Male breast cancer: detection at an advanced stage

When a man examines his body in the shower in the morning or in the evening after a workout, he should be attentive. He is probably one of those men who are at risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer, and in Germany, this number reaches about 700 men a year.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. About 69,000 new cases are reported annually. Almost every patient asks themselves a question of proper nutrition. First of all, this means that one should eat healthy food.

Mastectomy: information on breast removal surgery

About 70–80% of all tumours can be removed while preserving the breast. However, if the tumour is very large and malignant, or it involves a skin lesion or formation of multiple tumours in different regions of the breast, a mastectomy will be usually performed.

The haematology centre, led by Professor M.D. Bertram Glass, uses the latest methods to treat leukaemia, such as monoclonal antibody therapy and tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Immune therapy is also widely used. The clinic is provided with the most advanced equipment available. In addition, thanks to a government system for regulating prices and excess funding, the cost of treatment for foreign patients is among the lowest in Germany.

 The stem cell transplant department occupies a separate wing of the clinic, and as of today, it is one of the most modern in the world. Thanks to access to the largest donor banks, the latest technology and methods, hundreds of patients are given a chance to recover each year.

Don't be afraid of radiotherapy

We know that in spite of the yearly progress of radiotherapy, many people still fear this effective treatment method: radiation can't be seen, and everything invisible seems dangerous.

But radiation can be measured – it can be planned and directed with absolute accuracy to precisely the area to be irradiated.

This means we use only as much radiation as is required, and as little as possible. In the hands of your attending physician, radiation is like an invisible and incredibly accurate scalpel. This makes it a strong ally in the fight against malignant diseases.

General, Visceral and Oncological Surgery

The use of chemotherapy in the abdominal cavity allows our surgeons to fight the tumour cells directly at their place of origin. This is either done with a warm solution as „Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy“ (HIPEC) or with a new method called „Pressurised Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy“ (PIPAC). 

A whole range of other treatment methods such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA), chemoembolisation or the local application of radioactive substances are used in addition to every other known, useful and promising treatment method in oncology.
