Diagnosis: oncology

I came to Medipol to be treated for oncology. Organizing the trip was not difficult; at the preparatory stage, consultants and managers worked with us and helped with the preparation of documents. Well received. We have translators with us during all procedures. The hospital provided us with free accommodation and food during chemotherapy. Everyone is friendly and very helpful in getting through this time when the outcome of the treatment is not yet clear.

Diagnosis: oncology
Good afternoon. I want to tell you how I went to Memorial for oncology. I initially needed to go to a consultation with an oncologist. But unlike our doctors in Israel, specialists do not diagnose by eye; you need to undergo all the necessary examinations. In the end, I was satisfied with the hospital. I had translators with me everywhere who speak Russian very well. The tests were done very quickly. We didn’t have to wait for results, as is usually the case with us. The doctor immediately made an accurate diagnosis and prescribed treatment. At the same time, she underwent chemotherapy in Sisli. The only difficulty was that the translator is not with you all the time, but only during consultations, procedures and examinations. The rest of the staff does not speak Russian, and some speak little English, which created some difficulties in communication.

Diagnosis: chemotherapy and radiation therapy

I turned to Experts Medical to search for a clinic abroad to undergo chemotherapy and radiation therapy. They not only gave me a choice of several clinics in the relevant field in different countries, but even commented on the doctors working in them. During treatment abroad, the staff were constantly in touch; if any questions about treatment arose, everything was quickly resolved. Some people advised me to contact clinics directly, without intermediaries, but everything is not as simple as it seems, even when you know a foreign language and can communicate abroad. There are situations that you cannot solve yourself, or you don’t even know about a certain way to solve them, especially when it comes to treatment, and your strength and nerves are already constantly strained. I am glad that I turned to this company (actually Maria), and I am very grateful for their help in treatment!

Types of chemotherapy for oncology

Химиотерапия в Турции и в Израиле: Виды химиотерапии при онкологии

A chemotherapist, a doctor who prescribes chemotherapy, chooses the type of treatment based on the following parameters: 

  • Type of cancer, its molecular genetic characteristics (different types of cancer respond differently to the effects of certain drugs)
  • Stages of the disease
  • Based on the types and results of treatment that the patient has previously received
  • The presence or absence of concomitant pathologies (renal, cardiovascular, diabetes, etc.)

After analyzing all these factors, the doctor prescribes one of the types of chemotherapy:

System

It has an effect on the entire body: a medicine introduced into the bloodstream enters all systems and organs of the body. The drugs are administered intravenously, orally, through a needle or implanted port systems. The latter option is preferable if the patient faces a long course of chemotherapy.

Таrget chemotherapy

A new type of drug that effectively destroys a certain type of cancer cell. The advantages of this type of treatment are that it has less negative impact on healthy cells.

Local chemotherapy

It is used to minimize side effects and maximize impact on the cancer site. Thus, the drug solution can be injected into the pleural area, ventricles of the brain, spinal cord, bladder, or rubbed into the skin. Progressive types of chemotherapy are the HIPEC method (a hot solution of a chemotherapy drug is injected into the abdominal cavity, if it is extensively affected by the cancer process), chemoembolization (injection of chemotherapy drugs into a vessel supplying the tumor with blood).

Patients often talk about “yellow,” “blue,” and “white” chemotherapy, based on the color of the drug. This classification is conditional.

 

Duration of chemotherapy

The duration of the course is selected individually, depending on the patient’s performance. The course can last a month or six months, in some cases (for example, when using the HIPEC method) a one-time administration of chemotherapy is carried out.

Side effects from chemotherapy

Химиотерапия в Турции и в Израиле: Побочные эффекты от химиотерапии

Unfortunately, during the treatment process, not only cancerous cells, but also healthy cells of the body are affected. This is what can cause side effects: 

  • The appearance of nausea, vomiting, pain
  • Lack of appetite, taste disturbances
  • The appearance of digestive disorders
  • Partial or complete hair loss
  • Changing the nail structure
  • Weakness, increased fatigue
  • Immunocompromise, increased risk of infections
  • Changing the blood formula.

That is why during and after a course of chemotherapy the patient must be under the supervision of doctors and take supporting medications.

In some cases, rehabilitation is indicated after a course of chemotherapy.

 

Why is it better to undergo chemotherapy abroad?

There are several compelling reasons for this:

Химиотерапия в Турции и в Израиле: Почему химиотерапию лучше проходить за границей

  • In clinics in Turkey, Germany, Israel, Spain and other developed countries, many of the latest chemotherapy drugs are available that cannot be purchased in the countries of the former USSR
  • Treatment is carried out according to international protocols
  • Even if these chemotherapy drugs can be bought in the CIS, their quality is strikingly different from European and Turkish ones.Thanks to this, they are more effective and cause fewer side effects.
  • Thanks to more advanced diagnostics, the chemotherapist can more accurately select the medicine, type of chemotherapy and course duration
  • Doctors in clinics abroad are highly qualified specialists, whose professionalism is confirmed by international certificates.

 

Chemotherapy cost

The price depends on the picture of the disease: it determines the type of chemotherapy, its duration, and the number of courses that the patient must undergo.

At the patient’s request, Experts Medical coordinators contact the clinic and find out the estimated cost in his specific case. You can find out more detailed information about treatment and its organization by leaving a request for a free consultation on the Experts Medical website.
