I went to Anadolu Clinic for a second opinion on my disease - skin melanoma. In the clinic, the examination was completed within 3 days. Very friendly and polite staff, including doctors and accompanying translators. I received answers to all my questions. I recommend this clinic for examination and treatment. Special thanks to the Bookimed staff (Pavel Popkov and Olga) for organizing and assisting with the trip to the Anadolu clinic. Я обратилась в клинику Anadolu за получением второго мнения по своему заболеванию - меланома кожи. В клинике обследование прошло в течение 3-х дней. Очень приветливый и вежливый персонал, включая врачей и сопровождающих переводчиков. Мной были получены ответы на все интересующие меня вопросы. Рекомендую эту клинику для обследования и лечения. Отдельная благодарность сотрудникам Bookimed (Павлу Попкову и Ольге) за организацию и помощь при поездке в клинику Anadolu.

We had a Skype Consultation with Dr. Joan Carles. The call went really well. Dr. Carles was very well prepared and knew my case beforehand based on the documentation we provided prior to the call. He answered all our questions, and provided us with a final written report on his recommendations. We are very happy with the service provided, and we highly recommend this Medical Center, and especially Dr. Joan Carles.

The patient was treated of meningioma

Before the online consultation, I consulted with several doctors in Ukraine and it was very important for me to get answers to many questions, including absolutely amateur ones. Dr. Bartolome Oliver, despite his worldwide popularity, very sincerely, accurately and correctly answered all my questions. I liked the doctor very much, it was clear that he was a professional in his field. Thanks a lot to Bookimed, and especially to my coordinating doctor Ekaterina Koliko. Перед онлайн-консультацией я консультировалась с несколькими врачами в Украине и для меня было очень важно получить ответы на многие вопросы, включая абсолютно дилетантские. Доктор Бартоломе Оливер, не смотря на свою всемирную популярность, очень душевно, точно и правильно дал ответы на все мои вопросы. Доктор очень понравился, было видно, что он профессионал своего дела. Спасибо огромное Букимеду, а особенно моему доктору-координатору Екатерине Колико.

The clinic is really good! Good Russian translators especially Olga and Lina !!! We passed all the tests here, now we are preparing for chemistry! Dr. Barnadas is leading us, this is one of the best oncologists in Spain, and this is true !!! Since we also have diabetes, the endocrinologist controls all the treatment, this is a big plus. It is very expensive, but in return you get highly qualified specialists, the best medical equipment, good service! We are all happy! Thanks Bookimed for quality service and help!

