In most cases, malignant tumors have to be removed through tumor excision or surgery in combination with chemical and radiation therapy. In this procedure, the cancerous tissue is removed while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. Tumour excision is a costly procedure, the price of which depends on the location of the tumour. In any case, the surgery costs several thousands of dollars.
Patients who would like to have their tumor removed or excised but would not like to spend a fortune can consider having the procedure done in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Singapore, and South Korea. These countries take pride in their modern hospital facilities and their board-certified surgeons who are well-trained both locally and abroad. Unlike Western countries where patients may need to wait months for a procedure to be done, tumour operation in Southeast Asia can be performed at a moment’s notice – thanks to the country’s high doctor-to-patient ratio. You can also consider having comprehensive cancer treatment along with the surgery and expect to pay at least 70% less of what you would pay in the US or Europe, yet still have equally excellent results. Medical staff and other hospital personnel are also well-versed in English, and can provide interpreters so communication will never be a problem when you seek medical procedures.
