What is the danger of glioblastoma?
Glioblastoma is an oncological disease that affects the glial cells of the brain. The main insidiousness of the disease is that at an early stage it often develops asymptomatically, and at later stages - rapidly and aggressively, leading to death. Thanks to recent advances in medicine and genetics, patients with this diagnosis have a chance of a successful outcome. In Israeli clinics, doctors use the most modern methods of therapy, perform dozens of successful operations every year, and detect malignant neoplasms at the earliest stages.
Currently, there is no medicine that would completely cure this disease. However, if the diagnosis of glioblastoma is started promptly and according to the right regimen, tumor growth can be kept under control for many years. In addition, the cost of a course of anticancer therapy also depends on the stage of the oncological disease.
Glioblastoma: treatment in Israel - principles, features
Patients from around the world who are diagnosed with cancer, Israeli clinics are increasingly choosing to undergo therapy. There are several reasons for this.
- High-precision diagnostics.
Timely diagnosis of glioblastoma, the most accurate determination of the location and stage of tumor development significantly increase the chances of successful therapy. In the medical centers of Israel, innovative equipment and laboratory diagnostic methods are used to examine patients with suspected cancer, which provide highly accurate results.
- The use of the most modern techniques.
As the tumor progresses, it forms many branched branches that can penetrate into different parts of the brain. In addition, the neoplasm consists of cells of different types that react differently to the same medication. Therefore, Israeli oncologists, when compiling a therapy program for patients, use an integrated approach, which is considered the most effective.
Thus, radiation therapy for glioblastoma can slow down or stop the development of the tumor for a long time. Chemotherapy helps to enhance this effect. In oncology centers in Israel, patients are prescribed new generation drugs that have proven their effectiveness and at the same time have a minimum of side effects. High-precision innovative equipment used by Israeli neurosurgeons allows tumors to be removed with minimal risk of damaging healthy cells. In addition to the above methods, oncological clinics in Israel also use drug, targeted, immunomodulatory therapy. An integrated approach allows not only to more effectively slow down the progression of cancer, but also to maintain the general condition of the patient.
- Oncologists with extensive experience.
If the patient glioblastoma was confirmed, the operation is performed using the craniotomy method, which requires special knowledge and experience from the surgeon. In this regard, Israeli neurosurgeons have no equal - hundreds of similar operations are performed annually in the country's oncology centers.
