Treatment of thyroid cancer in Israel

Thyroid cancer is a rare oncological disease with a very high chance of being cured. The disease affects the thyroid gland, the organ is situated just below the larynx and is responsible for the growth of certain types of cells and the entire organism, as well as generating some hormones, including thyroxine and calcitonin.

There are several types of the disease:

  • The most common type is papillary thyroid cancer (about 75% of all cases). It typically affects a part of the thyroid gland. It is differentiated by a slow development, so is best curable. Mortality rate from this form of cancer is minimal.
  • Follicular thyroid cancer. It occurs in 15% of all patients. Its appearance is closely related to iodine deficiency. At metastasizing, it is seldom affects the lymph nodes but can penetrate into the lungs and the skeletal system. Prognosis for cure are high.
  • Medullary thyroid cancer makes up about 8% of all patients. It originates from the cells, which produce the hormone calcitonin. It can metastasize the lymph nodes, liver, kidneys and other organs. It is hard-to-treat.
  • Anaplastic thyroid cancer is a very rare. As a rule, it progresses against the background of already existing forms of cancer – papillary and medullary. It develops rapidly and aggressively, metastasizing the cervical lymph nodes and other organs, making the treatment inveterate.

Women tend to suffer from thyroid carcinoma almost three times more often than men. Age group of disease incidence is quite young – 65% of patients have not reached 55 years of age. In addition, about 2% of the patients are children and teenagers.

Methods of treatment of thyroid cancer in Israel

The foreground treatment method of tumor of thyroid cancer is its removal by surgery. Depending on the desolation of the disease, besides the tumor, the part of or the whole gland can be removed. Furthermore, the affected lymph nodes in the neck are also removed at the surgery. It should be noted that Israeli doctors practice organ-preserving approach.

After the surgery, the following treatment methods are applied:

  • Radioiodine therapy is an administration of a capsule with radioactive iodine to the organism. The method is based on the properties of cancer cells to accumulate this substance that destroys them in itself.
  • Hormone therapy is an administration of thyroxine, a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. It is carried out to replace and suppress the remaining cancer cells after surgery.

At the later stages of the disease the treatment is carried out using the following methods:

  • Radiation therapy. If tumors are small, the Gamma Knife can be used.
  • Chemotherapy is an administration of a highly toxic drugs to kill cancer cells.
  • Targeted therapy is the use of drugs to block the production of enzymes, involved in the division and growth of cancer cells.
