What is melanoma?

Melanoma is a malignant disease that develops from melanocytes (pigment cells) and can occur in every part of the body. Particular danger of melanoma consists in quick metastasizing.

Melanoma development process is still unclear but specialists underline such risk factors as inherited predisposition, UV radiation and nevus injury.

Types of melanoma

Oncologists classify melanoma according to the level of its invasion (Clark’s scale), thickness (Breslow’s scale), appearance and development scheme.

According to cell types melanoma is divided into:

  • superficial melanoma;
  • nodular melanoma;
  • lentigo melanoma;
  • acral lentiginous melanoma;
  • spindle cell melanoma.

Symptoms of melanoma

Early stages of melanoma are often asymptomatic. A patient can notice development of a new nevus or change of existing nevus (redness, increase). Later stages comprise weight loss, weakness, increase of lymph nodes, etc.

Diagnostics

Complex diagnostics of melanoma includes investigation of the patient’s past medical history, examination of suspicious nevus with dermatoscope and of adjusting lymph nodes. Cancer-specific markers blood test and biopsy can be provided for specification of malignant nature of the disease. If a patient refers to a doctor at later stages comprising metastases, CT, PET-CT or MRI are provided to determine the scope and location of metastases.

Treatment of melanoma at each stage

Medical specialists develop individual program for each case considering general health condition of a patient and specifics of the disease.

Stage 0 involves surgical removal of a tumor. If surgery cannot be performed, topical therapy is applied.

Stage 1 melanoma treatment includes surgical excision of affected nevus with surrounding skin tissues.

For stage 2 melanoma treatment doctors provide expanded tumor excision with biopsy of signal lymph node. Some patients receive interferon alpha as adjuvant drug.

Stage 3 melanoma treatment comprises removal of both tumor and signal lymph node and tumor masses combined with chemo-, beam or combined therapy.

For stage 4 melanoma treatment doctors apply immune, targeted and chemotherapy. Metastases are removed surgically or by using radiotherapy or medication.

Melanoma treatment cost

Melanoma treatment cost depends on many factors:

  • melanoma type;
  • size of tumor;
  • metastases in organism;
  • necessary diagnostic procedures;
  • treatment method;
  • price policy of the hospital in the particular country.

Each melanoma patient receives individual diagnostic and treatment program comprising all these factors.

The patient underwent hip replacement

Hello! My name is Tamara, I am from Tbilisi. I applied to Bookimed with such a complex disorder as coxarthrosis of the hip. I suffered from this disorder during long time. I was born with congenital dislocation of the hip which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then, my family and I were in a car accident and my right hip was broken. I was treated during long time, had skeletal extension, then plaster, the therapy lasted two years until Dr. Ilizarov G.A. installed me Ilizarov apparatus. It was 35 years ago, since that I have finished my studies, got married, born children and grown them up. And I did not feel any inconvenience. Three years ago I felt an acute pain which did not let me neither walk nor sleep and made obstructions to my ordinary life. When I underwent a complete examination and had all tests, I was told that a surgery is the only solution. As I wanted to walk during the rest of my life without any complications and infections and had a guarantee, which our surgeons could not provide me (I don’t want to offend them), I have chosen this particular hospital. I found many clinics in Internet. Several hospitals in Germany and Israel offered me their assistance but for some reason I decided in favour of Helios Hospital in Hamburg. Medical experience of Professor Thorsten Herke inspired me confidence: he has made surgeries to many Georgian patients who can normally walk, ride a bicycle, drive and move at the moment. My choice was also influenced by presence of physiotherapist Sergei Karsten who practices all types of rehabilitation. He uses his own technique of massage and physical therapy. He knows how to develop joints to avoid stiffness of the body and to provide a full range of movements.

I had severe pains while walking and having load on my hips which limited my movements and Kazakh therapists proposed me only administration of strong analgesics. I did not receive physiotherapy and almost could not move I heard about good quality of German clinics and first of all that patients make a good recovery. Kazakh doctors believe that after installation of hip prosthesis normal range of movements can be achieved only in 6 months, but here I could start walking in several weeks after the surgery. I considered a treatment in Israel. Price policy there is almost the same as in Germany but there is no system of rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation therapy similar to German. I found a private clinic HELIOS-Endo. I was convinced both by reputation of the hospital and good reviews of Kazakhs who were treated there. I expected that after my treatment in Helios I can walk without pain. And regardless that I had the surgery less than two weeks ago, my condition has greatly improved. I am very satisfied with the result. Professor Gerke made my surgery and I want to express my gratitude to him. Besides excellent surgery and regardless extreme occupation, he paid me a lot of attention. I felt safe in the hospital.

The patient was treated of

I was diagnosed with hemophthalmos and urgently needed an operation vitrectomy. I could not find doctor who could make this operation. I turned to the internet for help and found Bookimed. They answered me quickly, my doctor was coordinator Ivan Koval. After very short time I received all necessary information and program of treatment. I was very lucky with coordinator, he is a professional, friendly, diligent and responsible doctor. I came on tourist visa to Fortis clinic which is located in India, New Delhi. The Fortis clinic I immediately did not like. Interpreters are not serious, medical personnel seemed to me not very responsible, laws changed, the coordination of the clinic was awful. After examination I was refused to do surgery on a tourist visa, it was necessary to get medical visa which needed additional 15 days and a lot of money as Fortis doctors told me, so I was very nervous. All the time my doctor was the coordinator for communication with clinic, he called me every 10 min to ask how are you, how are you feeling, talking to the medical staff the clinic, he was very worried too. At the same day Ivan Koval found another clinic in Bangalore and Dr. Priya who brought me from Delhi to Bangalore that night. And then I had two good responsible doctors, Dr. Priya and Dr. Koval, who found the best surgeons for me. Thanks a lot for that!!! In Bangalore I was very warmly welcomed by the staff of the hospital and taken to Manipal where I waited for good, responsive, cute and beautiful hospital personnel . They carefully examined me and my eyes, appointed the time of surgeryi. At day of operation I had no doubt that my operation will be great. Otherwise could not be. My surgical doctors were the most experienced, responsible, sensitive and highly qualified doctors in the world. Operation went very easily and well, I did not feel much pain after surgery. I was happy when the next day doctors removed the blindfold, my eyes began to see as before)) This was my second birth. even tears of joy rolled down my face. My doctors were Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty and Dr. Nitin S. Shetty. I express my heartfelt gratitude to my favorite doctors and the entire staff of Manipal for perfect and noble work that is so important to people. I was very pleased to feel a lot of attention, sympathy and understanding! A low bow to you for the tremendous, competent force in saving our lives!

The patient was treated of viral hepatitis c

After a blood transfusion in Kherson I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. Analysis showed a viral load of 88,000, there was a heaviness in the liver. When the doctor in infectious diseases hospital explained perspectives - I was horrified. Effective antiviral drugs are not registered, and the order in Europe need a long time to come and is expensive for hepatitis. Familiar doctor advised treatment in India, where these drugs are much cheaper, as well as comprehensive tests. I came to the Manipal clinic and paid less than $ 2,000 for all, bought there Hepcinat (Indian version of sofosbuvir). The liver does not hurt, now I wait for test results.

The patient underwent artificial insemination ivf

Me and my husband wanted to have a second child. We went through IVF in Russia, but there was no good results. Then we started to look for a profitable option abroad and decided to go to India, at the time of vacation. The Manipal doctors did their work for ridiculous money and a short time. Already a year has passed after my return from India, so I share impressions while the baby is sleeping. I was afraid of the terrible service and living conditions, but staying at Manipal proved to be like real Europe.
