Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

Recommended For Blastoma Treatment

As we saw above, some kinds of blastoma are more difficult to detect than others and can be mistaken for other illnesses easily. Because of that, parents should take care of to the medical issues of their child and not disregard common symptoms at all, for instance, a cough unless likely to deal it with normal medicines. That is because, in late stages, the chance of assisting the patient is very limited and at times the single choice that is promising is palliative care.

Overview

Blastoma is a type of cancer acting on commonly named precursor cells (or blasts). Glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, pleuropulmonary blastoma, and retinoblastoma are some of the blastoma kinds. Blastoma saw particularly in children because it is an illness associated with growth. Blastoma is a broad term; diverse blastoma kinds act on lungs, eyes, or brain. That's why cancer treatment of a blastoma may be in diverse ways, relying upon the area and stages of cancer.



Kinds of Blastoma
• Glioblastoma regarded as the toughest to struggle with between all brain cancers. Symptoms involve memory difficulties, aggression, lack of criticism and changes in personality.


• Neuroblastoma acts on nerves, particularly in younger children. Symptoms of neuroblastoma are difficulties in breathing and swallowing, difficulties associated with proper urination, energy loss and others.
• Retinoblastoma is a blastoma growing in one’s eye. In several instances, retinoblastoma is inherited, whereas in others it is associated with a mutation in one of the chromosomes.
• Pleuropulmonary Blastoma develops in the lungs or pleural cavity. Pleuropulmonary blastoma generally emerges as secondary cancer in children but likewise in adults. Among Pleuropulmonary blastoma are difficulties with breathing, chest pain and shortness of breath.
Some other blastoma cancer instances are ameloblastoma, nephroblastoma, hepatoblastoma, and others.

Preparation

Your medical team should be informed concerning your medical history and medications, in order for them to plan you a safe treatment and not use drugs that can do harm to you. Supposing that your treatment of blastoma will be a surgery, you should fast for a couple of hours before the surgery and comply with other instructions set by specialists. As for chemotherapy and radiation therapy, they do not need any special preparation.

How It Is Performed

The decision of the treatment option relies upon the stage of the cancer. For instance, if a patient has stage 4 glioblastoma, a glioblastoma multiforme surgery cannot be performed. All options for blastoma treatment are:
• For early blastoma cancer stages, a surgery is generally an ideal decision. Specialists generally carry out glioblastoma multiforme surgery, neuroblastoma surgery and resection for other blastoma kinds.
•In order to support surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are generally used. In chemotherapy, powerful medications used to destroy cancer cells, whereas in radiation therapy radioactive elements are used for the similar intentions.
• Other kinds of blastoma cancer treatment comprise immunotherapy which purposes to strengthen the patient’s immune system, and targeted therapy.

Recovery

Blastoma treatment, particularly with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, may last months and the recovery period can be even longer, such as, years. For surgery, it relies upon the treated place – for all kinds of blastoma, the recovery period is differing, for instance, for glioblastoma surgery and retinoblastoma treatment.

Risks

Blastoma cancer treatment may cause numerous complications, including the damage to internal organs, bleeding and infections. Additionally, chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause neurological problems or even infertility.

Side Effects

Particularly chemotherapy and radiation therapy may result in numerous side effects. These comprise:
• Memory and concentration issues
• Hair loss
• Weight loss
• Nausea, vomiting

Success Rates

As blastoma is a broad category, we cannot say a standardized success rate. We should look for specific blastoma kinds. For instance, survival rate of glioblastoma is 15-16 months for 50% of the patients. Whereas, 5-year survival rate of neuroblastoma is as high as 80%.

Faq

What Is Blastoma?
Blastoma is one of the kinds of cancer, in which precursor cells are attacked by cancer. For that reason it is predominantly found in young patients.

What are the Blastoma kinds?
Blastoma kinds consist of glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, nephroblastoma, ameloblastoma, retinoblastoma and pleuropulmonary blastoma.

What Is the Best Blastoma Cancer Treatment Available?
Kind of blastoma treatment used by specialist relies upon cancer stages and other factors. It is not possible to say that surgery is better than chemotherapy since they often are used at the same time, have different effects and can be used in different stages of blastoma cancer.
