    Cancer treatment costs - Singapore and India

    My mother was diagnosed as having breast cancer stage 2.
    Two lumps in her breasts and one lump in the lymph node.

    Treatment suggested is removal of the lumps by surgery followed by about 6 weeks of radiation treatment.

    The cost in Singapore for this treatment is 40000 US$.

    We are considering whether we should get the treatment done in India - Chennai.

    - What would be costs for something similar in India?
    - What would be the quality of medical treatment in India?

    Unfortunately, I do not have the specific answer for you so what I am about to say is how you --might-- go about finding the information that you need. I would start by looking on the Internet just by doing a simple --search-- of breast cancer treatment in Chennai and the larger cities in Singapore. I did a search and was able to find much information rather quickly. You may have to then contact these centers to ask about specific costs. Rest assured, you could start a good search that would help you in your query.

    Another suggestion I would schedule a consultation with her doctor, hopefully an oncologist. We are lucky to all be connected with communication at our fingertips via the Internet. Doctors are on top of that list. They have sources for information about care in different countries. The most important thing for your mom is getting competent care no matter where she goes. You should be able to find excellent care in each country. and there are, well known, cancer centers. Breast cancer treatment can be extended, and extensive.

    Lastly, hopefully people reading this board will have the answers you need in finding treatment for your mom.

    Good luck to you and your mom.
