What is pancreatic cancer?

Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive malignant tumor that affects the pancreas - an organ that produces digestive enzymes and hormones. А tumor usually occurs in the head of the pancreas (in 50-60% of cases), in its body (10%) or tail (5-8%) and spreads to the liver, peritoneal cavity, and lungs.

There are 20 types of pancreatic tumors. The most common, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, accounts for about 85% of cases. Less common is neuroendocrine cancer (only 2%).

The patient was treated in this clinic

There was an accident in Germany! and came out so. What did I get to the hospital? I received a hemothorax lung injury (lung injury) and a break of the trapezoidal (dorsal) muscles from the right side. He was in the office of Robert-Koch-Klinik. Care and attention are excellent. I stayed 13 days. For the operation (cleaning of the lung), I was given an invoice amounting to 10 842 EURO. I did not know nem.yazyka.Poetomu could not tell anyone what's bothering me. In this regard, I have complications with health. Headache. Noise in ears. And the general decline of forces. And every day it gets worse. I do not know how it ends. Our doctors only shrug their shoulders! Not knowing the German, there can not be treated. A translator is not provided!

The patient underwent check-up

Everything is well and clearly organized. accepted professors and heads of departments. The technician is gorgeous. The professor does both the uzi and immediately take the blood, and absolutely does not depend on when and what you ate before that. Several diagnoses delivered at home were not confirmed. Relation to patients, regardless of the nation , equally kind and attentive. Certainly expensive. Sometimes tens of times than would cost the house, but it is better to go through the examination there once in three years than to wander from doctor to doctor for weeks at a time here and as a result get vague diagnoses and an incomprehensible treatment e. Thank you for the organization and efficiency.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

My 6-year old son was diagnosed with epilepsy. We couldn’t find an appropriate specialist in Czech Republic who could adequately assign medical treatment for 6 months. So, my wife and I decided to go for diagnostics and treatment abroad. To do this we turned to Bookimed company with a request to find and recommend us a specialized clinic that has a possibility to examine our child. Our coordinator Zeeshan Zaman offered several clinics. After a joint discussion we chose the Teknon Clinic in Barcelona and we’re totally satisfied with treatment! Antonio Russi consulted us and made all the tests. With prescribed medication my son doesn’t have any seizures at all.

First impressions of my arrival - I am very satisfied with the service. We were greeted, brought, promised what they had done to us - they did everything. We have a phone, when we do not understand something, we phone and the interpreter immediately comes to us. I really like it here. And they gave us hope that they will help us here and I really believe in it. We have already done PET, MRI, blood donated and for the fourth day we are watching video monitoring. We asked Bukimed to find us a clinic that could help us, then we sent all our data and they offered us Spain. They said that this is one of the best clinics in general. They helped one woman from Kiev, I called her and she said: "do not go anywhere, just come here!" - because they were in other clinics.

I am 63 years old, at home, in Kazakhstan I was diagnosed with "epilepsy". Every 20 days I had seizures. We do not have an epileptologist at home. Then, with the help of Bookimed, thanks to Alina Honest, who advised Dr. Antonio Russi and the clinic Tecnon. All the time she accompanied us with consultations, contacted the clinic in Spain, in particular with Dr. Antonio Russi. I was in the clinic of Technon (Spain) in October 2017, Dr. Antonio Russi only flew from the conference, and immediately, almost from the plane, visited us. We talked about everything and agreed to start the diagnosis in the morning. In the morning he explained the whole procedure. We have undergone MRI, EEG, PET, PET (FDG), etc. Always answered all the questions posed clearly and grammatically. During the PEP we were picked up by pills, we tried 9 different drugs, of which 2 came up to us. Now I take these pills at home. In general, while in the clinic, everything was at the highest level: service, and so on. Even after diagnosis he contacts me via Skype, asks questions, gives advice, answers questions. I express huge gratitude to Doctor Antonio Russi, he is a doctor from God, a real professional! Coryphaeus of his work! Health to him and his family, happiness, success. With the help of his technique and selection of the right drugs, there are practically no seizures. I advise everyone to contact him.

