We asked Liv Hospital for help...

Peculiarities of pancreatic cancer treatment in Turkey

  • To identify tumor at a 1st stage considered to be a rare case and is a great piece of luck for the patient. Turkish oncologists in this case use microsurgery methods and the formation is removed endoscopically. To remove the local tumor a non-invasive (without cuts) radiosurgery method as Gamma Knife System is applied;
  • 2-3 stage involves the Whipple surgery – a widespread removal of tumor tissue and the head (or the tail) of the gland. In Turkey, the similar surgeries are conducted by means of a robotic assistant “da Vinci";
  • At the 4th stage, surgeons restore the passableness of intestinal canal and bile ducts. Methods of chemotherapy, including targeted exposure by aggressive agents are applied to the tumor irradiation.

Cost of pancreatic cancer treatment in Turkey

  • JCI Accreditation Standards are combined with affordable prices, which are 2 times lower than in the USA and by 40% than in Israel or Germany;

Questions and answers

Symptoms of pancreatic cancer

The danger of this type of cancer lie in the symptoms that appear only at the late stages of cancer:

  • Jaundice development due to the compression of the ducts;
  • Weakness is developed, body weight is decreased, dysfunction of sleep and appetite;
  • Pain in the right hypochondrium, shooting up the lumbar, which is typical for pancreatitis. If the patient and the doctor are inattentive, cancer can be absconded as an inflammation;
  • Defecation discolors;
  • The skin begins to itch, in time itching becomes stronger;
  • Urine darkens.

Turkish oncological centers are fitted with high-power equipment, allowing to identify pancreatic cancer at the early stages. The surgical base gives an opportunity to remove the tumor, even with metastases in regional lymph nodes and duct cancer.

Diagnostics in Turkey

The country annually invests in material equipment and training of the doctors from diagnostic departments (the state program). The Turkish clinic has the most modern equipment:

  • Consultation is lead by an experienced oncological surgeon;
  • High-field MR scanners, diagnosing the tumors at the stage T1;
  • MSCT, allowing to determine the metastases in the surrounding tissues;
  • PET CT diagnose small foci of abnormal cells;
  • Ultrasound of thoracic organs and Doppler imaging of blood vessels of the abdomen allow to easily determine the condition of the patient.
