Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

Two years ago, when an astrocytoma was found in my daughter, I immediately realized that I would take her abroad for examination and treatment. I searched for the clinic according to information on the Internet and reviews. I chose the best hospital and specialists. I settled on Top Assuta, which is considered the best not only in Israel but also far beyond its borders. Everything was very prompt: I immediately sent an application and after a couple of days, we talked with our doctor. I knew that the level of Israeli clinics was much higher than ours. I was very impressed by the quality of service, technical equipment, and organization of work with people when there were no queues. Moreover, we had an interpreter who was also our guide. In the children’s department, everything is cheerful, with a very caring attitude towards the children. Diagnostics, surgery and medicines are the best. Surgery and chemo were top-notch. We arrived home with the confidence that we had overcome the disease.

Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

It took a long time from the onset of the disease before our doctors were able to make a diagnosis. I suffered from headaches for a long time, there was a feeling of pressure on my eyes. I began to lose consciousness, sometimes there were periods when I stopped orienting myself in space. To all my complaints, the doctors shrugged their shoulders, saying that these are age-related changes. When it got really bad, I went to Israel. There, in just a couple of days, I was examined and they found an astrocytoma in me. Surgery, radiation, and a long course of chemotherapy brought me into remission. Now every 6 months I am examined according to plan.

Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

Valery was forced to turn to Ichilov when local doctors suspected a brain tumor. He shares his results and impressions about the trip, conditions, and attitude of the staff in a video review.


Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

I and my husband are treated in Ichilov. We thought that the trip for examination and treatment would be planned, but as a result, we had to immediately undergo an emergency operation due to the onset of an attack. Everything was done very quickly. During the examination, the grade 2 tumor was revealed. Now we are undergoing a course of radiation lasting one and a half months. The doctors say that then it will be necessary to take chemotherapy drugs for several months but this is no longer in the clinic, but at home.

Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

Now I know how hard it is when a loved one has cancer, but you can’t help in any way when you don’t know if the treatment will give results when you tremble from every wasted day. My husband’s problems began suddenly. By the age of 50, he began to lose his memory dramatically. I was very scared by the doctors that a person after brain surgery can change a lot. Still, my husband and I have been together for 30 years. In the end, we decided to fly to Israel. Everything went very well. She underwent surgery, followed by radiation therapy. Now we need constant monitoring, as the doctors warned us from the very beginning about the possibility of a relapse. But for more than a year, there are no symptoms and everything is fine.

Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

I flew to the Israeli Sheba clinic because of a migraine that our Moscow specialists could not do anything about. As a result, it turned out that I had an astrocytoma, a brain tumor, which gave me a headache. On the one hand, the fact that the tumor was detected at an early stage was a salvation for me, although the news turned out to be very unexpected and I coped with it with difficulty. On the other hand, I still had to undergo surgery, undergo radiation therapy, and several courses of chemotherapy. Now the disease has receded and I only need to be examined periodically.

Diagnosis: Astrocytoma

In Israel, everything is done quickly. They examine quickly. They operate quickly. For me, that was the most important thing. All the examinations and treatments are at a high level.

Astrocytoma. How serious is this?

Cerebral astrocytoma – symptoms of cancer: headaches, incoordination, convulsionsAstrocyte can be located according to the degree of malignancy of the form in the following order:

  • Pilocytic. This is a benign tumor with clear boundaries, which slowly increases in volume.
  • Fibrillar (diffuse). It has no clear boundaries. It often forms fluid-filled cysts.
  • Anaplastic. This is a malignant, fast-growing astrocytoma that invades nearby brain structures.

Regardless of the degree of malignancy, astrocytoma requires an early start of treatment, since even a slow-growing benign node compresses the surrounding brain tissues, leads to an increase in intracranial pressure, and changes the activity of nerve centers.

The disease manifests itself with a number of non-specific neurological symptoms:

  • Persistent headaches.
  • Convulsions.
  • Violation of coordination of movements, fine motor skills.
  • Memory deterioration.
  • Decrease in visual acuity, hearing, ability to recognize speech, etc.

As the disease progresses, the quality of life of the patient quickly deteriorates.

Approaches to the treatment of astrocytoma

The choice of the most appropriate method of treatment or their combination is determined by the shape of the astrocytoma and its location.

Treatment of astrocytoma in Israel - operation

Surgical removal


Benign and malignant astrocytomas are subject to surgical removal. Surgery is mandatory and the very first stage of treatment. A tumor with clear boundaries, which does not grow into the vital structures of the brain, is the easiest to remove. Cancer nodes located in close proximity to the nerve centers are not subject to surgical removal, since damage to these centers leads to the loss of certain higher psychological functions (memory, perception, thinking, speech, etc).

Radiation therapy

In the past, radiotherapy was considered an adjunct treatment. Now, thanks to the development of medical technology, in European countries and the United States, a wide range of cancer patients can be treated with radio-surgical systems such as radio and cyberknife. These technologies make it possible to remove a cancerous node of any size and shape without incisions and craniotomy.

The accuracy of the impact of radio-surgical systems reaches fractions of a millimeter. An additional “bonus” of using the Cyberknife is the ability of the device to monitor tumor nodes that move during breathing and muscle contraction. This eliminates the need for rigid fixation of the patient and makes the procedure much more comfortable.

Targeted therapy

In the West, to slow down the growth of tumors and to control the disease at the stage of remission, monoclonal antibody preparations are used. The appointment of this type of drug does not cause difficulties. These are tablets that do not have serious side effects, which are well tolerated even with a long course of treatment.
A serious problem is the preliminary examination of the patient, which includes testing for 790 varieties of genetic mutations, the appearance of which leads to the transition of a normal cell to malignant growth. Depending on the identified mutations, effective targeted drugs are selected, which must be taken for months or years.

Treatment of astrocytoma in Israel - radiation therapyImmunotherapy

One of the leading causes of uncontrolled growth of tumors is the lack of response to cancer cells from the immune system. Immunotherapy as a method of cancer treatment allows to artificially “help” the immune system to recognize altered cells and start actively attacking them. To this end, by using tissue samples from a patient’s tumor, an autologous vaccine is created that is only effective against one single tumor in one particular patient.
The action of the vaccine is supplemented by the introduction of a certain type of virus into the human body, which infects only cancer cells by ignoring healthy ones. Additional damage to the structures of the cancer node facilitates the work of the immune system to eliminate the tumor.

Where is the best place to treat astrocytoma?

The answer to this question is obvious. If it is possible to go abroad for treatment, then it makes sense to use the experience of the best Israeli doctors. The prognosis for life and recovery in the case of the astrocytoma is largely determined by the quality of the treatment: the technical level of neurosurgical operations, the clinic’s equipment with the latest equipment, the availability of high-tech methods of treatment, modern medicines.
Experts Medical, based on the experience of treating its clients, has created the TOP-3 of the best oncological medical centers in the world. These are the Sheba Children’s Medical Center, the Ichilov and Schneider clinic.

Experts Medical’s medical consultants will always be happy to help you organize a remote consultation and treatment in the best foreign clinics specializing in the treatment of astrocytoma.
