Good afternoon! I am grateful to Konstantin for advising me on this clinic.  For the past 7 months I've been there I'm paying special thanks to the coordinator of Victoria and thanks to the whole team. Victoria is not only the coordinator of my treatment in the clinic, but she has become for me a very close person with whom one can consult, who can "weep in the vest." During the treatment, if necessary, she provided me with transportation, mostly free of charge. I tried to save my money if possible. Organized a convenient for me schedule of visits, consultations of doctors and medical procedures. The clinic has excellent qualified doctors and the latest equipment. To other patients who want to be treated at this clinic, I can say with certainty that thanks to the coordinator of Victoria and her team, they will receive not only qualified medical care, but also warm human relations and help in the organization of treatment.

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

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 !!!

The patient was treated of brain tumor

In January, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I was shocked, and with trembling hands I began to search for treatment options. From the first minute of conversation with a representative of honey. I started to calm down and look at the whole picture more clearly. In the clinic I was accompanied and helped in everything. Remarkable Dr. Zibli explained everything in all the details and the professional translation of Dianochka (my escort) was simply impeccable. The treatment is successful and I am full of hope.

Rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel

Rhabdomyosarcoma develops from a transversely striated (skeletal) muscle and is a colony of modified muscle cells (myocytes). In a result of a number of successive divisions, tumor elements are simplified and become similar to embryonic cells (precursors of muscles) that are rabdomioblasts. The longer the tumor does not being treat, the worse the prognosis for life is as there is the higher risk of metastasing and organ damage around tumors.

In two-thirds of cases, rhabdomyosarcoma affects the children up to 10 years, mainly boys (girls’ rate is in 2 times lower). Overwhelming majority of the illness cases (90%) is up to the age of 25 years.

Types of rhabdomyosarcoma:

  • embryonic rhabdomyosarcoma is typical for children and it affects the head and neck;
  • alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma develops mainly in adolescents. It affects the large skeletal muscles (quadriceps, triceps, back muscles);
  • botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma affects the muscle wall of the internal organs (vagina, urine bladder).

Cost of rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel?

Only in Israel

  • assistance is provided by experts of global renown;
  • there are specialized clinics for the treatment of various types of sarcomas; Diagnosticians and oncologists of Israel know all the peculiarities of this type of tumors;
  • they use the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment;
  • excellent survival rates and curability of patients;
  • all-day care, patient and family support programs.
70% is an average survival index.
90% of full recovery by early treatment.

Causes of rhabdomyosarcoma

Major risk factors contributing to the development of rhabdomyosarcoma:

  • the irradiation of a mother or a child, especially during pregnancy;
  • concomitant genetic abnormalities as Li-Fraumeni syndrome, albinism or neurofibromatosis. The process is more common for children with a giant melanocytic nevus;
  • constant contact with carcinogens (including food) and toxic substances.

Rhabdomyosarcoma usually develops in people with immunodeficiency. People infected with HIV, TB, children with any form of anemia are the most vulnerable. It is necessary to pay attention to the children previously treated with chemotherapy. In some cases, rhabdomyosarcoma develops after leukemia.

Symptoms of rhabdomyosarcoma

  • some tumors above the skin surface. They are painless and aren’t red; subdermal formation is dense and elastic;
  • after a while, there is some pain due to compression of the nerve endings by growing tumor;
  • bleeding and ulceration of sarcoma may occur;
  • regional lymph nodes are increased;
  • weakness is developing, the body weight is decreasing. There may be some intestinal dysmotility, nausea, loss of appetite.

Depending on the location of the main tumor, the disease manifests itself as follows:

  • unilateral exophthalmos (proptotic eyes) due to the location of rhabdomyosarcoma in the orbit;
  • blood-tinged discharges from the ear canal when the tumor is in the middle ear;
  • nose bleedings, nasal congestion when the tumor is in the nasal passages;
  • scrotal edema, blood in semen;
  • blood in the urine, the symptoms of cystitis (painful urination, pain шт lower abdomen) when the urine bladder wall is affected.

The symptoms at different stages of rhabdomyosarcoma:

Stage 1

Stage 2

nearly invisible tumor, no local reactions

visible (subdermal) tumor, some pain, redding

Stage 3

Stage 4

intense pain, enlarged lymph nodes

damage and dysfunction of organs, metastasing

Rhabdomyosarcoma diagnostics in Israel

  • the main method of rhabdomyosarcoma diagnostics is an MRI. The method allows to precisely localize the process, its relationship with the surrounding structures. Tumor is located deeply in the soft tissues and is not very different from the structure, so radiographic techniques are less effective;
  • MSCT for metastases screening and localization;
  • PET-CT for the determination of small foci of metastasis;
  • Ultrasound is used as a preliminary screening. As a rule, ultrasound is used with Doppler sonography;
  • scintigraphy is used for the diagnostics of bone metastases;
  • biopsy is used to determine the type of tumor. it does not only confirms the diagnosis, but also affects the intensity and duration of chemotherapy (it determines the invasiveness of the process and makes prognosis);
  • searching for tumor markers in the blood helps to confirm the ongoing process if there are difficulties in finding the primary focus.

