Here are some of the hospitals you can consider for your stage IV mouth cancer: Delhi: 1) All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) (Government Hospital) 2) Delhi State Cancer Institute (DSCI) (Government Hospital) 3) Dharamshila Narayana Superspeciality Hospital (Private Hospital) 4) BLK Super Speciality Hospital (Private Hospital) Mumbai: 1) Tata Memorial Hospital (Government Hospital) 2) Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC) (Government Hospital) 3) Jaslok Hospital (Private Hospital) 4) Saifee Hospital (Private Hospital) Hyderabad: 1) Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital and Research Institute (Charitable Hospital) 2) Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (Government Hospital) 3) American Oncology Institute (Private Hospital) 4) CARE Hospital (Private Hospital) Hope my answer helps you.

My brother in law is diagnosed liver cancer by the Doctors in Cuttack, Odisha. He is relatively poor with almost no resources to support the treatment. With my limited income of around Rs 8 lakhs per year, I need to support him. The Regional Research center named " Acharya Harihar Cancer Research center" at Cuttack seems having no modern technology to treat the same ( Please correct me, if I am wrong). Request you to guide me which hospital can be the best choice. I can spend maximum upto 3-4 laks from my savings. Thanks in advance for the help. he needs immediate treatment.

Hello Kashinath! I am not sure about Acharya Harihar Cancer Centre not having the latest technology because it is a regional cancer centre. On the other side, if what you say is true, it is better that you get your brother in law treated at Charitable or Government Hospitals if there is a cash crunch. 

 

Referring to an answer I have written below, the cost of a liver surgical resection would be approximately 3500 USD ( 250,000 INR ). Given the money you have saved up ( 300,000 - 400,000 INR or 4250 - 5650 USD), you can even opt for a private hospital if there is an urgency or preference to get treated in one. 

 

You should go to major metropolitan cities like Hyderabad or Chennai which would be the closest to you:

 

Private Cancer Hospitals:

  1. American Oncology Institute
  2. Apollo Health City
  3. Fortis Malar Hospital
  4. Apollo Hospital

Government/ Charitable Cancer Hospitals:

  1. Adyar Cancer Institute, Gandhi Nagar (Charitable)
  2. Royapettah Government Hospital, West Cott Road (Government)

Hi, The Stage 4 Lymphoma treatment can be done with respect to the type of Lymphoma the person has, medical history and the organs it has affected. The details you have given is limited, so, we can suggest the hospitals that you could take in consideration. 

 

Since you have not mentioned where you are from let me tell you some of the private and government hospitals in major metropolitan cities in India. It will be better if you consider the private hospitals because the patient is in stage 4 and requires urgent treatment. In case you consider economy wise, go for government hospitals. 

 

Mumbai 

 

Delhi

 

Hyderabad 

 

Bangalore 

Chennai 

 

Hope your brother have a speedy recovery and hope my information helps you.
