Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in almost every country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Indonesia, it is the third leading cause of death, just behind tuberculosis and stroke. This means that more people die from cancer than road injuries and crimes.
One of the reasons why so many die from cancer is that most of time, the symptoms only appear when the cancer has reached its late stages. By then, it is difficult to remove the cancer, and be cured permanently. If the cancer is detected while it is still in its early stages, the chances of removing it greatly increases.
The only way you’ll be able to know if you have cancer is to undergo cancer screening. Unfortunately, due to the size of the country and the fact that it is made up of over 17,000 islands, cancer-screening centers are very limited.
If you are seriously considering cancer screening, you have the option to travel to other Southeast Asian nations that offer better quality care. Fortunately, the cost of travel within the region has become cheaper with the availability of budget airlines.
Cancer screening in countries like Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia is widely available for both local and international patients. You can look forward to world-class health care facilities, the most advanced medical equipment, and a long list of qualified cancer specialists.
Don’t take the risk of discovering that you have cancer when it’s too late. Consider undergoing cancer screening in other Southeast Asian countries now.
