Protocol for the treatment of breast fibroids in Israeli clinics
The choice of a method for treating breast fibroids depends on the overall picture of the disease. So, if the dimensions of the tumor are small, within the range of up to 8 mm, it is possible to do with conservative treatment - hormonal therapy. In most cases, surgical intervention is used with the removal of either one neoplasm, or with some amount of healthy tissue adjacent to it. In this case, the incisions are made along the border of the skin fold or areola, so you should not be afraid of aesthetic defects. The operation is tolerated quite easily, and patients are discharged 2-3 days after it.
Cryoablation is also widely used for the treatment of breast fibroids, which replaces surgery. A cryoprobe with liquid nitrogen is introduced into the tissues, which, upon contact with the tissues, instantly freezes them, provoking the death of mutating cells.
The cost of diagnostics and a full course of treatment for breast fibroids is regulated in Israel at the state level, regardless of the clinic's ownership, therefore the prices are always fair and the most affordable compared to the price lists of medical institutions in other countries.
