We often hear of women being stricken with breast cancer. But this condition is not entirely exclusive to females. Carcinoma of the breast or breast cancer can also occur in men, where malignant tumours develop in the breast tissue. These cancer cells can multiply and even spread to other parts of the body.
As in any type of cancer, men diagnosed with this condition require access to the best medical care possible for the treatment of their condition. They have the option of travelling to another region in the world to achieve this purpose. This option is especially useful for patients in countries where advanced oncology treatment is not widely available or is extremely expensive, as in the case in most Western countries where patients spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for their treatment.
Several internationally accredited hospitals in Southeast Asia have world-class oncology centres that provide affordable specialist cancer treatment to both local and international patients. These facilities are fully equipped with advanced medical devices and technologies to provide multi-modal cancer treatments including oncological surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. They are also staffed by highly experienced teams of cancer specialists composed of surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists, with most boasting several decades of experience, impressive track record, and international accreditations and certifications. In addition, many healthcare providers in the region offer end-to-end services to medical tourists to make the whole process hassle-free for them. These services usually involve complementary airport pick-up and drop-off, assistance in booking hotel accommodation for patients and their families, assistance in setting appointments with doctors, and transportation services to and from the hotel and hospital.
