Cancer is a major social and health problem in all developed countries. In Italy, more than 377,000 people are diagnosed with malignant cancer every year (about 195,000 men and about 182,000 women, AIRC data 2021).

Paideia International Hospital, which has always been committed to offering the most advanced diagnostic and treatment solutions in the field of oncology, and this alarming health situation has driven the hospital’s decision to ensure operational integration between all the facilities dedicated to cancer treatment.

What the Paideia oncology unit offers

Paideia International Hospital offers a customised pathway from early diagnosis to surgical (conventional, laparoscopic, robotic), medical or radiotherapy treatment (through specific collaborations perfected through many years of shared commitment), as well as new local and regional treatments such as electrochemotherapy or electroporation in addition to post-acute rehabilitation services, psychological support, pain therapy, clinical nutrition, home care and as far as full functional recovery.

Oncology: diagnostic tests

Specialist oncological examinations

Paideia International Hospital’s specialist oncological unit offers services of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancers.


Personalised oncology

Paideia International Hospital is always committed to using advanced diagnostic and therapeutic tools to offer a personalised (and not just targeted) approach to cancer patients.

We use reliable and innovative systems to identify possible therapeutic targets for biological drugs or immunotherapy, allowing for alternative treatments to conventional chemotherapy, which however remains a powerful weapon and an inevitable sacrifice for some patients.

In addition to the typical alterations of tumour cells used to identify the precision therapy, the genes involved in drug metabolism have characteristics unique to the individual, which if understood, can help to define more accurately their personal level of risk with regard to the toxicities of certain widely-used drugs.

We offer genomic diagnostic services for women who have undergone breast cancer surgery, enabling a significant number of patients to avoid toxic chemotherapy treatments, which in many cases are useless.

A further example of the attention paid to patients’ real needs is the recent introduction to clinical practice of therapeutic reconciliation tools, which can help the physician to coordinate different treatments, selecting drugs with the smallest negative effects possible and which best match the individual metabolic profile.


Personalised assessment of cancer patients obviously also involves nutrition, a valuable ally in many phases of the disease and too often neglected with serious clinical consequences including reduced effectiveness of treatments and greater toxicity.

The analysis and targeted correction of the microbiota, i.e. the billions and billions of microorganisms that live inside of us, is a further aspect of how the personalisation of treatments is addressed in the oncology pathway available at Paideia International Hospital.

The focus on the prevention and treatment of cancer-related symptoms also covers the prevention and treatment of lymphoedema secondary  to neoplastic diseases, with the aim of offering concrete and highly-qualified responses for the many patients in need of specific interventions.


Physical activity, carried out in a controlled manner by experienced staff, is a therapeutic tool of great benefit at many stages of the cancer patient’s journey, for which we provide large spaces within the facility.

Simultaneous care, i.e. integrated disease control and treatment of symptoms, is one of the most important goals of oncology. This is why supportive therapy and oncological rehabilitation have become increasingly important in the clinical setting, as a fundamental part of the services offered to patients.  Supportive therapy, understood as the treatment of symptoms of the disease and/or of the treatments received, should not be considered as a specific period of care for the patient in the final stage of their disease, but should be an integral part of treatment throughout the different stages of the disease. All of these interventions are part of a rehabilitation approach; the objectives include the restoration of a better quality of life, self-esteem, self-control, psychological and spiritual balance, and the recovery of impaired motor functions.

 Nursing and medical staff are included in home care programmes for patients at a more advanced stage of the disease, with the same care and attention that the facility devotes to prevention and the early stages of cancer.

At Paideia International Hospital, we offer truly customised cancer therapy, providing patients not only with treatment, but also an innovative diagnostic and therapeutic pathway.