The patient was treated of melanoma

Surface melanoma was detected in November 2016. A deep excision was carried out in the Kiev oncology center at Verkhovinaya Street. The thickness of melanoma in Breslow is 0.038 mm. In a year and a half, the histology was rechecked in Israel. After rechecking, applying with help to this resource, Constantine offered to undergo examination in the clinic of Turkey, in Istanbul. The clinic is called Liv Hospital. The glass and blocks were rechecked in Turkey. Almost everything coincided with Israeli data (0.68 mm thickness, 0.7 mm Israel) and 1 mitosis was detected. Translator Madina, who accompanied us all the time, just umnichka !!! In all delves into itself. You can all ask her again, she will ask the doctor if you do not understand something or have additional questions before the examination. Two doctor's consultations are included immediately in the cost when you pay only the first - one before the examinations and the second after. It was also possible to ask for other health problems and get advice. There are almost all doctors there. If you want to check on other issues - take with you all the available documents. I was also examined for gynecology, as in Ukraine they put dysplasia of the cervix. The diagnosis was not confirmed in the clinic of Turkey. At the moment, they said that the BSLU does not need to be done and every survey was painted for every 3 months in Ukraine. We thank Constantine and his colleague Julia for their assistance, as well as assistance in organizing a free transfer to Istanbul. Была выявлена поверхностная меланома в ноябре 2016 года. Проведено глубокое иссечение в Киевском онкологическом центре по ул.Верховинная. Толщина меланомы по Бреслоу 0.038 мм. Через полтора года была произведена перепроверка гистологии в Израиле. После перепроверки, обратившись с помощью к данному ресурсу, Константин предложил пройти обследование в клинике Турции, в Стамбуле. Клиника называется Лив Хоспитал (Liv Hospital).  Повторно проверили стекла и блоки в Турции. Почти все сошлось с израильскими данными (здесь толщина 0.68 мм; Израиль 0.7 мм) и был обнаружен 1 митоз. Переводчик Мадина, которая сопровождала нас постоянно, просто умничка!!! Во все вникает и сама. Вы все можете переспросить у нее, она переспросит у врача, если вы чего-то не поняли или возникли дополнительные вопросы перед обследованием. Две консультации врача включены сразу в стоимость когда оплачиваете только первую - одна до обследований и вторая после. Также была возможность спросить за другие свои проблемы по здоровью и получить консультацию. Там есть почти все врачи. Если захотите провериться по другим вопросам - берите с собой все имеющиеся документы. Я также обследовалась по гинекологии, так как в Украине ставят дисплазию шейки матки. Диагноз не был подтвержден в клинике Турции. В данный момент сказали, что БСЛУ не нужно делать и расписали на каждые 3 месяца различные обследования уже в Украине. Благодарим Константина и его коллегу Юлию за оказанную помощь, а также помощь в организации бесплатного трансфера до Стамбула.

The patient was treated of cervical cancer

She sent for PET / CT revision made at the Korean clinic Severance Hospital, because Severance made a very dubious short description, more like an unsubscribing. I chose Liv Hospital, assistant Bookimed Alexei and assistant Liv Hospital Lala all organized perfectly, data exchange by e-mail, payment at a reasonable price, three days and the description is ready, done well, in detail and clearly. Bookimed coordinator Aleksey Karaganov is a very caring and highly qualified specialist who helped with the consultation and discussion of the diagnosis. Отправляла на пересмотр ПЭТ/КТ, сделанный в корейской клиники Severance Hospital, поскольку Северанс сделал очень сомнительное короткое описание, больше похожее на отписку. Выбрала Лив Хоспитал, ассистент Букимеда Алексей и ассистентка Лив Хоспитал Лала все организовали отлично, обмен данными по эл.почте, оплата по разумной цене, три дня и описание готово, сделано хорошо, подробно и понятно. Координатор Bookimed Алексей Караганов очень заботливый и высококлассный специалист, помог с консультацией и обсуждением диагноза.

In general, I really liked the clinic, the coordination is good. Conveniently, what you met at the airport. However, what the doctor advised after the consultation does not help. I am planning a second consultation. В целом клиника очень понравилась, координация хорошая. Удобно, то что встретили в аэропорту. Однако то, что посоветовал врач после консультации не помогает. Планирую повторную консультацию.

Good afternoon, yesterday returned from the Ichilov Clinic. I would like to thank Bookimed, namely Cyril (our honey coordinator), for the quick feedback, answers to all questions, for the quick organization of the trip, in just 5 days all the documents were prepared, the department “Care” - Olga and Alexandra, honey coordinator in Tel Avive - Denis, transfer - Leo !!!! Unfortunately, Professor Uri Kramer could not accept us, but we were quickly provided with a replacement - Violetta Chernykh, who had a consultation and prescribed adequate treatment. We were satisfied! Добрый день, вчера вернулись из Клиники Ихилов. Хочется поблагодарить Bookimed, а именно Кирилла(нашего мед координатора), за быструю обратную связь, ответы на все вопросы , за быструю организацию поездки, всего за 5 дней были подготовлены все документы, отдел «Забота»- Ольгу и Александра, мед координатора в Тель-Авиве - Дениса, трансфер - Льва!!!!

