    Argon Beamer Procedure – non-invasive endoscopic operation, when argon gas, coming out of the tube, “evaporates” the malignant tissue. This option allows to retain much of the unaffected areas of lung tissue and accelerate the patient’s recovery.

    • Radiosurgery, namely, Gamma-Knife. Advantages: simultaneous effect, high conformity degree, no surgical risks.
    • At stages 3 - 4, pulmonectomy (removal of particular segments, lobes or the whole lung) or bronchial stenting are applied along with chemotherapy.

    Before selecting the final treatment plan, cancer metastases diagnostics are conducted by endoscopic biopsy of the local lymph nodes. During the treatment process each patient may stay in ward with a close relative or friend.

    The cost of lung cancer treatment

    The treatment procedures costs from € 35,000 to 44,000. Price depends on the stage of disease, method of care and additional features on demand.

Lung cancer - best treatment options abroad

Lung cancer is one of the most common oncological malignancies that develops from the lung cells. It ranks first in the world by prevalence and mortality among men.

To date, lung cancer is divided into four stages. Commonly cancer is detected when the stage 3 has already developed. Since the stage when the cancer is diagnosed often determines the 5-year survival for patients (see table below), early diagnostics is prevalent to the successful cure of lung cancer.

What are the diagnostics for lung cancer?

Today, according to NCCN, annual LDCT examination reduces the risk of death from lung cancer by 20%. Chest x-ray, comparing to the LDCT, does not allow to detect early stages of cancer when there is still a high probability of the successful outcome.

Among diagnostics are also used:

  • Pulmonary functional test;
  • Bronchoscopy;
  • FDG PET/CT.

Treatment for lung cancer

There are three standard approaches to the treatment of cancer, and lung cancer is no exception. These are surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy in different combinations.

Treatment abroad in the best clinics allows to apply advanced treatments for lung cancer:

  • VATS - video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, which takes place in the early stages of lung cancer, is proven to reduce mortality compared with open lobectomy (NCCN);
  • In addition to standard methods of radiation therapy (CT-planned 3D-CRT), several certified clinics apply advanced methods - 4D-CT and/or PET/CT simulation, IMRT/VMAT, IGRT, motion management, proton therapy.

I honestly do not regret, and even happy that she did. Firstly, it is not so expensive, and secondly, the... Read full review
