After losing a significant amount of weight, I had excess skin around my abdomen that no amount of exercise could fix. Dr. Juan Luis Muñoz performed my abdominoplasty, and the results were amazing. My stomach is now flat and firm, and the scars are minimal and well-hidden. I highly recommend him to anyone considering this procedure.

My daughter was twelve months old when we noticed unusual symptoms and body movements in her. We had no family history of autism, but I had sufficient knowledge about this condition. We took her to a doctor at Teknon Medical Center and discussed her symptoms. The doctor started ABA therapy for her, and it worked well. Now she is three years old, and 70% of her symptoms have been reduced. Thanks to her amazing doctor.

I got my tumor removed at Quironsalud Teknon Medical Center. Although it was a benign tumor, I was extremely worried, but the doctors at Teknon Medical Center made everything easy. I had to undergo two sessions of radiation therapy, but I am glad to announce that the tumor is gone. I am extremely grateful to ClinicsonCall for connecting me to Teknon Medical Center.

I recently had a PET MRI Scan at Teknon Medical Center, and I must say that the experience was surprisingly comfortable. From the moment I walked in, the staff made sure I felt at ease, taking the time to explain the procedure and address any concerns. The technicians were incredibly patient and understanding, making sure I was comfortable before starting the scan. The facility itself was clean and well-maintained, contributing to an overall positive experience. I appreciate the care I received at Teknon Medical Center during my scan.

I recently received treatment for Arachnoiditis at Quironsalud Hospital Barcelona, and I wanted to share my experience with you. I have been suffering from Arachnoiditis for years and have tried various treatments with little to no relief. However, I am happy to report that my Arachnoiditis treatment was life-changing. The staff at Quironsalud Barcelona were incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. The treatment involved a combination of medication and therapy, and I was impressed by the level of personalization that went into creating my individualized treatment plan. Throughout the process, I felt I was in good hands and that my care was a top priority. After completing the treatment, I can confidently say that my symptoms have improved significantly. I am experiencing less pain and discomfort, and I am able to enjoy many activities that I had previously given up on. I am truly grateful to the team at this clinic for their expertise and dedication to helping patients like me.

I recently underwent treatment for a spinal cyst, and I must say that the care I received at Quironsalud Hospital Madrid was exceptional. My symptoms were quite debilitating and had been affecting my quality of life for some time, but the doctors and staff at the hospital were incredibly compassionate and attentive to my needs. The diagnostic process was thorough and efficient, and my doctor explained everything to me so that I knew exactly what was happening. The treatment plan was tailored to my situation, and the surgical procedure went smoothly without complications. After the surgery, I received excellent follow-up care, with regular check-ins to monitor my progress and ensure I was recovering well. I am feeling much better now and can enjoy my daily activities without pain or discomfort. I am satisfied with the care I received and would highly recommend this hospital to anyone in need of similar treatment.

I recently experienced an Intracranial Hematoma, which was a scary and challenging situation to deal with. It started with a sudden and severe headache, followed by nausea and vomiting, and then I started feeling confused and disoriented. I was rushed to the Quironsalud Hospital Madrid, where I underwent a CT scan that showed bleeding in my brain. The doctors quickly diagnosed me with an Intracranial Hematoma and took me into surgery to remove the clot. The procedure was successful, and I am grateful to the skilled medical team that saved my life. The recovery process was not easy, as I had to spend some time in the ICU and then in a rehabilitation center to regain my strength and mobility. I also had to take medication to prevent seizures and manage my pain. Now, several months after the incident, I am still dealing with some residual symptoms, such as headaches and memory problems. However, I am slowly but surely regaining my independence and returning to my normal activities.

I recently underwent MRI-Guided Stereotactic Laser Ablation for a brain tumor at Quironsalud Madrid, and I have to say that the procedure was nothing short of amazing. The team of doctors who performed the procedure were incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, and they explained everything to me in detail so that I knew what to expect. They also ensured that I was comfortable throughout the process and that all my questions were answered. The procedure was quick and painless, and I could go home the same day. I had some mild discomfort and headache for a few days afterwards, but it was nothing that could not be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. I am incredibly grateful for the care and attention that I received.