My assessment of the clinic was only because I did not stay there, only about 20 minutes for an OSTA examination. I was expecting a full examination because I was invited to the Ichilov-Surasky clinic, but was only in two private clinics for consultations. I chose the Vital hotel exclusively because of Considerations to be close to the clinic. Thank you very much Bookimed for choosing a clinic for us for 3 months and keeping in touch with us throughout the time that we were there, but their partners who deal with us upon arrival in the country are negligent about worn and not fully perform their obyazonnosti.Im want to advise humanity, we (people with health) eat with the hope of recovery! I wish you all Health and Kindness! Моя оценка клинике только потому что я там не пребывала,всего лишь раз ито минут 20 на обследование ОСТА,Ожидала полного обследования так как была приглашена в клинику Ихилов-Сураски,но была только в двух частных клиниках на консультации.Выбирала отель Виталь исключительно из за соображений быть рядом с клиникой.Скажу спасибо огромное Bookimed за то что на протяжении 3 месяцев подбирали нам клинику и поддерживали с нами связь на протяжении всего времени что мы там находились,но их партнеры которые занимаются нами по прибытию в страну халатно относятся и не до конца выполняют свои обязонности.Им хочу посоветовать человечности,мы (люди со здоровьем)едим с надеждой о выздоровлении !Желаю всем Здоровья и Доброты!

From the doctors to the nurses and all other personell in this hospital ALL are competent, very polite and friendly - the only small criticism that I have is that unfortunately many don't speak English very well, that's a great shame.

The level of the clinic is high, qualified doctors. For the second time they were vaccinated both for themselves and the child. Cons: - the indicated coordinator in Istanbul did not answer calls on the day of arrival, nor when we arrived at the clinic, did not call back, I had to explain at the reception (they speak English very weakly at the reception), - the transfer service from the clinic is not very comfortable , the drivers do not speak English, there is no child car seat, the cars are dirty, you have to wait a long time. Уровень клиники высокий, врачи квалифицированные. Уже второй раз делали прививки и себе, и ребёнку. Минусы: - указанный координатор в Стамбуле не отвечал на звонки ни в день прилета, ни когда мы прибыли в клинику, так и не перезвонил, пришлось на ресепшине объясняться (на англ на ресепшине говорят очень слабо), - услуга трансфертов от клиники не очень комфортна, водители не говорят на англ, детского автокресла нет, машины грязные, приходится ждать долго.

I've visited Memorial Sisli Hospital for the VIP check up. Luckily, I've decided to make a booking through bookimed rather than directly as the company helped me later on when I experienced some problems at the hospital. It was very easy to make an appoitment and I'd like to thank Anton for patiently helping me to navigate through different hospitals and selecting the right package. Upon my arrival in Istanbul, bookimed organized a transfer to and from hotel to the hospital though due to the traffic there was some waiting time. Contact persons from Bookimed were always ready to answer any questions and provide support. In regard to the services provided by the hospital, I am generally satisfied with the VIP check up provided. Though following the tests I was referred for additional tests and consultations not covered by the package. I arrived the next day for the results and instead of in person consultation was told by an interpreter that all is well. I was very surprised with such level of services as I was requested to pay for the consultation of a professor a day before and instead received an oral statement from an interpreter. I've asked for a consultation with the professor as has been agreed before, but was told that she has left for the day. I then demanded a refund as I did not obtain a service, i.e. consultation of a professor. The hospital then sent a nurse to tell me that the tests were ok. I was still not satisfied as I was expecting a consultation from the doctor, not the nurse or an interpreter. In addition, as the therapist a day before raised concerns for me and sent me for these additional tests, I really wanted to clarify the situation and ask questions. Unfortunately, the hospital could not provide it as apparently there were no other doctors available in this field. This whole second day was a big disappointment as it seems the hospital staff did not care about helping me once I was done with the VIP check up, they also did not try to find alternative solutions. It felt as a scam, as the day before the doctor sends you for additional tests and then you do not get anything out of these tests - not a consultation. Only after repeated demands I was given a hand written note which said the tests were ok, but it did not look as a proper test results comparable to the ones I did a day before. Considering that additional tests and consultations were not cheap, I requested a refund. It took almost the whole day to obtain a refund, the hospital could no longer provide me with an interpreter neither in Russian nor in English and I felt disappointed. The interpreters who are assigned for check up were busy with other clients and could not attend to my situation. I was left waiting for about 4 hours while the hospital management was making a decision. Finally, with many thanks to an interpreter from Memorial Bahçelievler hospital, I believe her name was Olga, the situation was resolved. Olga showed herself as a professional and a very caring specialist. I managed to obtain my refund. I also appreciate the support bookimed provided throughout the situation. Once I left, there were some other test results that I expected to obtain in the next week. Unfortunately, it again took forever to get these results back and required bookimed to follow up on several occasions with the hospital. I do appreciate Barbara's follow up with me and her following up with the hospital. Overall, I am satisfied with the Check up service, but very dissatisfied with the follow up procedure and lack of consultation. I will not choose this particular hospital for future check ups, as if you're paying you should receive service and not deal with the issues and feel like a scam.

