely agree, after leaving all my letters completely  were ignored by the concierge O. Skatkova, despite the status of "Delivered" and "Viewed." - In particular, the extract / anamnesis was issued without translation, although the coordinators of the clinic promised that  the translation will be sent in 2-3 days after discharge, without results, wait a month (!!!!!). After 3 weeks of waiting and inquiries received a short answer that they have "force majeure" without any specifics when the translation of the statement will be made, and the time allowed for the registration of the disability goes and it is not my dimensionless,  I no longer see the point in writing. A reference image sent after 6 weeks after the operation (on the recommendation of the clinic's specialists, to determine the progress of rehabilitation and the time when it will be possible to refuse crutches) was sent last week, just after a 6-week period, as ordered, see the result above - the status of the message to O. Skatkova "Delivered" and "Viewed" the reaction is ZERO. The subsequent reminder of the picture and the translation of the extract is still left without any answer. - If "According to the rules of the clinic, concierge-interpreters visit every patient for 1-2 hours a day for  translation into Russian of a doctor's visit and individual physiotherapy, "then there were days when they did not visit me at all or came to me  with a significant delay (in particular - Elena), which entailed the admission or reduction of rehabilitation procedures, changing the schedule, etc. - The rehabilitation is rather weak, at first there were only 2 procedures a day, physiotherapy individual and group, after my repeated  requests, during the third week of stay, more procedures were added, however it was already the final week and, for example, a massage duration of 10 minutes a session, was only 2 times for the entire period of rehabilitation. I recommend to all who plan treatment, to keep this moment under the control and remind the concierges about the need to add to the schedule of additional procedures, for some reason they themselves are not particularly concerned about this, despite the rather large, in general, cost of rehabilitation. Two of my friends have already refused treatment in this clinic, after my recall, in favor of German clinics, where although slightly and more expensive, but the services are performed in full and without extra reminders.
