Here, I’m going to tell you how cancer treatment in Iran is reasonable for you in both financial and remedial aspects.
Let’s talk about cancer in detail
There are over 100 types of cancer which people are now trying to deal with. Depending on each country’s facilities, technologies, and specialists different countries offer various cancer treatments. There are different types of cancer treatment that using each of them depends on the type of cancer and the stage of the disease. The most frequently used cancer treatment in Iran is chemotherapy. Still, depending on each patient’s condition, this method can be performed singly or in combination with other types of cancer treatment such as radiotherapy, surgery, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and stem cell therapy. Any of these cancer treatment methods can be performed independently or in a joining with other methods depending on the patient’s condition and in order to obtain the most proper outcome.
Here I’m going to mention some common cancer types which are being treated in Iran by the hands of the most experienced specialists.
Breast cancer treatment in Iran
Breast cancer is now the second most common cancer diagnosed among women all around the world. The disease forms when breast cells mutate (change) and multiply uncontrollably, forming a tumor. If untreated, cancerous cells may spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer experts in Iran target breast cancer tumors with an array of treatments and technologies. Common treatments of breast cancer include surgery(for most breast cancer patients, surgery is a part of the treatment process. Iranian oncologists have the expertise and capabilities to treat advanced breast tumors that involve the chest wall, and they also perform palliative surgeries to eliminate pain and increase patients’ comfort level), chemotherapy(This treatment method is typically recommended for patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer), hormone therapy(Breast cancers that test positive for certain hormones may be treated with hormone-blocking therapy to slow or stop the cancer cells from growing or metastasizing), radiation therapy(When a breast tumor is large or not easily removed with surgery, radiation therapy before surgery may be used to help shrink the tumor. After breast-sparing surgery, radiation treatments may help destroy remaining breast cancer cells), and targeted therapy(These medications are designed to shut down the HER2 gene, cutting off the cancer cells’ energy supply).
In the past, due to removing all the lymph glands in the patient’s armpit during the surgery of breast cancer treatment, the consequences used to be so painful and uncomfortable; swelling of hand, sense of heavy feeling and severe pain in patient’s arm were the common difficulties after the breast cancer treatment, whether by a surgery or a radiotherapy. But thanks to the brilliant medical progresses in Iran during recent years these consequences had turned to the minimum possible level , according to a breast surgery specialist Dr. Maryam Tabatabaeian who said: “Like in Europe, breast cancer surgery has made significant progress in Iran and there is no need to remove all the lymph glands in patient’s armpit during surgery.”
Breast cancer surgery in Iran is now being updated with the world’s most modern technology, accordingly not only the domestic patients use these facilities but also patients from all around the world attend Iran in order to undergo a breast treatment surgery in Iran. Dr. Tabatabaeian who is a member of Breast Cancer Research Center in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences also added: “in this new method, only one to three lymph glands are removed with the minimal cutting, so that complications related to this part of surgery reach their lowest level, therefore, patients should not be concerned about the complications after surgery.”
Therefore, this won’t be just a claim that Iran sophisticated with advanced breast cancer treatment surgery; because with a quick glance at the high-ranked successful surgery results, along with completely affordable costs in comparison with other countries, it’s quite obvious that performing such surgery in Iran is going to be a very sensible choice of your’s.
