Hello Issac, you have posed a very important question about what will be services to help a patient who is not native to India. 

 

There are two types of hospitals: 

  • Government Hospitals: They will provide free/ affordable treatment but WILL NOT provided you with any other services which you are expecting. 
  • Private Hospitals: They will provide good quality treatment which would cost a bit. These hospitals cater to the needs of International patients and WILL provide the following services:
    • Medical Visa Assistance 
    • Airport Pick Up/Drop 
    • Accommodation 
    • Currency Exchange 
    • SIM Card 
    • Language Translators 

Some of the best private hospitals that provide these services are as follows: 

There is 19 months old girl from Ethiopia. Diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma. Completed 5 cycles of chemo. Referred abroad for surgical resection and possible liver transplant. We are planning to take her to India. Where is the best surgical oncology center in India? How much it will cost us? What is your advice? Thank you!

If you have a donor (family member) then only you can only proceed with liver transplant. The cost of liver transplant in India would be approximately 35,000 USD (2,500,000 INR) and the cost of Surgical Resection can be approximately 3,500 USD (250,000 INR). 

 

If Liver Transplant is an option then you should visit:

As per my understanding pancreatic and liver cancer at stage 3 level has poor prognosis. This patient will need multidisciplinary approach.Pallative care with counseling is of utmost importance. Please consult an oncologist for help. Immunotherapy, targeted drug therapy is also considered nowadays. But it all depends on patient’s general condition. Please consult an oncologist.

Secondary liver cancer means that the cancers has metastasized in liver from primary site elsewhere in body. Regular medication and follow up with doctor is important. It is IV grade cancer with bad prognosis. Consult an oncologist who will evaluate the patient and advice accordingly. Hope our answer helps you.

As per my understanding the patient is suffering from pancreatic cancer and now it has metastasized to liver and you want to know about the treatment. It seems the patient id suffering from stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Any cancer stage 4 does not have a good prognosis.

 

Treatment of cancer to a great extent depends on type of cancer, stage of Cancer, location of the cancer, general condition of patient, associated comorbidities and weighing benefits over risk. So considering these factors doctor will advise the treatment. Consult an oncologist. Hope our answer helps you.