Symptoms and diagnostics of pancreatic cancer

There are no symptoms in the early stages. Even in case of metastasis they are non-specific. Advanced stages can cause lack of appetite and weight loss.

Other symptoms of pancreatic cancer in the later stages:

  • severe pain in the upper abdomen;
  • nausea, vomiting;
  • urine darkening;
  • jaundice (yellowing of eyes and skin);
  • diarrhea or constipation;
  • apathy, fatigue.

The disease is often found at advanced stages because early signs are similar to other conditions like gastritis and gallstones.

If you have these symptoms - visit your doctor as soon as possible. It is important to undergo all test that are needed for diagnosis.

In the best pancreatic cancer hospital diagnostics of pancreatic cancer include:

  • CT scan;
  • MRI;
  • endoscopic ultrasound;
  • biopsy.

1,000 people are diagnosed with this disease daily. The 5-year survival rate for this type of cancer is only 5%, so it is important to receive treatment as soon as possible from the top pancreatic cancer specialists (medical oncologist, surgeon).

Risk factors

The precise causes of pancreatic cancer have not been determined but there are several factors that can influence the likelihood of pancreatic tumor development. Those are:

  • Hereditary factors - genetics and family history.
  • Age - 90% of patients diagnosed with this disease are older than 55.
  • Race - African-Americans are more likely to develop a tumor.
  • Smoking.

Stages of pancreatic cancer treatment

Lengths of treatment process depends on the location of cancer in the pancreas, how big it is, whether it has spread.

  • Diagnosis of pancreatic cancer takes up to 3 days.
  • The surgery takes from 6-12 hours.
  • Post-surgery recovery requires a 7- to 10-day stay in the hospital.
  • If a patient stays in hospital for chemotherapy, the amounts of days depends on the number of courses prescribed.

pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer treatment options

Pancreatic cancer is aggressive, rapidly spreads and affects the vital organs of the gastrointestinal tract. In the early stages of the disease, surgical intervention is the most effective treatment.

But only 25% of all patients can be operated due to the complex anatomy of the organ and vast metastasis.

Leave a request and our Doctors-Coordinators will find the best treatment option in your particular case.

The type of surgery depends on the pancreatic lesion:

  • Pancreatectomy (surgical removal of the pancreas). It is performed if cancer affected body and tail of the organ. It can be:
    - distal pancreatectomy (removal of the bottom half of the pancreas);
    - segmental pancreatectomy (resection of the middle part of the pancreas);
    - total pancreatectomy (entire pancreas).
  • Whipple procedure (pancreaticoduodenectomy). It is performed if cancer affected the head of the pancreas. A surgeon removes pancreas along with the gallbladder, duodenum, parts of the bile duct and stomach.
  • Pancreaticoduodenectomy with extended retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy - Whipple procedure with additional lymph nodes removal.

After resection, almost 20% of patients need the 2nd operation to restore the connection between the stomach and duodenum.

NanoKnife for pancreatic cancer

NanoKnife is a form of ablation used for localized pancreatic cancer. It can be performed during surgical intervention or as a stand-alone procedure. NanoKnife kills cancer cells with an electric current without the risk of damage to organs and blood vessels. According to data from 6 surgical centers in the United States (published in the issue of the Annals of Surgery), NanoKnife ablation can double the survival rate in pancreatic cancer patients.

Advanced stages treatment options

In later stages of pancreatic cancer and in cases where surgical intervention impossible to perform, oncologists use chemo- and radiation therapy (or combination of both).

Chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer

Chemotherapy can be given before surgery (as neoadjuvant treatment) to shrink the tumor. And after surgery (adjuvant) to destroy remaining cancer cells.