I had a medical emergency while vacationing in Mexico. This was the second time I had an episode like this. The first time was in the United States after 14 days I was not able to get a diagnosis. I was admitted to Valencia Hospital in March. Dr. Lozano was my physician, from the minute, I met him. I knew that I was going to receive great care. I was able to leave the hospital four days later with a diagnosis something that wasn’t done for me in the states. His diagnostic abilities are excellent. I received great care, Dr. Lozano and Valencia Hospital.

I was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) after my premature birth. Initially, my parents were very worried about my health and future development, but with the help of my doctors and therapists at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia, I have been able to make progress and reach important milestones. Living with PVL has its challenges, including motor difficulties, speech delays, and learning disabilities. However, I have received great support from my family, caregivers, and medical team, who have worked tirelessly to provide me with the best possible care and interventions. Although PVL is a lifelong condition, I am determined to keep pushing myself and achieving my goals. I am grateful for the love and care I have received, and I am optimistic about my future. My team at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia is very supportive.

I was diagnosed with an AVM a few months ago, and it was quite scary to learn about this condition. However, I am very grateful to have been able to receive proper treatment and care from my doctors at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia. Initially, I did not know much about AVMs and was concerned about what the diagnosis would mean for my health. My doctors did a great job explaining the condition to me and the treatment options available. They recommended that I undergo embolization followed by surgery to remove the AVM. The procedure itself was not too difficult, and I was able to return home the next day. The recovery process was a bit more challenging, but my medical team gave me great support and care. They made sure that I was comfortable and provided me with all the necessary information. Now that I have fully recovered, I feel grateful for the care I received and the successful treatment. I feel much better and am able to resume my daily activities without any problems.

As a patient diagnosed with an aneurysm of the cerebral artery, I wanted to share my experience to help others who may be going through the same thing. Firstly, the diagnosis itself was a shock. I had been experiencing some mild headaches, but I never expected to be told that I had a bulge in the blood vessel in my brain. The medical team at Quironsalud Valencia was very reassuring, and they explained the condition to me in detail, which helped me understand what was happening. The treatment process was also smooth. I was offered two options: surgery or endovascular coiling. After careful consideration, I chose endovascular coiling. The procedure was performed under local anesthesia, and I could go home the next day. I experienced some headaches and fatigue for a few days, but overall, it was smooth. I had to take some time off work to rest, but after a week or so, I could resume my normal activities.

Prior to the surgery, I was experiencing chronic back pain and limited mobility. My doctor at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia recommended this procedure to address the root cause of my discomfort. The surgery itself was relatively straightforward, and my recovery time was minimal. Within a few weeks, I noticed a significant improvement. I no longer experience the constant pain I had grown accustomed to, and I can move around more freely. The reconstruction surgery has truly been life-changing for me. I can now enjoy activities I had previously given up on due to my back pain. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who is experiencing similar issues.

I was diagnosed with post-traumatic plexopathy after a serious car accident that left me with severe pain and weakness in my arm. My doctor recommended post-traumatic plexopathy treatment, and I am so grateful I followed his advice. The treatment was comprehensive and tailored to my specific needs, and the team of medical professionals at Quironsalud Hospital Marbella were incredibly knowledgeable, skilled, and compassionate. Over the course of several months, I received physical therapy and nerve blocks. The team worked with me every step of the way to make sure that I was comfortable and understood the process. I also appreciated that they kept me informed about my progress and adjusted my treatment plan as needed. My pain has significantly decreased, and my arm strength has improved. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone struggling with similar conditions.

My knees were killing me, and my family doctor suggested a total knee replacement. I was referred to Quironsalud Torrevieja Hospital. The hospital's services were brilliant. They spoke wonderful English and went over everything. The surgery was excellent, and I was able to recover without any problems. I also had physical therapy after the procedure. It was painful, but it made a significant impact! I am now free of pain. Thanks to Quironsalud Hospital.

