Breast sarcoma: diagnosis and treatment in Israel
Breast sarcoma is a very rare tumor that is malignant. Moreover, it is even more aggressive than cancer in principle, characterized by rapid growth due to the early formation of metastases. It is quite difficult to treat breast sarcoma, since it is highly resistant to various types of therapy, and only new techniques are able to cope with the disease.
Methods of dealing with breast sarcoma used in Israeli clinics give an optimistic prognosis for recovery. Innovative technologies of irradiation, biotherapy, chemotherapy show excellent results even when the patient has metastasis. Along with this, the cost of services in medical institutions in Israel remains at an affordable level and significantly lower than the prices offered in clinics in other developed European countries, America and Canada.
Diagnosis of breast sarcoma in Israel
Due to the rapid growth of mutating cells, it is extremely rare to diagnose breast sarcoma in the early stages. But nevertheless, with a timely visit to the clinic, it is possible to minimize the time for research, since the diagnostics here is carried out on high-precision equipment in 2-3 days. A patient with breast sarcoma is prescribed the following procedures:
- laboratory tests.
The patient pays the cost of diagnostic services at the time of their implementation. The price is formed depending on the nature, the number of studies, the category of the clinic, but in general, the cost of diagnostics is lower than in other countries, while the studies give a 100% accurate result.
Progressive treatment of breast sarcoma in Israel
For the treatment of breast sarcoma, Israeli doctors choose the combined nature of therapy using different techniques, which together gives a good result. Accordingly, the cost of a course of therapy consists of the cost of each method included in the program. To this can be added the cost of breast reconstruction after its removal, if the patient so wishes.
The treatment protocol is drawn up individually, taking into account the characteristics of the disease and the patient's physiology, age, and the presence of concomitant diseases. Accordingly, the price of services is calculated individually and does not change in the course of treatment.
Therapeutic procedures are prescribed in accordance with the stage of development of breast sarcoma, its size, localization. The most reliable way to get rid of a tumor is surgery. With a small size of the neoplasm, surgery is organ-preserving in nature, when only part of the mammary gland is removed. If the sarcoma is in an advanced stage, the operation may involve the complete removal of tissues, pectoral muscles and lymph nodes. In this case, Israeli doctors, at the request of the patient, carry out prosthetics by artificially reconstructing the mammary gland. In parallel with surgical methods, chemotherapy or radiation therapy can be prescribed. An innovative method is also used - immunotherapy of breast sarcoma, the task of which is to mobilize the body's internal reserves to fight the disease.
The cost of treatment for breast sarcoma and other diseases in Israel is controlled by the state, regardless of the form of ownership and category of the clinic. This explains the availability of medical services both for the local population and for patients from other countries.
