Cancer can be dealt with by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatment, hormonal treatment, and focused on treatment (counting immunotherapy, for example, monoclonal counter acting agent treatment). The decision of treatment relies on the area and grade of the tumor and the phase of the illness, and additionally the general condition of the patient (execution status). Various trial growth medicines are additionally a work in progress. Since “malignancy” alludes to a class of sicknesses, it is far-fetched that there will ever be a solitary “cure for Cancer” any more than there will be a solitary treatment for every irresistible diseas.
The procedure of discovering a treatment office and discovering an oncologist (a specialist who works in treating malignancy) are typically firmly connected. At the point when picking either an oncologist or a treatment office one ought to hold up under as a primary concern a few viewpoints like verifying that the specialist or the office is particularly prepared to handle a certain kind of malignancy.

As part of the Professor Stehling Institute for Diagnostic Imaging, Dr. Michael Stehling founded the Prostate-Center in 2010 to provide patients with minimally invasive procedures and treatment for prostate diseases. These procedures are significant, as currently used options often leave male patients with incontinence or impotence – both of which decrease the quality of life. The Prostate Center offers the most advanced treatment options to diagnose and manage this form of cancer. Two goals are very important to the center – maintain the quality of life and ensure survival for cancer patients.
Experts from around the world come to the Prostate Center to offer patients specialized, nurturing care. In an effort to provide patients with the highest level of care, specialists from the USA, Europe and Asia in fields such as Radiology, Urology, Pathology and Anesthesiology offer experience and education for patients seeking treatment.
What makes the Prostate Center different from other facilities around the world? Minimally invasive therapies are provided that have little to no side effects – as opposed to the drastically invasive therapy that creates the risk of increasingly dramatic side effects.

Since 2012, an outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus has affected several countries, especially the Middle East. The virus, which causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), is a newly emerged beta coronavirus that was first identified in a ptient from Saudi Arabia in April 2012. Most infections with human coronaviruses are mild and associated with common colds. However, both MERS-CoV and SARS CoV (severe acute respiratory syndrome) are betacoronaviruses. MERS-CoV likely came from a camel in the Arabian Peninsula.
MERS is not MRSA
Do not confuse MERS with MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) which is a strain of staph bacteria that is resistant to the antibiotics normally used to treat such infections. MRSA affects patients with weakened immune systems or those who had recently undergone surgery. Staph skin infections start off as a small, red bump that resembles a spider bite — these infections can progress quickly, turning into swollen, painful abscesses, which doctors need to surgically drain. If the bacteria burrow deeper, they can cause infections throughout the body, including in the bloodstream, heart, bones, joints, lungs and surgical wounds, which can result in chest pain, fever and even death.

There is no doubt that medical science has come a long way from drilling a hole in your head in order to exorcise the demons when you had a cold. Nowadays organ transplants are being performed daily. Some of the most popular are kidney, liver, heart and lung transplants. The benefits are staggering. It helps patients with terminal diseases or organ failure due to various traumas start anew. In some cases, transplanting a healthy organ into a patient helps other organs work better and become themselves healthier.
As with all medical procedures, may they be made inside your own country or abroad, they involve a certain amount of risk. This risk is proportional to where you choose to have your procedure. It depends a great deal firstly on the legal bindings of the country that you are visiting. Some countries like Turkey and India, that signed the Istanbul Declaration regarding organ trafficking and organ commercialism, are opposed to people from other countries simply coming and buying their way into operating theaters, with organs bought off of living donors, while others have to wait for deceased donors, which most of the times aren’t enough.
In this Video you will learn more about the Risks and Benefits of Transplant Tourism.

Dry macular degeneration is a chronic disease which affects the eyes, causing blindness in the center of the field of vision. The disease is age-related and is caused by the deteriorating of the tissue on the inside of the back wall of the eyeball. Another form of macular degeneration is wet macular degeneration. This is caused by the leaking of blood from blood cells grown under the retina in the back of the eye.

Asia has become the go-to destination for medical tourism as hospitals from Seoul to Singapore add technology and well-trained physicians to their teams.