The patient was treated of melanoma

Good evening. I can only say thanks to your company and Katerina. Thank you so much for your help and support. The impression about the clinic itself was not very, often made nervous, dragged time, I can’t say anything about the professor either. Five minutes talk for $ 120 a bit too much. The clinic itself is not bad, in my opinion, a lot of clients have simply gathered and cannot cope with such volume, and here we are not talking about the desire to help, just money. How to undertake, I can say that robots need to take as much as possible so that they can cope with it, otherwise it negatively affects their reputation. Thank you again Добрый вечер. Слова благодарности могу выразить только Вашей компании и Катерине. Вам однозначно громадное спасибо за помощь и поддержку. О самой клинике впечатление не очень, часто заставляли нервничать, тянули время, о самом профессоре тоже нечего сказать не могу. Пятиминутное общение за 120 долларов многовато. Сама клиника неплохая, на мой взгляд просто набрались очень много клиентов и не могут справиться с таким объемом и здесь речь не идёт о стремлении помочь, просто деньги. Как предпринимать могу сказать, что роботы нужно брать сколько чтобы можно было с ней справиться иначе это негативно сказывается на репутации . Вам же ещё раз большое спасибо

Was under examination - PET-CT with Galium. Everything was organized professionally, clearly - transfer, settlement, visit to the clinic, examination. In the clinic - the attentive and friendly attitude of the staff. Special thanks to Maksut Atasov. He watered me and fed me and brought me to the toilet. Request: to determine in advance a specific deadline for the conclusion. This would make it possible to plan further actions more clearly. Thanks, Boris Ignatenko Находился на обследовании - ПЭТ-КТ с галием. Все было организовано профессионально, четко - трансфер, поселение, визит в клинику, обследование. В клинике - внимательное и доброжелательное отношение персонала. Отдельная благодарность Максуту Атасову. Он меня и поил, и кормил, и в туалет водил. Пожелание: заранее определять конкретный срок предоставления заключения. Это позволило бы более четко планировать дальнейшие действия. С благодарностью, Борис Игнатенко

