Symptoms of sarcoma

Sarcoma is a non-epithelial (it is not a cancer if to say roughly) malignant tumor that can occur in almost any part of the tissue. Symptoms depend on the type of disease, the formation and size of the surrounding tissue. Typically, this means the compression of the nerve tracts or blood vessels:

  • Osteosarcoma is manifested with night pain that react poorly to analgesics;
  • The compression of the blood vessels leads to the expansion of superficial veins on the skin;
  • There may be a respiratory malfunction if the trachea is compressed.

Oncologists in Israel are knowledgeable in the types and potential risks of different types of sarcomas. The experience of diagnosticians and oncological surgeons of the country present the excellent survival rates of these patients.

  • Israeli oncological centers use highly-precise MSCT and powerful MRI devices. As a rule, all devices are interworked. The evaluation of pictures involve Masters of Medicine, Doctors of Medical Science and Professors of Medicine.

This approach allows to save the limb, and in severe cases to make reconstructive surgery and the installation of the implant;
  • The 4th stage of the sarcoma of any kind is considered as inoperable in most countries. In Israel it is possible to conduct surgery at this stage with good results of 5-year survival. Simultaneously, the methods of chemotherapy, radiation, immunological impact on the tumor are used.