Emiratis can now travel through Europe without applying for visas after the European Parliament recently waived requirements. The waiver allows UAE citizens to travel through the 26 Schengen countries without applying for visas, as well as eight non-Schengen states: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Romania, the Vatican, Andorra, San Marino and Monaco.
The 26 Schengen states are Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
UAE citizens still travel abroad for medical treatment
A Gallup survey of more than 4,000 GCC nationals found 87 % of Emiratis are satisfied with the quality and accessibility of healthcare in the UAE. The country came second behind Qatar. Despite the large majority claiming happiness with the health system, 39 % would still prefer to be treated abroad.
Earlier surveys repeatedly showed dissatisfaction with the UAE’s health care. In a 2009 survey for The National, over half of Emiratis said they would travel abroad for treatment.
Figures released by the Health Authority – Abu Dhabi, show the number of Emiratis sent abroad for healthcare dropped by nearly half between 2010 and 2011. From 2,858 in 2010 to 1,451 in 2011. Oncology and orthopedic surgery accounted for a large proportion of referrals abroad.
Figures from the International Medical Travel Journal show nearly 30,000 Emiratis travel abroad for medical treatment every year. The still somewhat high number is due to lack of local specialist knowledge and gaps in service. In Abu Dhabi staffing remains a challenge to maintaining the high standard of care.
In 2012, a study surveyed more than 2,000 people – about one quarter of them expatriates – who traveled abroad for treatment from 2009 until the end of 2011. Emiratis and expatriates who had gone overseas for health care were questioned for Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and results analysed by the Dubai Statistics Centre.
In many countries, patients rely on the ‘family doctor’ or general practitioner, who will diagnose the symptoms and refer the patient to the suited specialist. In the UAE, people tend to rely on what they hear from friends, or what they read online, and they do not acquire the correct information, according to Laila Al Jassmi, CEO Health Policy & Strategy Sector at Dubai Health Authority.

Dental Jewellery, a Cool Fashion Trend in Asia
People are becoming increasingly selfconscious about their appearance and smile. They are looking for various treatments like body art and cosmetic dental treatments to achieve the desired aesthetic appearance and to make a fashion statement. You might have noticed the recent popularity of tooth jewelry and DIY braces, in light of a fashion trend that seems to have originated in Asia. Oral tooth jewellery is for all patients who want a dazzling smile. Gems can be either drilled in permanently, glued on using dental grade adhesive, or for a less permanent solution, gemstone kits are readily available for home use.
Professional Tooth Jewel Application
Before the application of the jewel your dentist will examine the teeth for any dental work that might need to be done. If any problems are found then these should generally be treated before undergoing application. In particular a dentist will want to be sure that the enamel of the chosen tooth is strong and healthy. If your dentist feels the chosen tooth is not strong enough to uphold the gem then they may suggest a different location for the gem.
The professional method of application can be done in two ways:
– The permanent method
– The less permanent method

After decades in turmoil since gaining its independence in 1960, Nigeria is taking bolder towards a stronger health care system and a healthier population.
We have analyzed a few of the issues still needed to be taken into account by the nigerian health system and seen how medical tourism is an important factor for its development.
Despite its vast resources, Nigeria ranks among the most unequal countries in the world. The poverty in the North is in contrast to the more developed Southern states. The oil is located in Southern Nigeria and delegates from oil-producing areas want local communities to keep more of the revenue it generates. However, poverty levels are far higher in the North and delegates from non-oil-producing resist such moves. Oil states keep 25% of the oil revenue they earn and hand the rest to the federal government. Nigeria is one of the world’s biggest oil producers but most of its 170 million people live in poverty.
Nigeria loses huge sums in capital flight to medical tourism, as most of the nation’s hospitals lack the modern equipment needed for effective diagnosis and treatment. There is also shortages of medical material and the blood supply of the country is not considered safe. Hygiene conditions are problematic, especially outside the large cities. Nigeria’s public healthcare system has deteriorated because of a lack of resources and a “brain drain” syndrome of Nigerian doctors as well as skilled health workers to other countries.
Even when there are adequate facilities and well-trained personnel, some wealthy Nigerians still prefer to travel abroad for different reasons – showing off the elevated status and wealth, the lack of trust and confidence in the Nigerian healthcare delivery system. The money being wasted on foreign medical trips yearly accounts for millions of dollars. They should be properly channeled into providing and establishing world-class hospitals in different parts of the country which would benefit both the rich and the poor.
Facts about Nigeria
Life expectancy: 52/54 years
Income per capita: $ 2,290

