My name is Sergey, I am undergoing treatment at the oncology department of the Nordwest Clinic in Frankfurt am Main. I would like to note the high professional level of doctors, the technical equipment of the clinic at the proper level. I want to express special gratitude to Professor Elka Yeager, senior doctor Kiselichki, Dr. Weber, the highest level of professionalism, are very friendly and attentive, the junior staff are smart, everything is super, I’m very pleased with the treatment, if not for one “but” ... Because of ignorance language had to contact the company "Phoenix Service", which is an intermediary for the provision of medical services, led by Radislav. My communication with them began with the fact that before arrival they demanded a significant prepayment, which was timely transferred to their account. After arriving at the clinic, I had to transfer money several times, rather big money. I persistently asked the company’s employees to conclude an agreement with me on the provision of services by Phoenix Service, in order to specifically understand which services and for what specific payment the services will be provided. However, no contracts, as well as invoices with prices, were provided to me, which directly testifies to dishonesty. Only two months later I received the clinic’s bills (with which I completely agree) and separately a bill from Phoenix Service for the services rendered, after viewing which there were simply no words ... As it turned out, being treated in Germany was not expensive, it was expensive to pay for the services of Phoenix invoiced, which either didn’t turn out at all, or turned out to be in the wrong amount and at very high prices. I tried to talk with the head of the company Radislav, saying that I did not agree with the bill, to which I received the answer "if something does not suit you, you can refuse our services further." I officially wrote an appeal to the clinic about the detachment from this dishonest company, to which I received a positive response. He also wrote an official letter to Phoenix with a request to review the account, to which he still has not received an answer. I want to warn everyone who is in my position, those cancer patients who sell everything in order to pay for treatment and live on, but these “phoenixes” don’t stop at anything to enrich themselves at their expense.

Doctor with a capital letter After a long rush about doctors, I finally found Professor Schels - not just a world specialist, but also a sympathetic person who attentively and thoughtfully listened to my whole story, looked at the extracts and appointed additional examinations. All diagnostics took place extremely quickly and clearly. The prescribed treatment of Professor Scheels is working, this is the most important thing. Special thanks to the accompanying Vladimir for the clear translation and help in resolving all issues.

We are discharging from the hospital, we will keep in touch with this doctor. The procedures go terribly, there is no specific treatment prescribed yet, there is no diagnosis. Besides the fact that my daughter eats, has lunch, has dinner as in a usual sanatorium, they just rip off 600-700 euros per night - a lot of money when you don’t see the result, why stay, just overnight to pay money. I am not happy with the visit.

FAQ about Melanoma Treatment in Germany

What is melanoma?

Melanoma is a malignant disease that develops from melanocytes (pigment cells) and can occur in every part of the body. Particular danger of melanoma consists in quick metastasizing.

Melanoma development process is still unclear but specialists underline such risk factors as inherited predisposition, UV radiation and nevus injury.

Types of melanoma

Oncologists classify melanoma according to the level of its invasion (Clark’s scale), thickness (Breslow’s scale), appearance and development scheme.

According to cell types melanoma is divided into:

  • superficial melanoma;
  • nodular melanoma;
  • lentigo melanoma;
  • acral lentiginous melanoma;
  • spindle cell melanoma.

Symptoms of melanoma

Early stages of melanoma are often asymptomatic. A patient can notice development of a new nevus or change of existing nevus (redness, increase). Later stages comprise weight loss, weakness, increase of lymph nodes, etc.


Complex diagnostics of melanoma includes investigation of the patient’s past medical history, examination of suspicious nevus with dermatoscope and of adjusting lymph nodes. Cancer-specific markers blood test and biopsy can be provided for specification of malignant nature of the disease. If a patient refers to a doctor at later stages comprising metastases, CT, PET-CT or MRI are provided to determine the scope and location of metastases.

Treatment of melanoma at each stage

Medical specialists develop individual program for each case considering general health condition of a patient and specifics of the disease.

Stage 0 involves surgical removal of a tumor. If surgery cannot be performed, topical therapy is applied.

Stage 1 melanoma treatment includes surgical excision of affected nevus with surrounding skin tissues.

For stage 2 melanoma treatment doctors provide expanded tumor excision with biopsy of signal lymph node. Some patients receive interferon alpha as adjuvant drug.

Stage 3 melanoma treatment comprises removal of both tumor and signal lymph node and tumor masses combined with chemo-, beam or combined therapy.

For stage 4 melanoma treatment doctors apply immune, targeted and chemotherapy. Metastases are removed surgically or by using radiotherapy or medication.

Melanoma treatment cost

Melanoma treatment cost depends on many factors:

  • melanoma type;
  • size of tumor;
  • metastases in organism;
  • necessary diagnostic procedures;
  • treatment method;
  • price policy of the hospital in the particular country.

Each melanoma patient receives individual diagnostic and treatment program comprising all these factors.
