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.

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

«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.