The patient was treated of myasthenia

I drove with a positive attitude. And of course there were no minuses for me. I was immediately told that it would not work out to cure me 100% (but I already knew 21 years ago that my myasthenia gravis is incurable). But the doctor does everything to make it comfortable for me to live with her. No pulling money here, cool transfer organization. And what kind of translator I had. Aida is just a gorgeous girl, very kind, open, ready to help 24/7 and helps! But it all depends on your mood. If you are traveling with a negative, it’s not worth it. Believe me, as soon as you carry the negative, the disease begins to absorb you. Bookimed care department is generally cool guys, thanks to them, your stay is very comfortable and under the wing of care Я ехала с позитивным настроем. И конечно минусов для меня не было. Мне сразу сказали, что вылечить меня 100% не получится (но я 21 год назад уже знала, что моя миастения не излечима). Но врач делает все, что бы мне стало комфортно с ней жить. Нет вытягивания денег тут, крутая организация трансфера. А какой у меня был переводчик. Аида просто шикарная девушка, очень добрая, открытая, готовая помогать 24/7 и помогает! Но все зависит от вашего настроя. Если вы едете с негативом-не стоит. Поверьте, как только вы несёте негатив-болезнь начинает вас поглощать. Отдел заботы Bookimed вообще крутые ребята, благодаря им, твоё пребывание очень комфортное и под крылом заботы

I am satisfied with my visit to Germany. Мне очень понравились и организация и полнота обследования. Сам профессор очень приятный человек, на все вопросы даёт полные и понятные ответы. Визитом в Германию я довольна.

Many thanks to the doctors and clinic staff! Many thanks also to bookimed com staff. Exactly a month ago, in the clinic, we received the results of the latest examinations of my sibling - he is practically healthy! A year ago, he was diagnosed with lymphoma with bone marrow metostasis. After two chemotherapy performed at home and a sharp deterioration, we decided to send him to Germany for treatment. After the first chemotherapy, the clinic began to improve, and after 8 months of treatment, the doctor said that the disease had receded! Огромное спасибо докторам и персоналу клиники! Так же большая благодарность сотрудникам bookimed com . Ровно месяц назад в клинике мы получили результаты последних обследований моего родного брата - он практически здоров! Год назад ему был поставлен диагноз лимфома с метостазами в костный мозг . После двух химиотерапией проведенных на родине и резкого ухудшения состояния, мы приняли решение отправить его на лечение в Германию. После первой же химиотерапии в клинике наступило улучшение, а через 8 месяцев лечения врач сообщил, что болезнь отступила !

Thank you for choosing the Memorial Bahçelievler clinic, for which many thanks to Inga Lutsunyak, who did a really huge job, taking into account my unusual case. When traveling, everything was very organized, everything was clear and clear, without delay, the translator and the doctor of the clinic were extremely polite and caring. Thanks to Professor Dr. Ibrahim Sari, the consultation was carried out in great detail, with care and attention, with very necessary advice, thanks to the translator of the clinic Iryna Topaloglu, I really was impressed with not only professionalism, but what is very important for me, a humane attitude! Payment was at the price that was originally said, they did not try to do unnecessarily unnecessary procedures, did not overcharge. True, I didn’t expect it, they scared me so much, but everything turned out to be wrong, thanks to you Благодарю за подбор клиники Memorial Bahçelievler, за что Огромное спасибо Инге Луцуняк, которая провела правда громадную работу, с учётом моего необычного случая. При поездке все было очень организованно, все было четко и ясно, без задержек, переводчик и врач клиники были крайне вежливы и заботливы. Спасибо профессору доктору Ibrahim Sari, консультация проведена очень детально, с заботой и вниманием, с очень нужными советами, спасибо переводчику клиники Iryna Topaloglu, я правда была впечетлена нетолько профессионализмом, но что для меня очень важно, человечным отношением! Оплата была по цене, которую сказали изначально, не старались сделать ненужно лишние процедуры, не завышали цены. Правда, не ожидала, меня так пугали, а все оказалось не так, благодаря Вам

Very friendly staff and translator, helped in everything. After the operation, they gave all the advice on the care of transplanted hair, the transfer and the hotel were very pleased. The doctor is still in touch, although the operation was on January 3rd, he helps with his favorite questions and clarifies everything. Now it remains only to wait for the final result. Очень приветливый персонал и переводчик, во всем помогали. После операции дали все консультации по уходу за пересажанными волосами, очень порадовал трансфер и отель. Врач до сих пор на связи хотя операция была 3го января, с любимы вопросами помогает и все разъясняет. Теперь осталось только дождаться окончательного результата.

