Peculiarities of thyroid cancer treatment

Thyroid cancer diagnostic and treatment scheme depends on the tumor stage.

Basic diagnostic procedure is ultrasound during which biopsy can be performed. For precise localization of a tumor some cases also require carrying out of MRI and radioisotope scanning for metastase determining.

Depending on the result of diagnostics doctors prescribe the treatment. Early stages of thyroid cancer require partial or complete removal of thyroid (thyroidectomy). At stage 3 and 4 surgical treatment can be combined with chemo-, immune or targeted therapy.

The patient was treated of brain tumor

I worked with bookimed to explore options for brain tumor surgery in Turkey. In less than 24 hours after filling out the form online with basic information, received a call from bookimed specialist. It was very helpful that Ivan Koval spoke both Russian and English. Upon sending patient's scans, Ivan was able to give his feedback on urgency of the matter and relayed all of that in both languages. Within one day, we received responses from 2 clinics. With Ivan's help we were able to evaluate both bids as well as quality of facilities. It was very reassuring that Ivan knew the names of the specialists that I had already researched. Since the parents of the child insisted that I made at least one contact directly with the clinic, the delay of the direct response and the quality of the bid were very disconcerting. Direct contact with a clinic was done by the clinic's administrative staff who began making contacts with orthopedist and ophthalmologist (based on symptoms caused by the brain tumor!). Contrary to the parents' expectations, direct contact was not "more economic" but turned out to be too vague and still unclear if the correct department was ever consulted. Ivan's situation was very difficult as he had to deal with a family who made decisions based on the cost (no regard for quality) and word of the mouth (no differentiation as to which procedure was done). He was very patient and compassionate to the fate of the child. Ivan was able to relay to the child's parents diagnosis, bids, comparisons, and complexity of the procedure to be performed. It takes several hours per day and several days to coordinate the correct diagnosis based on scans and numerous phone calls between different time zones to coordinate quick and accurate response. I received updates and calls as soon as they came in which implies that Ivan worked 24/7 to make the best arrangements. While my initial contact was a shot in the dark, over the course of few days I began to appreciate the sense of confidence that comes from having a trained medical specialist to represent your interests when "shopping" for a brain surgeon. No amount of googling and online reviews can substitute opinion from a trained medic in dealing with various clinics. At the end of the day, I feel that having Ivan to oversee the process from admission to the RIGHT clinic to take care of the RIGHT procedure (brain and not foot) all the way to discharge is a solid form of medical insurance.

Hope and faith work miracles. If you have hope and opportunity, you have to use it undoubtedly. And the first decision that springs to mind is the sole right. Everything was performed qualitatively, people are responsive. I want to say thank you to Sofia (Coordinator of International Patients Support), who helped us to make a right and sole choice. She provided us with all pros and cons, helped to make a right decision.

I wanna say thank you to Ivan Koval for his amazing efforts in helping us with our situation. He was very fast in responding to us and for a few times, he responded even faster than I even imagined. He did a very good job in pressuring the hospitals. He should be an example for all employees how they should conduct themselves. And I want to show my gratitude for him and to tell you guys that this is how the customer service should be like.

Diagnostics of thyroid cancer

Diagnostics of thyroid gland cancer mainly includes:

  • Consultation with surgeon and endocrinologist;
  • Complete physical examination, including ultrasound, biopsy, blood counts, MRI and Computer Tomography;
  • Examination usually lasts 5 days.

Thyroid cancer treatment methods

  • Radioiodine. It is consumed in the form of capsules or as a liquid. It is taken orally, then is absorbed by the digestive tract and collected in cells of the thyroid gland. This method stops the growth and activity of thyroid gland cells. The hyperactive functions of the thyroid gland return to normal state, and unwanted tissues are destroyed. After this procedure, patients have to keep the diet, rules of self-hygiene, and to consume a lot of water.
  • Thyroidectomy – total removal of thyroid gland and its nodes. After this procedure patients have to consume special hormones until the end of life.
  • Subtotal thyroidectomy – partial removal of thyroid gland. Doctors leave the healthy part of gland.

During the surgical intervention to treat thyroid gland cancer, the frozen section method is used. The main goal of the method is microscopic rapid examination of tissue sections obtained by cutting a frozen small part of tumor.

The value of this method is that the surgeon gets the opportunity to know whether the tumor is totally removed or intervention should be repeated.

Staging of thyroid cancer

  • Stage I - the tumor is within the thyroid gland, no metastases and gland capsule deformation.
  • Stage II a - single tumor that deforms the capsule or multiple nodes in thyroid gland without metastasis.
  • Stage II b - tumor metastasizes to the lymph nodes on one side of the gland.
  • Stage III - tumor invasion through the capsule, compression of adjacent organs, lymph node metastases at both sides.
  • Stage IV - tumor invasion into surrounding tissues or distant metastasis.

The patient was treated of parathyroid adenoma

Despite us thoroughly pre-screening several hospitals and all looking good on paper and the website of this one our experience locally was just terrible! Waiting in the queue with dozens of other customers for an hour just to be registered... Interpreter who we did not order but had to pay for her services. However, the climax of all the process was the diagnostics and consultation with the doctor for which we paid 550Euro and then had to wait for nearly 10 days for the official report when it was promised to be delivered to us next day! Local coordinator Alexandra Zinnemann despite being the focal point just moved away from solving any issues blaming her other colleagues! Stay away!!! Not going to recommend to any of my friends in the future this clinics!
Reply from Team of International Office at Clinics Solingen:
"Dear Airat,

first of all, allow us to thank you for this very detailed and emotional feedback. We always take criticism very serious, since this helps our clinic to develop. We are really sorry that you had to wait for Prof. Sesterhenn despite having an appointment for a fixed time. Unfortunately, sometimes the circumstances in a hospital lead to a situation, in which the doctor has to participate in urgent unexpected surgery.

Prof. Sesterhenn has performed a comprehensive analysis and has discussed the results with the patient in detail. He has also orally answered all your questions. A written conclusion, however, is usually prepared within several working days thereafter. This is a standardized process: professor records his conclusion on tape; after that, his secretary prepares the document, which is again reviewed and signed by the professor. Only after this, a written conclusion can be handed out to patient.

We wish you good health, and all the best for the future.

Sincerely yours,
Team of International Office at Clinics Solingen"

The patient was treated of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

My close family relative was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia a year ago at age of 26 and he needed a bone narrow transplant as the very last option to save his life. This procedure is not available in Ukraine and we spent weeks searching for the most affordable clinics with a good reputation. On January 12th, a few minutes right after visiting the website I was reached by Aleksey Berkovets from Bookimed.
He was an extremely polite, helpful and very professional. I really liked that compare to other services he didn`t promote any specific clinic or country, he gave me an options to choose from.
After only one short week on January 20th Dmytro was landed in Istanbul to start his treatment in Medipol Clinic!!

Thank you for your constant support Aleksey! You are much appreciated!

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.