Pancreatic tumors are resistant to treatment with conventionally used chemotherapy. That is why medical oncologists in best pancreatic cancer treatment centers use special regimens, prescribing FOLFOX and FOLFIRINOX - a combination of 3 and 4 chemotherapy drugs respectively.

Radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer

Radiation therapy method that is often used to treat pancreatic cancer is called “External beam radiation therapy” and carried out through Gamma Knife system. It focuses radiation from an outside source precisely on the tumor sparing the surrounding tissues.

HIPEC for pancreatic cancer

The Hyperthermic Intraoperative Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) is not used for pancreatic cancer. In some cases it can be performed as part of abdominal metastasis treatment for patients with peritoneal cancer. HIPEC procedure is not in international medical treatment protocols (NCCN).

Palliative therapy

In case of last stages, physicians use palliative methods, which can significantly improve and prolong the life of a patient, including:

  • surgery;
  • prevention of gastric obstruction;
  • pain relief;
  • psychological care.

What are the best hospitals for pancreatic cancer treatment?

Worlds best treatment centers for pancreatic cancer are large hospitals in Germany, Turkey, Spain, and Israel. Medical Centers with specialized departments, like International Center for the Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer in Freiburg (Germany) which is considered the best hospital for pancreatic cancer by medical experts worldwide.

Since surgery is the main treatment option even for advanced cancer, the best pancreatic cancer hospital is where the best oncological surgeons are.

Regardless of stage surgery remains the main treatment method. So the choice of clinic should be based on the surgeon who will carry out the operation.

I, Elman Mammadov, came to be treated, to be examined in Turkey. Found Liv Hospital through the Ukrainian site Bukimed. And then I was prescribed a checkup, found my illness. I was in other countries before that, but I was not diagnosed with an accurate diagnosis. Thanks to this hospital, I made all sorts of analyzes within 15 days and thanks to Dr. Aidan Tandoğan Sarp we found my illness. Here we were helped primarily by the coordinator of Malik - thanks to her, her work is very large. Thank you all, the whole staff of the hospital.

The patient underwent dental implant

Hello. My name is Sergey Pletnev. On the recommendation of the employee Bukimed, Vadim Berezhny, I was sent for treatment to the dental department of the Liv Hospitals Clinic in Istanbul. During the treatment, I was given 12 implants in one session. During the session, I did not experience a single pain. Due to high-quality work of employees and professional skills, very high professional qualities of medical staff of the dental department, we achieved such results that in almost 5 days I was delivered 12 implants, temporary bridges. The final result will need to be talked much later - three months. But, nevertheless, now with confidence I can say that the collective of Liv Hospital, their professional qualities are at the highest level. Plus - magnificent, modern equipment and a wonderful attitude towards the patient. With pleasure in three months I will return to this clinic in order to establish finally the crowns on my implants.

The patient underwent dental implant

I came to the LIV Hospital of Istanbul for dental treatment. I was placed crowns of teeth on the upper and lower jaw. Liv Hospital gives me a guarantee for the use of these prostheses. I applied via the Internet (Bookimed) asking me to give several directions. Appealed to Israel and Belarus and Moscow, but eventually stopped at the Liv Hospital. Together with specialists, we decided to implant 12 implants. For the price I was very happy and got a wonderful result. I am very satisfied with the specialists and the hospital itself, because the approach was very professional at all stages. I am grateful to all specialists of the clinic! Special thanks to my curator - Elena Izmailova. Thank you I'm glad!