Doctors can’t speak english and you have to always rely with the English interpreter which most the time in a hurry because she has to attend other international patients as well.

After my husband insistently said that it would be necessary to do so, so this, then after that we were heard. Персонал хороший , но все поставленно на поток, как то относятся к моей проблеме не очень серьезно, как бы мне этого хотелось!
После того как мой супруг настойчиво сказал, что надо бы сделать так то, так то, то после этого нас услышали.

Very friendly and polite staff, including doctors and accompanying translators. I received answers to all my questions. I recommend this clinic for examination and treatment. Special thanks to the Bookimed staff (Pavel Popkov and Olga) for organizing and assisting with the trip to the Anadolu clinic. Я обратилась в клинику Anadolu за получением второго мнения по своему заболеванию - меланома кожи. В клинике обследование прошло в течение 3-х дней. Очень приветливый и вежливый персонал, включая врачей и сопровождающих переводчиков. Мной были получены ответы на все интересующие меня вопросы. Рекомендую эту клинику для обследования и лечения. Отдельная благодарность сотрудникам Bookimed (Павлу Попкову и Ольге) за организацию и помощь при поездке в клинику Anadolu.

Good evening. I can only say thanks to your company and Katerina. Thank you so much for your help and support. The impression about the clinic itself was not very, often made nervous, dragged time, I can’t say anything about the professor either. Five minutes talk for $ 120 a bit too much. The clinic itself is not bad, in my opinion, a lot of clients have simply gathered and cannot cope with such volume, and here we are not talking about the desire to help, just money. How to undertake, I can say that robots need to take as much as possible so that they can cope with it, otherwise it negatively affects their reputation. Thank you again Добрый вечер. Слова благодарности могу выразить только Вашей компании и Катерине. Вам однозначно громадное спасибо за помощь и поддержку. О самой клинике впечатление не очень, часто заставляли нервничать, тянули время, о самом профессоре тоже нечего сказать не могу. Пятиминутное общение за 120 долларов многовато. Сама клиника неплохая, на мой взгляд просто набрались очень много клиентов и не могут справиться с таким объемом и здесь речь не идёт о стремлении помочь, просто деньги. Как предпринимать могу сказать, что роботы нужно брать сколько чтобы можно было с ней справиться иначе это негативно сказывается на репутации . Вам же ещё раз большое спасибо

The patient was treated of melanoma in LIV Hospital
star star star star star

Surface melanoma was detected in November 2016. A deep excision was carried out in the Kiev oncology center at Verkhovinaya Street. The thickness of melanoma in Breslow is 0.038 mm. In a year and a half, the histology was rechecked in Israel. After rechecking, applying with help to this resource, Constantine offered to undergo examination in the clinic of Turkey, in Istanbul. The clinic is called Liv Hospital. The glass and blocks were rechecked in Turkey. Almost everything coincided with Israeli data (0.68 mm thickness, 0.7 mm Israel) and 1 mitosis was detected. Translator Madina, who accompanied us all the time, just umnichka !!! In all delves into itself. You can all ask her again, she will ask the doctor if you do not understand something or have additional questions before the examination. Two doctor's consultations are included immediately in the cost when you pay only the first - one before the examinations and the second after. It was also possible to ask for other health problems and get advice. There are almost all doctors there. If you want to check on other issues - take with you all the available documents. I was also examined for gynecology, as in Ukraine they put dysplasia of the cervix. The diagnosis was not confirmed in the clinic of Turkey. At the moment, they said that the BSLU does not need to be done and every survey was painted for every 3 months in Ukraine. We thank Constantine and his colleague Julia for their assistance, as well as assistance in organizing a free transfer to Istanbul. Была выявлена поверхностная меланома в ноябре 2016 года. Проведено глубокое иссечение в Киевском онкологическом центре по ул.Верховинная. Толщина меланомы по Бреслоу 0.038 мм. Через полтора года была произведена перепроверка гистологии в Израиле.