One in every nine women will be stricken with breast cancer in their life, or in other words, approximately two million women across the next twenty years. Surgery is usually the first line of attack against breast cancer. The thought of surgery can be frightening. But having a better understanding of what to expect before, during, and after the operation can help. You and your doctor will determine the kind of surgery that is most appropriate for you based on the stage of the cancer and what is acceptable to you in terms of your long-term peace of mind.
What are your breast surgery options in Italy?
Breast cancer is a disease resulting from the malignant transformation of some breast cells that grow autonomously and acquire the ability to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and organs and migrate to other parts of the body which then nestle and form metastases.
Surgery is often needed to remove a breast tumor, but prevention and the appropriate treatments have shown to reduce the damage that breast cancer can cause. Thanks to prevention and care, the survival rate is clearly progressively increasing.
Relying on a Center of Excellence like IEO for prevention, early and accurate diagnosis of breast cancer and its biological characteristics, and treatments maximise the probability of complete cure.
The various expertise in Radiology, Surgery, Medical Oncology, Radiotherapy, Chemoprevention, Nuclear Medicine and other specialties involved in the management of breast cancer patients work together in order to define the best approach for every single case. Personalised diagnosis, treatment and follow up is the strategy that allow IEO to achieve optimal results in terms of cure, disease control, quality of life.
That’s why the IEO Breast Program that brings together all Divisions and Units competent in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer has been created. Breast cancer treatment is multidisciplinary. It is not enough to only speak about surgery, radiotherapy or pharmacotherapy without integrating the various disciplines.
Most women with breast cancer have some type of surgery; options for this include breast-conserving surgery and mastectomy. The breast can be reconstructed at the same time as surgery or later on. Surgery is also used to check the lymph nodes under the arm for cancer spread. Options for this include a sentinel lymph node biopsy and an axillary (armpit) lymph node dissection.

The stem cells, once transplanted into the patient’s body, have to integrate and differentiate in order to create (‘give birth’) to new, healthy cells, depending on the area in which they have been added. For example, in the case of neurological diseases treated with stem cells, they will have to differentiate into specific types of neurons and, furthermore, once implanted, they will have to know with which types of neurons to connect.
Stem cell clinics worldwide are focused on researching, being up to date and applying the latest therapies for a wide range of diseases. The new and improved technology used makes the treatment process easier and more facile.

Imagine visiting your dentist for a surgical procedure, but going through it without any scalpels, needles and stitches. The laser treatment is a much more comfortable alternative to the traditional procedures as it requires less anesthesia. Also, the aftermath can be much more pleasant. Hospitals in India are known for their state-of-the art dentistry laser technologies. India has world’s top-rated laser dentists who have years of experience and knowledge dentistry which include general, cosmetic and restoration dentistry.
Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1990 and there are more than 40 uses for it. Initially lasers were very expensive, but now they have become much cheaper, and portable models have increased its versatility. Laser is an acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”. Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle removal, hair removal etc., and thousands of dentists around the world have performed millions of procedures with less need for shots, anesthesia, drills and post-op numb lips.
How Do Lasers Work in Dentistry?
Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with.
When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents. Lasers are also used to remove decay within a tooth, to reshape gums and remove bacteria during root canal procedures, to remove a small piece of tissue (biopsy) so that it can be examined for cancer, to remove lesions in the mouth.
The application of lasers in dentistry opens the door for dentists to perform a wide variety of dental procedures they otherwise may not be capable of performing. Read more about “Laser Dentistry Procedures”