A couple of words about how the bukimed advised us with the hospital: we filed an application with a specific problem, and on the same day we received a call from the consultant Ivan, exactly one day we were offered three hospital options in Europe with a full description of the doctors and the cost of treatment. A week later we were already in Germany at a reception with Professor Dr. Hensch, the consultation was held at a very high level. Now my aunt is being treated and I'm sure that the treatment will be successful.)) I think the aunt will tell in more detail after full recovery.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer

By a lucky chance fell into the hands of experienced doctors of the South Korean medical center "Samsung". I was already preparing for an operation in Moscow - I had an ovarian cancer, predictions were 50-50. Our doctors are always afraid to take on extra responsibility for the operation. If something goes wrong in the end, they will refer to the fact that not those 50 percent fell out and that's it. Suddenly it turned out that my father had agreed without my knowledge that I would be put on an operation in the center of Samsung in South Korea. At first I thought I was joking - well, what kind of treatment can there be in the clinic with the name, like a TV set. But Dad insisted that I go there at least for a consultation. It turned out that this is one of the largest medical centers of South Korea with a worldwide reputation. I was examined by doctors from Korea and the United States. They made an impression on me that I can completely entrust my life to them, although I did not always pay much attention to doctors. I'm not talking about the most up-to-date equipment! Korea and in medicine justifies its leadership in the field of world technology. I had a brilliant operation, as I believe. Although for those doctors - it's their usual job. After anesthesia, I did not feel any pain. Postoperative observations showed that the tumor was completely removed. In six months I'll go there again for medical examination. I am absolutely sure that I won this terrible disease with the help of Korean doctors!

The patient was treated of liver cancer

In 2013, we came to Seoul for treatment in the Samsun clinic with a father who was diagnosed with "Education in the liver, a size 5.5 by 5 mm" in Russia. In the Korean clinic, the father underwent a complete examination in 2 days, all in one place, without queue, by appointment and time: CT, MRI, PET, FGDS and colonoscopy with sleeping pills, biopsy of education, oncomarkers, ECG, X-ray.

After that he was diagnosed: "Hepatocellular carcinoma without metastases." The father was touched by the caring and careful attitude of the medical staff during the procedures, while everyone was clearly engaged in his own business. With such tumor sizes and with such localization (in the center), usually the surgical method is not shown, radioablation also does not fit, only chemotherapy, to which the tumor is not sensitive. The prognosis was pessimistic, the father's life time was estimated at 2-3 months. But at the consultation of a radiologist, chemotherapist and surgeons, it was decided to carry out the operation, since it was the only chance to survive the patient. They warned his father about the high risk, the technical difficulties of the operation due to the localization and size of the tumor. Father, of course, was in shock, he could not believe that he had a malignant tumor, and that everything was so serious. After all, he did not feel this tumor: he had no pain anywhere, his appetite was normal, he did not lose weight, there was only a small weakness, which he wrote off for age (70 years). This is the cunning of cancer - no symptoms! Only an annual preventive examination from the top to the heel can reveal the cancer at an early stage. We agreed to an operation. Operated by Dr. Kim. The operation lasted 6 hours.

Everything went well. Six days after the operation, we flew home. What amazed me about in Korea?

When I saw how the healthcare system works in Korea, I immediately relaxed, and I had full confidence in doctors and medical personnel. Everyone clearly did his job. For one nurse 2 patients, she practically did not leave them day and night. I did not have to take care of my father, everything was done by medical staff.

It was unusual that relatives were twice a day run to patients in intensive care, and without any shoe covers and masks. But the most amazing thing is that on the second day after such a difficult operation, my father walked around the corridor all day long!

Has noted kindness of Koreans, modesty, patience, diligence, the valid relation to the doctor. The doctor said once and everything, no one argues, does not ask again, does not follow him, if there are questions - sign up for a reception and wait. A very clear organization of working time and subordination, and hence culture.

I want to thank Dr. Kim again for his golden hands, the doctor who led the first reception, a very intelligent, literate and sincere person. All this time we had a Russian coordinator next to us, who translated, recorded for research, took a doctor, solved our everyday problems, and most importantly - morally supported, all 6 hours while the operation was near me. My father and I are grateful for her professionalism and excellent human qualities. All the issues solved quickly, clearly, without fuss.

