Decreasing cancer occurrences is among the main challenges of modern high-tech medicine. Early diagnosis and effective treatment are key determinants of the prognosis in cancer patients. The treatment of cancer in Israel involves an individual approach to the patient. Highly skilled specialists consider all patient characteristics, age, concomitant diseases, tolerability of therapies, etc. The most advanced methods, treatments, and technologies are used. That is why Israeli clinics traditionally provide top-quality cancer treatment.
Therapeutic options for malignant and benign neoplasms include:
- Chemotherapy. Anticancer drugs inhibit the growth and metastatic spread of malignant cells. Most commonly, chemotherapy is a part of combination therapy. Pre- and postoperative chemotherapy courses may be used to treat cancer in Israel.
- Surgery. Highly skilled Israeli specialists always observe the principle of wide local excision and no-touch technique. That is why recurrences and metastases occur very rarely after the removal of the tumor. If necessary, palliative and symptomatic surgical interventions are also performed;
- Radiation Therapy. Radiation therapy is the only curative treatment for numerous malignancies. Current studies in nuclear physics have resulted in new methods of radiation therapy in oncology. Precise local and contact forms of irradiation are increasingly being used, enabling the application of higher doses without risk of side effects and complications;