После перепроверки, обратившись с помощью к данному ресурсу, Константин предложил пройти обследование в клинике Турции, в Стамбуле. Клиника называется Лив Хоспитал (Liv Hospital). 

Повторно проверили стекла и блоки в Турции. Почти все сошлось с израильскими данными (здесь толщина 0.68 мм; Израиль 0.7 мм) и был обнаружен 1 митоз.

Переводчик Мадина, которая сопровождала нас постоянно, просто умничка!!! Во все вникает и сама. Вы все можете переспросить у нее, она переспросит у врача, если вы чего-то не поняли или возникли дополнительные вопросы перед обследованием.

Две консультации врача включены сразу в стоимость когда оплачиваете только первую - одна до обследований и вторая после.

Также была возможность спросить за другие свои проблемы по здоровью и получить консультацию. Там есть почти все врачи. Если захотите провериться по другим вопросам - берите с собой все имеющиеся документы. Я также обследовалась по гинекологии, так как в Украине ставят дисплазию шейки матки. Диагноз не был подтвержден в клинике Турции.

В данный момент сказали, что БСЛУ не нужно делать и расписали на каждые 3 месяца различные обследования уже в Украине.

Благодарим Константина и его коллегу Юлию за оказанную помощь, а также помощь в организации бесплатного трансфера до Стамбула.

FAQ

Fahad Mawlood

Medical editor

11.12.2013 · Updated 28.10.2019

What is melanoma?

Melanoma is a malignant disease that develops from melanocytes (pigment cells) and can occur in every part of the body. Particular danger of melanoma consists in quick metastasizing.

Melanoma development process is still unclear but specialists underline such risk factors as inherited predisposition, UV radiation and nevus injury.

Types of melanoma

Oncologists classify melanoma according to the level of its invasion (Clark’s scale), thickness (Breslow’s scale), appearance and development scheme.

According to cell types melanoma is divided into:

  • superficial melanoma;
  • nodular melanoma;
  • lentigo melanoma;
  • acral lentiginous melanoma;
  • spindle cell melanoma.

Symptoms of melanoma

Early stages of melanoma are often asymptomatic. A patient can notice development of a new nevus or change of existing nevus (redness, increase). Later stages comprise weight loss, weakness, increase of lymph nodes, etc.

Diagnostics

Complex diagnostics of melanoma includes investigation of the patient’s past medical history, examination of suspicious nevus with dermatoscope and of adjusting lymph nodes. Cancer-specific markers blood test and biopsy can be provided for specification of malignant nature of the disease. If a patient refers to a doctor at later stages comprising metastases, CT, PET-CT or MRI are provided to determine the scope and location of metastases.

Treatment of melanoma at each stage

Medical specialists develop individual program for each case considering general health condition of a patient and specifics of the disease.

Stage 0 involves surgical removal of a tumor. If surgery cannot be performed, topical therapy is applied.

Stage 1 melanoma treatment includes surgical excision of affected nevus with surrounding skin tissues.

For stage 2 melanoma treatment doctors provide expanded tumor excision with biopsy of signal lymph node. Some patients receive interferon alpha as adjuvant drug.

Stage 3 melanoma treatment comprises removal of both tumor and signal lymph node and tumor masses combined with chemo-, beam or combined therapy.

For stage 4 melanoma treatment doctors apply immune, targeted and chemotherapy. Metastases are removed surgically or by using radiotherapy or medication.

Melanoma treatment cost

Melanoma treatment cost depends on many factors:

  • melanoma type;
  • size of tumor;
  • metastases in organism;
  • necessary diagnostic procedures;
  • treatment method;
  • price policy of the hospital in the particular country.

Each melanoma patient receives individual diagnostic and treatment program comprising all these factors.

Procedure Turkey Germany Israel
Advanced diagnostics + Melanoma removal from 11732$ - from 15910$
