Consultations for patients with oncological diseases before starting treatment
Patients with oncological diseases from Sofia and all over the country are consulted by the medical oncology specialists of Nadezhda Hospital to plan their treatment and discuss the need for further medical examinations.
At the consulting office subjects of discussion are also the opportunities for patients to be included in ongoing clinical trials at Nadezhda Hospital.
Drug treatment strategies and options – chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, as well as adverse drug reactions from anti-tumor treatment – are discussed in detail with patients and their relatives.
Consultations for patients during the ongoing treatment – second opinion
Our Medical oncology specialists also consult patients with all types of solid malignant tumors who have already started treatment but wish to receive a second opinion for diagnosis and treatment.
Oncological diseases and preserving the chance to have a child
All patients of reproductive age should be informed by their physician about fertility preservation options before starting treatment.
This is an official recommendation of the most authoritative medical oncology and reproductive medicine organizations in the world, such as ESMO, ASCO and ESHRE.
At Nadezhda, the medical oncologists work closely with the team of reproductive specialists, and eggs or sperm freezing prior to the start of therapy can be performed without the risk of delaying treatment.
The procedure is completely safe for patients and does not affect the prognosis of the underlying disease in any way.
If the patient is a woman with cancer up to the age of 34, she may benefit from government funding of the egg freezing procedure through the Assisted Reproductive Technology Fund.
If the patient is male, sperm sparing will be carried out at no cost to the patient.
