If you’ve been diagnosed with Kidney Cancer and advised to undergo treatment or nephrectomy, which is a standard treatment that involves partial or complete removal of the kidney, one of your options is to seek treatment in Southeast Asia.
Over the past decade, medical travel to Southeast Asia has significantly increased due to several reasons. Among these are cheaper costs of a medical procedure, shorter waiting times, and high quality of medical care.
When seeking treatment, you can expect that a cancer team comprised of doctors, surgeons, and oncologists will be assigned to your case. A treatment plan will then be formulized depending on your physical condition, age, and the stage of your Kidney Cancer. If you are physically fit for surgery, the doctors will decide on whether to perform a partial nephrectomy, which involves removing part of the kidney with cancer, or radical nephrectomy to remove the whole kidney.
If you’re not physically fit, you will need to undergo other treatment options such as targeted therapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy, until such time you are well enough to undergo surgery.
The treatment plan will be explained to you in detail so that you’re fully aware of what to expect, including your chances of recovering from the cancer.
After the surgery, you’ll need time to recuperate and doing so at one of Southeast Asia’s top hospitals can be a pleasant surprise. You’ll find that the facilities are at par with western hospitals and the friendly medical teams will facilitate your recovery.