Methods of rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel

Israeli oncologists achieve excellent results even with common processes (3A-B stage):

  • surgical treatment. The entire tumor or most of it is removed (if the complete excision is not possible), as well as regional lymph nodes, and concerned tissues and organs;
  • chemotherapy of rhabdomyosarcoma. Israeli chemotherapists use innovative combinations of cytostatics and hormones, that increases the sensitivity of the tumor to treatment. On the 4th stage of the disease it is the main method. Targeted chemotherapy helps to achieve the maximum concentration of drug in the tumor body;
  • radiation therapy is applying in 2 months after chemotherapy. The impact is produced on the operated area of the body. With rhabdomyosarcoma of the central nervous system, radiation therapy is applied before chemotherapy;
  • transplantation of bone marrow stem cells. It is used due to destroying own stem cells by the necessary for the treatment doses of chemotherapy. When transplantation is possible, your doctor may significantly increase the dosage of chemotherapy drugs with no hesitating of subsequent complications such as aplastic anemia.

Review: a four-month-old infant with rhabdomyosarcoma

When my son was 4 months, doctors have found rhabdomyosarcoma. We had conducted 4 courses of chemotherapy and two surgeries, then aplastic anemia began. The doctor said that haemopoiesis was disrupted and we needed a bone marrow transplantation.

After the examination of relatives, it turned out that my brother can be a bone marrow donor. We have conducted stem cell transplantation.

Now the boy is 2 years old, he is often sick, but there are no tumor signs anymore. We take drugs (necessary for normal functioning of the transplanted bone marrow).”

Rehabilitation after rhabdomyosarcoma removal, prevention of recurrence

Prediction for patients depends on the process stage. Even at the 4th stage, the five-year survival rate exceeds 30% (alveolar form of the disease). Careful attention to a patient after surgery and intensive chemotherapy allows to achieve full cure in 70% of all patients with rhabdomyosarcoma.

It is recommended to make regular visits to the oncologist (every 2 months during the first year after surgery) and periodic screening of tissues:

  • in the area of the removed tumor;
  • plain radiography of thoracic organs;
  • liver ultrasound.

Two recent studies allow quick identifying metastases in the process expansion.

Cost of rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel

  • Prices for cancer center services in Israel are controlled by the state. This allows you to plan ahead the medical tour and optimize costs;
  • The cost of treatment is 20% lower than in Switzerland, the USA and Germany (the national average);
  • Bookimed company helps to avoid payment of intermediaries, that significantly reduce the overall cost of treatment;
  • High level of service due to which the patient and his/her family receive all the necessary support during treatment and the rehabilitation period.

The patient was treated in this clinic

I liked it all very much. A modern building, there is a parking near, a beautiful form of the staff. They are courteous and considerate. Knowing Latvian, it is not so easy for me to describe some of the nuances (I do not talk much with anyone about these topics), but meeting me, they spoke with me in my native language. I gave an assessment of "good", but still had to evaluate "excellent." Perhaps, because the prices for a pensioner are too high.

The patient underwent facial rejuvenation

Dear All, I just wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for the wonderful treatment and care you all showed to me following my and my wife recent Treatment . Before I came into hospital for the treatment, I was very nervous and daunted by the fear of the unknown but you were all so kind and reassuring when I arrived which took away a lot of my apprehension. You demonstrated your total commitment into caring for me and my wife and also gave us the support and encouragement we needed to take our first steps on the road to our treatment which meant so much to me. I’d like to particularly thank Dr.Fahad Mawlood, Dr.Yaroslav and Marta who provided me with round the clock nursing care .These were members of the team whom I saw on a daily basis and whom I became particularly close to during my stay in the hospital. However, I’d also like to thank all the other people, too numerous to mention, who all played such an important part in my treatment and recovery. As doctors you’ve gone above and beyond everything I ever would have expected. The world would be a much better place if all of the doctors were like you. Thank you so much for everything that you have done. Because God could not be everywhere he made sure that we have doctors like you who have the gift of healing mankind. I am so thankful to you for treating me so tenderly. I feel very healthy now. Thank you so very much. Thank you all once again for all your care and support.
