The number of new cancer cases and deaths due to oncology is continuously growing globally. According to the estimation of Worldwide Health Organization, by 2035 the incidence of cancer will reach 26 million new cases per year and the number of deaths due to cancer will increase up to 17 million.
Fortunately, utilization of achievements of advanced medicine helps to overcome more and more cancer types.
Timely and precise diagnosis of disease, qualified specialized care and access to the latest advanced medical products and innovate technologies is one of critical factors of successful cancer treatment.
Israeli medicine is known as one of the most progressive all over the world in cancer diagnostics and treatment.
Israeli survival rate for patients with cancer, that accepted as a standard level index of cancer treatment is one of the highest in the world.
Israeli experts occupy one of the leading positions in clinical researches in oncology. Patent developments of Israeli oncologists are successfully used all over the world. Israeli Oncology centers are equipped with the most advanced technologies and provide an access to the latest pharmacological agents.
Every year tens of thousands of patients from all over the world come to Israel to diagnose cancer and to get an optimal treatment.
The high level of Israeli experts and innovative methods of therapies often give a chance even in complicated cancer cases.
The main risk factors for cancer:
Diagnostic methods, commonly used by Israeli oncologists:
✓ Positron Emission Computer Tomography (PET CT )
PET CT results give us an opportunity to make reliable differential diagnosis of malignant tumors, benign neoplasm and non-neoplastic diseases as well as detect the presence of metastasis. The main advantage of this test is functional vitalization of tumors that distinguishes PET CT beside anatomic-topographic methods of radiant diagnostics - ultrasonic tomography, X-ray and computer magnet-resonance imaging.
✓ MRI research
✓ Isotopic scanning
✓ Genetic tumor tissue analysis for defining the optimal targeted treatment
✓ Genetic liquid biopsy for targeted treatemtn
✓ Virtual colonoscopy
The resulting information enables to choose the most optimal solution when considering cancer treatment.
In the last decade increasingly used molecular biological analysis of tumor tissue as well as blood test, called liquid biopsy. These are strictest methods to choose targeting treatment in each individual case of cancer.
Common therapies for oncologic treatments, used in Israel:
Innovative methods of treatment used by the Israeli oncologists:
- Photodynamic therapy based on the use of photosensitive substances - photosensitizes (including dyes) and are usually specific visible light wavelength. It became real breakthrough on oncology field. Its features include less traumatic procedure and more comfort for patient while using this method and efficiency of application.
- Radiation therapy and intensity-modulated linear accelerator for maximum strict irradiation of malignant tumors, which serves as an alternative beside surgical treatment of pancreatic cancer, lung bone, liver, as well as the presence of metastasis in the brain.
Israeli oncologists successfully diagnose and treat a full range of cancer.
The most common cancers treated in Israel:
- Lung Cancer
- Breast Cancer
