Advanced methods for diagnosing breast cancer, which are used in Israeli clinics

Diagnosis of breast cancer

Doctors always conduct a survey in the clinic, even if the patient is already diagnosed from abroad. This is due to the fact that often a diagnosis is not confirmed. Or the diagnostics performed on obsolete equipment does not give a complete picture of the disease.

In Israel, usually clinics for the treatment of breast cancer appoint:

  • blood tests: reveal pathologies of internal organs, various inflammatory processes;
  • blood test for tumor markers: the presence of a high content of a specific type of protein indicates the development of the tumor even at the earliest stages;
  • Ultrasound and mammography: to study the location of the tumor, determine its size;
  • PET-CT: can detect metastases in any part of the body;
  • histological study to study tissue particles.

The results of the survey form a further individual therapeutic plan.

What effective methods of treating breast cancer can be prescribed in Israel?

Treatment of breast cancer in Israel

In Israel, as a rule, the treatment of breast tumors takes place in several stages:

  1. Elimination of neoplasm. Surgical intervention is the most effective method, especially if the disease is detected in the early stages. During the operation, not only the tumor is removed, but an urgent biopsy of the lymph node is performed. In the case when cancer cells are not found, they are also absent in other sites. In this case, you can do without removing the nodes and the subsequent lymphostasis.
  2. Prevent the spread. At this stage, three methods are used, which can be used separately from each other or combined:
    • Chemotherapy. If the tumor is too large, then the treatment begins precisely with chemotherapy. Often the method allows you to save your breasts.
    • Biological therapy. It is performed with certain types of tumor pills with the help of herceptin medication.
    • Hormonal treatment in hormone-dependent forms. Reduces the effect of estrogen on cancer cells.
  3. Prevention of relapse with radiation therapy.