What are the Advantages of Choosing Spanish Hospitals for Mediastinal Tumor Treatment?

  • Healthcare in Spain is generally considered to be of high quality and affordable. Spanish clinics offer medical treatment at a 10% lower cost than Germany, the USA and Israel. This can be especially beneficial for patients who require long-term treatment or multiple procedures.
  • The best Clinics for Mediastinal Tumor in Spain are
    • Quironsalud Hospital Valencia- An ISO-certified clinic that offers high-quality services to local and international patients. It has the availability of TrueBeam 2.7 linear accelerator and a portable electron linear accelerator (MOBETRON INTRAOP), which is specifically used for cancer treatments
    • Hospital Ruber Internacional- The hospital has a team of over 800 healthcare professionals, including specialists, and has received certification of excellence from DVN-GL and ISO 50001.
  • The best Mediastinal Tumor Doctors in Spain are:
    • Dr. Aurora Rodriguez Pérez is a certified radio-oncologist and the Head of Ruber International Hospital. She has experience of more than 20 years in cancer diseases.
    • Dr. Pedro Bretcha Boix is a leading oncologist at Quironsalud Hospital Torrevieja. He has been serving cancer patients for more than 20 years now.

How is the Diagnosis of Mediastinal Tumor Done in Spain?

Spanish surgeons perform diagnosis using different imaging techniques. The following steps are preferred to diagnose a mediastinal tumor:

  • Medical history and physical examination: Your oncologist will ask about your medical history and any symptoms you may be experiencing. It will include a physical examination of your chest and neck.
  • Imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans are used to visualize the mediastinal area and detect the presence of a tumor. These tests can also help determine the tumour's size, location, and characteristics.
  • A biopsy involves taking a tissue sample from the tumor and examining it under a microscope to determine whether it is cancerous or non-cancerous. There are several methods for performing a biopsy, including a needle biopsy, mediastinoscopy, or thoracoscopy.
  • In a mediastinoscopy, the doctor makes a small incision at the base of the neck to look directly or with a small camera to observe any masses around the airway.
  • Bronchoscopy is used to examine the airways of the lungs, including the trachea, bronchi, and bronchioles, using a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it.
  • Blood tests help detect specific tumor markers or check for abnormalities in blood cell counts that may indicate the presence of a tumor.

Treatment Options for Tumor of the Mediastinum in Spain

Spanish oncologists consider the patient’s medical history and overall health to determine an appropriate treatment plan. It can be a surgical approach or a combination of radiation techniques. Some of the treatment options are discussed below:

Radiotherapy

  • It is a common treatment option for mediastinal tumors, and the goal is to kill cancer cells using high-energy radiation beams.
  • The radiation oncologist uses computer software to create an accurate dose plan that delivers the radiation to the mediastinal tumor while minimizing exposure to healthy tissues and organs.
  • During the session, you will lie on a table, and a machine called a linear accelerator delivers the radiation beams, which lasts several minutes.
  • Depending on your case, you may receive radiotherapy for several weeks, with treatments scheduled every day or several times per week.

Chemotherapy

  • It is considered one of the treatment options for mediastinal tumors. Oncologists use drugs to destroy cancer cells.
  • The specific chemotherapy regimen used for mediastinal tumor treatment depends on factors such as the type and stage of the tumor, the patient's overall health, and other individual factors.
  • Chemotherapy drugs for mediastinal tumors are usually given through a vein or a peripheral intravenous (IV) line, or a central venous catheter (CVC).

Surgeries for Tumor of the Mediastinum in Spain

Surgery is the primary treatment option to remove mediastinal tumors. Although surgery is not suitable for each patient, following surgical procedures are performed for mediastinal tumor removal.

