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!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Skin Cancer Treatment

Skin cancer can be easily detected by the patients, if they pay attention to their skin, especially the parts that are exposed to the sun. The patients who sunbath extensively are at high risk of having skin cancer. However, it is known that sunbathing in later hours (after 3 pm) or using sun cream, minimalizes the risk of skin cancer. Abnormal skin change is one of the most common symptoms of skin cancer. Skin cancer can be diagnosed by medical examination and biopsy.

Not Recommended For Skin Cancer Treatment

Many patients are suitable for skin cancer treatment. However, some of the patients may not be suitable because of other medical problems they have, such as other kinds of cancer.

Overview

Skin cancer treatment is a type of cancer that is relatively easier to treat and less invasive than other cancer types such as lung cancer or pancreatic cancer. However, just like in any other type of cancer, it is important to detect cancer before it progresses into an advanced stage.
There are lots of different kinds of skin cancer. Apart from the location where cancer develops, the feature they share is the cause of skin cancer, which is generally an overt exposure to the sun. Skin cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer, affecting hundreds of thousands of patients every year. Fortunately, most skin cancers can be easily treated. There are two main types of skin cancer:
• Non-melanoma skin cancers – these cases are relatively more easily treated that include basal cell cancer, squamous skin cancer. These skin cancers are usually concentrated on the outside layers of skin and do not reach deeper, at least not in the first stages.
• Melanoma skin cancers – these kinds of skin cancer are more malign because of their possibility to grow inwards, easily affecting the patient’s other organs.

Preparation

There is no exact skin cancer treatment preparation required. However, the patients should inform their doctors about other medical conditions they have and the medications they are taking. This way, appropriate treatment for skin cancer can be prepared for the patient.

How It Is Performed

There are several treatment alternatives available, depending on the type of skin cancer and its stage. These include:
• Skin cancer surgery – the surgeons, might attempt to remove cancer tissue, specifically in the early stages of skin cancer.
• Electrosurgery – In this procedure with the use of heat, cancer cells are burned, and bleeding is prevented
• Cryosurgery – Likewise, by using extreme heat, skin cancer cells are destroyed without harming other body cells
• Laser surgery – it provides similar results to cryosurgery and electrosurgery using a special type of laser
• Chemotherapy treatment for skin cancer – chemotherapy can be used as a supportive skin cancer treatment, or it can be beneficial in prolonging the patient’s life when cancer has already spread to other organs. During chemotherapy, strong drugs are used to fight cancer cells.
• Radiation therapy – in this treatment technique, radiation is used to fight skin cancer cells. Radiation therapy has two kinds: external radiation therapy (radiation created by a machine) or internal radiation therapy (radioactive elements are injected or swallowed and reach the site of skin cancer)

Recovery

The recovery period of skin cancer treatment depends mostly on the combination of methods used to eliminate specific skin cancer. The recovery period of skin cancer operation might be fast while chemotherapy and radiation therapy have a longer recovery period because of its side effects.

Risks

Skin cancer treatment techniques such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy might cause some complications, such as:
• Damage to lungs
• Problems with other organs such as kidneys
• Neurological problems
Also, skin cancer surgery might lead to complications such as bleeding and difficulties with closing the wound.

Side Effects

Even though chemotherapy and radiation therapy are very effective treatment techniques, they might cause some side effects that may last for weeks, months, or even years involving:
• Nausea, vomiting
• Difficulties with concentration and memory 
• Overall state of weakness and tiredness

Success Rates

Older patients who are diagnosed with skin cancer mostly have less chance to survive than younger patients. The survival rate of stage one skin cancer is over %90.

Faq

What Are the Signs of Skin Cancer?
The most common symptoms of skin cancer involve skin changes such as atypical moles, red, brown, or even blackish spots, that grow in time.

How Can I Avoid Skin Cancer?
There are no totally effective methods but avoiding extensive sunbathing, especially in the high sun, is advised by doctors. Also, it is very important to use a sunscreen that is suitable for your skin.
What is the difference between
Melanoma and Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer?
Melanomas are more malignant skin cancers, easily reaching under the skin and spreading throughout the body. It is easier to treat non-melanomas since they do not become malignant so often and quickly.
