Seringül KARAKAYA, a 54-year-old patient who underwent surgery for ameloblastoma (a bone tumor) in her jaw in 2004, continued to live a healthy life through regular follow-ups for 19 years. In March 2023, she noticed swelling on the right side of her face and sought assistance from the KTU FarabiHospital Ear, Nose, and Throat Clinic. Following various examinations, it was determined that the tumor had affected her cheekbone this time. After completing the necessary tests and imaging, the patient's condition was evaluated by Assoc. Prof. Bengü ÇOBANOĞLU. It was found that the tumor had not spread to other parts of her body, and the patient underwent surgery to remove both the tumor and her cheekbone. After the wound healed, the patient regained her health.
Assoc. Prof. Bengü ÇOBANOĞLU, who led the surgical team, stated the following about Seringül KARAKAYA's treatment process: "We identified the tumor affecting her cheekbone and promptly removed the tumor through surgery. The post-operative wound healing was successfully completed. I am happy to got involved in Seringül's treatment. It brings me great satisfaction to see her recover her health."
Assoc. Prof. Bengü ÇOBANOĞLU, who also raised awareness about head and neck tumors, added, "Tumors occurring in the head and neck region can lead to serious health problems. Therefore, individuals who experience symptoms such as non-healing wounds, swelling in the neck, hoarseness, and oral ulcers should consult ENT specialists without delay. Early diagnosis increases the chances of successful treatment. Additionally, regular check-ups and healthy lifestyle habits are of great importance in preventing head and neck tumors. Do not neglect your health and do not hesitate to seek support from experts in case of any doubt. I recommend undergoing regular check-ups and taking your symptoms seriously for a healthy life."
Patient Seringül KARAKAYA expressed her satisfaction with the treatment process, stating, "I am extremely satisfied with the treatment I received at the KTU Farabi Hospital's Ear, Nose, and Throat Clinic. Assoc. Prof. Bengü ÇOBANOĞLU and her team were very supportive during the every step of the way, providing information and maintaining close communication. The nurses and other healthcare personnel met my needs with their friendly attitudes and provided support at all times. They helped me maintain high morale throughout my treatment. Thanks to the treatment I received at the KTU Farabi Hospital's Ear, Nose, and Throat Clinic, I regained my health, and I am very happy about it. I am grateful to the entire healthcare team and wish them continued success."[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="5404,5405,5406,5407,5408,5409"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