The patient was treated of thoracic aortic aneurysm

October 5, 2011 my son (2 years), made an endovascular operation to close the interatrial defect (11mm). We still can not believe that we had an operation. Many times re-read the topic on the forum about invasive operations and dreamed that my son, you can close the defect in this way. Unfortunately, in Kazakhstan, we have not reached the age of 15 kg. weight such closures do not, only by the open method. Yes, and child cardiac surgery is just beginning to develop. All parents, if possible, take the children to Russia, Germany, South Korea, Israel. So I began to collect information about the clinics, where it is better to do the operation. By a fluke we got to Samsung. I'm not sure how many quarters this hospital occupies, but it's huge, it feels like it's in the forest, although it's located in the heart of Seoul. In advance, I apologize for the pun in the writings, I will certainly write in detail about our stay in the clinic. Now, I just want to say thanks to our endovascular surgeon Kang I Sok, the entire 9W pediatric department and the department for working with Russian-speaking patients Sonia, Lisa and Mr. Chu. For their personal involvement in the recovery of my little son. Especially the interpreter Sone who met us at the airport, accompanied at the examinations, when the operation was supported me morally and in general became my native person. Sonia did not just fulfill her duties, but she really sympathized. We flew home on October 14, I look anxiously at my son's leg (more precisely, I constantly look at her), but I see nothing there. No bruise, no scars, if I had not seen his leg right after the operation, you might think that he was not given a puncture. Lord, is this really the modern high tech technology. For all the stay in the clinic, he practically did not cry, except for the time when it was impossible to eat 6 hours before the operation (from 4.30 am to 11 am), about which he at that time sucks his breast, and when he was not given mother's milk, he hysterically raised , but this one, he could not be reassured by the whole department. How I transferred all this, do not describe in words.
I want to note the high professionalism of the sisters, how they quickly and painlessly install catheters, take blood, how they change the adhesive plasters on these catheters, wipe the puncture site with special napkins, massage the brush and fingers from sagging! Find an approach to every child. Even when the son did not want to drink medicine, and kicked! The nurse only smiled, and on my slap to my son for the spilled medicine said Dont steal, zisis baby. Type is a child, he can do anything! In Korea, an interesting mentality: the old and the children are the highest caste, the old people should all bow down, almost everything is allowed to children!
The treatment was at the highest level. So everything is organized and computerized. When you get to the department, a paper bracelet is put on the pen on the handle, on which there is all the information about the child and the treatment prescribed. When you go to another examination, the doctor already knows who will come and what examination to do. While doing the examination, the child watches cartoons, after examinations, we walk in the garden on a special baby carriage with a tripod, where all sorts of flashing sensors and droppers hang. However, it was difficult to put a son in the carriage after the operation, he runs like a battery, and I followed him like a second battery, just a dropper at the speed We were lying on the 9th floor. In the same sector, if you go down to floor B1 there are several restaurants, grocery (like a super market), flower shops, a shop where you can buy everything from diapers to a travel bag, souvenir shops, a bank, a pharmacy. We did not buy food, because they were fed patients with a choice of European or Korean cuisine 3 times a day. Order from the menu. Food is carried by a special machine. About her write separately
I want to tell all parents whose children have heart surgery, do not despair, find a good clinic, trust the surgeon, and get the best treatment.

The patient was treated of atopic dermatitis

I took advantage of Bookimed services in April 2018. They picked up a clinic for the diagnosis of a child very quickly. Manager Svetlana contacted me a few hours after completing the application and was with me online for the next 3 weeks literally constantly. Including in the evening. For which I am very grateful to her! I felt indifferent to my child. The clinic of San Juan de Deux in Barcelona is very well equipped and looks like a Hollywood movie. For a relatively small amount of money, we made a complete check-up including extensive blood tests. However, since we did not have a diagnosis, we had to literally ask for medical advice. Therefore, if there is no specific diagnosis, there may be questions in its formulation. You need to understand exactly what kind of doctors you want to go through. All the specialists are very good, adequate and get on well with the children. The service of foreign clients is well organized, everything is convenient and no difficulties have arisen.
