Cancer Treatment Abroad Offers Hope and Options

Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery are the most common types of treatments that battle multiple forms of cancer. Treatments vary according to the stage the cancer is discovered, as well as location and overall health of the patient. Cancer staging is typically defined as Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 and Stage 4, ranging from early and localized to those that have spread throughout the body.

Standard and traditional cancer treatments in the past have included chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and biological or hormone therapy. Today, other options are available to work in conjunction with traditional cancer drug and treatment approaches.

Stem cell treatments and therapies may help treat various types of cancer and today are often combined with chemotherapy or radiation treatments to promote faster healing and less side effects caused by the cancer drugs. Stem cell therapies offer a multitude of benefits including but not limited to enabling cells to migrate directly to the site of injury or damage for repair or replication. Stem cells come from different sources. The most commonly studied, and used, stem cell therapies involve:

  • Embryonic stem cell therapy
  • Adult stem cell therapy and research
  • Umbilical cord stem cell therapy

Cancer treatment in the U.S. is expensive. Chemotherapy treatments range about $500 a month.  Medications to treat cancer may run $2,000 to $3,000 dollars a month, depending on the drug, while locations such as India and Thailand offer up to 50% savings.
