Methods of cancer treatment in Germany

 

There is a large number of various oncological diseases. Different techniques are used for their treatment. There are three main techniques:

  • surgical cancer treatment options,
  • radiation therapy,
  • chemotherapy.

In the treatment of oncology in Germany, different techniques play different roles. In treating many types of cancer, the primary method is surgery since it is important to carry out the physical removal of the tumor. However, in some cases, other methods are the main ones. For example, in leukemia (blood cancer), chemotherapy remains the leading treatment technique. In the case of brain cancer, radiation therapy may be the main method.

  • Photodynamic therapy is the injection of sensitizers into the body followed by irradiation with light beams of a certain wavelength.
  • Targeted therapy is the prescription of monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors, angiogenesis inhibitors and other groups of drugs.
  • Immunotherapy is the use of a person's immunity resources in the fight against the tumor.
  • Radionuclide therapy is the injection of therapeutic radioactive substances into the body. They are accumulated in the tumor cells and then destroy these cells.
  • Radiosurgery is the removal of oncological formations in one session with accurately directed large doses of radiation.
  • Vascular embolization is a procedure that disrupts the blood supply of a tumor; as a result, cancer cells die.
  • Hormone therapy is used in cancer of the reproductive system.

Treatment of cancer in Germany

 

Many patients strive to go to Germany for the treatment of cancer because medicine is well developed in this country. The high-tech operations, the newest types of radiation therapy, and modern drugs are used here. Innovative cancer therapies are constantly being implemented into clinical practice in Germany.

The following techniques are used in this country:

  • Minimally invasive surgical interventions in malignant oncologic formations at the early stages. For example, video-assisted thoracic surgery without thoracotomy is used here for lung cancer. Bowel cancer can be removed with access through the rectum. Many operations are performed using laparoscopic access (through minimal incisions in the abdominal wall).
  • Robot-assisted surgeries are carried out with the participation of a robotic system which a surgeon manages. Such interventions are safer. The human factor is completely excluded, the blood loss is reduced, and there is no risk of infection.
  • Oncoplastic surgeries in breast cancer allow not only to remove the tumor but also to restore the attractive appearance of the female breast.
  • Bronchoplastic operations at the advanced stages of lung cancer make it possible to remove large tumors and preserve the areas of functional lung parenchyma.
  • Intraoperative fluorescence diagnostics. During the operation, the specific substances are injected. They stain the tumor tissues making them visible to the surgeon. This allows the doctor to completely remove the tumor and avoid a relapse.

In Germany, the latest radiation therapy methods are used to treat cancer. They ensure accurate targeting, increasing the radiation dose for a tumor and reducing the irradiation for healthy tissues.

New chemotherapy regimens are applied. Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy is used for the treatment of bowel cancer when the abdominal cavity is washed with a heated chemotherapy solution in order to destroy micrometastases.

In Germany, radionuclide therapy is used in certain types of cancer. It is widely used in metastatic prostate cancer. Being injected into the body, radiopharmaceuticals are accumulated in cancer cells. They can destroy the tumor areas, regardless of their location in the human body.
