Skin sarcoma is a malignant neoplasm that forms in the soft tissues of the skin, similar in appearance to a swelling. The danger lies in the fact that cancer cells are able to separate from the main site and spread to other tissues of the body. Most often, skin sarcoma occurs in older people over the age of 60.
In Israel, methods of dealing with skin sarcoma are based on surgical interventions, radio-, chemotherapy and other techniques, which in most cases give good results. Israeli clinics are equipped with high-precision equipment, experienced specialists, many of whom are world-renowned professors, and the latest methods of effective and, at the same time, gentle therapy are available to each patient.
The cost of skin sarcoma treatment in Israel is much more affordable than the prices for similar services in medical institutions in other developed countries, which explains the popularity of Israeli medicine services among foreign patients.
How is skin sarcoma diagnosed in Israel?
The key to successful effective treatment of skin sarcoma is prompt and accurate diagnosis. The earlier the examinations are carried out and the exact type of skin sarcoma, its size and other characteristics are established, the earlier it will be possible to start treatment and, therefore, get a positive result of therapy.
On the first day of stay, the patient is examined by a doctor and prescribes additional examinations:
- radiation diagnostics, including CT, MRI and other types of studies;
- biopsy with histological examination;
- cytogenetic test;
- immunohistochemical examination, etc.
After undergoing all the procedures that the patient pays for in each individual case, the doctor gathers a council of specialists, where a protocol of therapeutic methods is developed, the full price of a course of treatment depends on their list and number. If we compare the cost of treatment for skin sarcoma in Israel and, for example, Canada or Belgium, then in Israeli clinics it is 40-45 percent less, which especially attracts patients from different countries.
The most advanced methods of treating skin sarcoma
The main value of Israeli oncology is a staff of highly qualified specialists - well-trained oncologists with extensive experience. Most of them are world-class specialists who are well versed in the latest methods of therapy, with a full list of them: from gentle microsurgical operations to innovative drugs for targeted therapy.
For the treatment of skin sarcoma, the following methods are chosen:
- surgical intervention - most often the operation is performed according to the Mohs technique, when fragments of the neoplasm are removed layer by layer, starting from the superficial and ending with a deep layer, until studies show that the tumor is completely eliminated;
- cryosurgery - used for small neoplasms. Instant freezing with liquid nitrogen contributes to the destruction of the membranes of cancer cells, inside of which ice floes are formed. As practice shows, after using this technique, 80% of patients achieve remission.
Targeted, radio- and chemotherapy with the latest effective drugs with low toxicity are also widely used in the treatment of skin sarcoma. p>
Focusing on an individual approach in the treatment of skin sarcoma is another priority of Israeli oncologists. You can find out the prices of services in advance on the website of a particular clinic or during a preliminary consultation. The full cost is formed after an accurate diagnosis has been made and a treatment plan has been developed.
