Lung Cancer Treatment in India

Lung cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in the world, and in India its treatment is sophisticated. Medical care in the country is supervised by eminent doctors, making healing much more common than in some of the most advanced nations in the world. Due to cost and knowledge-related advantages, India is now a hub of health tourist for seeking lung cancer treatment.

What is Lung Cancer?

Lung cancer, also called lung carcinoma, is a form of malignant lung tumor that grows fast due to uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. This abnormal cell growth can spread by a process of metastasis and affect nearby tissues or some other parts of the human body. Cancers that originate in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are actually a form of carcinoma. The two main types of lung cancers are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). There is one more type that has been considered as a new type of lung cancer, known as Lung Carcinoid Tumor.

Lung Cancer-related Health Tourism in India

Indian lung cancer treatments are known to increase five-year survival rates for all stages of lung cancer, which is a leading cause of cancer deaths in the world. Apart from free screenings of tumors for genetic mutations, Indian hospitals provide a range of radiation therapy options to treat lung cancer. There are state-of-the-art cancer hospitals in India and availability of highly-skilled, compassionate doctors and other clinicians make the treatment go through in a personally enjoyable atmosphere. The costs are very low too, for example, chemotherapy in India costs one seventh of what it does in the USA.

Lung Cancer Care in India

India is an advanced nation in terms of technologies for lung cancer treatment. Cancer treatment can have numerous routines, including medical diagnosis, hospitalized care and/or surgery. There are several methods and there are side effects of the treatment strategies. It is clear that each lung cancer patient is different, and the treatment is therefore personalized according to individual needs by specialists. When traveling to India for the treatment, a patient can expect a focused approach where the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual elements can be holistically interlinked to solve the disease from spreading and then diminished in terms of effects and symptoms. Small Cell Lung Cancer is often treated with chemotherapy. Surgery is opted when there is no sign that the cancer has spread to the lymph glands in the center of the chest. Non Small Cell Lung Cancer requires surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or a mix of all these.
