Lymph node cancer in childhood
Lymphoma (lymph node cancer) in children is a malignant tumor that damages the lymphatic system and the cells of the child's defense system. In the lymphatic system, lymph circulates through the vessels, consisting of lymphocytes, which actively fight infectious agents in the child's body, getting rid of bacteria in the lymph nodes. Also, lymphocytes are present in lymphoid tissues (concentration of macrophages, lymphocytes), performing the function of protecting and maintaining the constancy of the internal environment of the child's body.
Cancer of the lymph nodes (lymphoma) manifests itself, like any other type of malignant neoplasm, when the cells of the body undergo uncontrolled proliferation, begin to constantly divide, forming new pathological cells. Growing through uncontrolled reproduction, cells accumulate in the lymph nodes or tissues of children's organs and form a cancerous tumor.
The disease in children has several types (Hodgkin's, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma), symptoms that differ in behavior in the body, the rate of metastasis and response response to therapy.
In Israeli clinics, pediatric oncologists have sufficient experience in the treatment of lymphoma (lymph node cancer) in children through the use of progressive diagnostic techniques (complex laboratory tests for differential diagnosis), innovative equipment. They provide quality medical services, increasing the number of children cured of cancer.
Lymphoma (lymph node cancer) in a child: the latest methods of differential diagnosis
The study of lymph node cancer (lymphoma) in children in Israeli clinics is a complex, differential process that involves the use of progressive diagnostic methods, providing highly accurate survey results. The use of the latest medical equipment, imaging systems, progressive therapeutic methods contributes to the most effective treatment of lymphoma (lymph node cancer) in children.
In an Israeli clinic, a child with lymphoma will undergo a high-quality examination, develop an individual risk-adaptive treatment program at an affordable price. To diagnose childhood cancer of the lymph nodes, the following methods are used:
- studying the child's history;
- physical examination;
- general and biochemical blood test;
- lymph node biopsy, biopsy assessment;
- determination of the type of lymphoma in the child;
- the degree of metastasis;
- MRI, CT, radiography, ultrasound;
- bone tissue scanning.
The appropriateness of each type of examination for a child is determined by the doctor on an individual basis. Based on the results of the examination, oncologists, surgeons, chemotherapists, radiologists and other narrow specialists jointly decide on the methods of treating a child with lymph node cancer at an affordable cost.

Cancer of the lymph nodes: the cost of treating lymphoma in children in Israeli clinics
Treatment of cancer pathologies in children in Israeli clinics is a fast, high-precision detection of malignant tumors in the lymph circulation system, the selection of effective methods of combating cancer tumors, as well as affordable prices.
Risk-adapted treatment of lymphoma (lymph node cancer) in children and adolescents involves A complex approach. The scope of therapeutic measures depends on the operability of the tumor, on the localization, the degree of metastasis, the microscopic structure of the tumor, on the general condition of the child. The cost of each individual procedure depends on the type, characteristics of the tumor, the nature of the course of the disease.
Treatment of lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes) in children involves the use of the following methods:
- drug therapy;
- targeted therapy based on targeted destruction of tumor cells;
- radiation therapy;
- biological therapy;
- surgery, bone marrow transplantation.
The cost of treating lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes) in children in Israeli clinics may vary depending on many reasons. The price of services depends on the type of lymphoma, the stage of the disease, the characteristics of diagnostic procedures, treatment tactics, the length of the child's stay in the clinic, etc. The cost of services for the treatment of lymph node cancer in a child in Israeli clinics is 30-35% lower than the prices for similar services in well-known medical centers in the USA and Europe.