Sternotomy

  • It is a surgical procedure in which the sternum, or breastbone, is divided to provide access to the thoracic cavity. This procedure is commonly used in the treatment of mediastinal tumors.
  • During a sternotomy, you will be given general anesthesia. The surgeon then makes an incision in the center of the chest, from the top of the sternum to the bottom. The sternum is then divided, and the two halves are spread apart to provide access to the mediastinum.
  • Once the mediastinum is exposed, the surgeon can identify and remove the mediastinal tumor.
  • After removing the tumour, the sternum is typically wired back together, and the incision is closed. You will typically spend five to seven days in the hospital.

Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS)

  • Another minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat mediastinal tumors. During VATS, a surgeon makes several small incisions in the chest wall, through which a camera and surgical instruments are inserted to perform the surgery.
  • You will stay in the side position with the affected lung facing up. A camera is inserted through one of the incisions to provide a visual guide for the surgeon.
  • The surgeon dissects the tissue surrounding the mediastinal tumor using specialised instruments, separating it from the surrounding organs and structures.
  • Once the tissue has been dissected, the surgeon removes the tumor through one of the incisions.
  • After tumor removal, the incisions are closed using sutures or staples. You need to stay in the hospital for three to five days.

Thymectomy

  • Surgeons perform this procedure to remove the thymus gland located in the mediastinum (the area between the lungs).
  • The procedure for thymectomy typically involves making an incision in the chest or neck to access the thymus gland.
  • Once the thymus gland is exposed, it is carefully removed from the surrounding tissues. If the tumor is attached to other structures, it may also need to be removed.
  • After removing the thymus gland, the incision is closed using sutures or staples. You will be monitored in the hospital for three days to ensure that there are no complications.
  • Additional treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, may also be necessary, depending on the type and stage of the mediastinal tumour.

Recovery after Mediastinal Tumor

  • Immediately after surgery, you will be shifted to ICU to ensure no bleeding or breathing difficulties. Pain management will also be a key component of the recovery process.
  • The nursing staff will encourage you to move around and perform breathing exercises to help prevent complications such as blood clots and pneumonia.
  • It is important for you to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your surgical team, which may include restrictions on physical activity, wound care, and medications.
  • You may also need to attend rehabilitation or physical therapy sessions to regain strength and mobility.
  • Overall, the recovery process after mediastinal tumor removal can be challenging, but with proper medical care and support, you can make a full recovery and return to normal activities within six to eight weeks.

Reviews about treatment of tumor of the mediastinum in Spain

Radiotherapy | Tumor of the Mediastinum | Quironsalud Valencia Hospital
Shian Bain

The patient review has been verified Patients Reviews Policy

, Nigeria:
  I was diagnosed with a mediastinal tumor a few months ago and was understandably nervous about the treatment process. However, thanks to my incredible medical team at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia and their expertise in treating this type of tumor using radiotherapy, I was able to receive top-notch care and support throughout my journey. The treatment was challenging, but my doctors and nurses were always there to answer my questions and ease my concerns. Despite the difficulties, I am happy to say that my tumor is shrinking, and my health is improving.

FAQs

What is the most common mediastinal mass tumor?

In adults, the most common tumors are thymomas and lymphomas. Thymomas are tumors of the thymus gland and account for about 20% of mediastinal tumors (NCBI). Lymphomas arise from lymphocytes and account for about 25% of mediastinal tumors (NCBI). In children, the most common tumors are neurogenic tumors, which arise from the nervous tissue. These include neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroma, and ganglioneuroblastoma.

What are the risks of mediastinal surgery?

There is always a risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Excessive bleeding may sometimes require blood transfusions or additional surgical intervention. The surgery increases the risk of infection, which can be especially dangerous in the chest cavity. The nerves that control breathing and other vital functions run through the mediastinum, so there is a risk of nerve damage. This can cause breathing problems, paralysis, pneumonia, blood clots, or wound infections.

Are mediastinal tumors cancerous?

Mediastinal tumors can be either cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). They can arise from any of the structures and can be either primary (originating in the mediastinum) or secondary (resulting from the spread of cancer from other parts of the body).
