Focusing on Cancer: Cancer Treatments Abroad

New therapies and drugs under study for cancers ranging from breast, lung, prostate and brain are currently undergoing clinical trials throughout the world. Cancer research and potential therapies have been aimed at identifying the cause of the abnormal or mutant cell growth which results in cancerous growth, and how to kill such cancer growth without severely damaging other tissues and organs in the body, reducing side effects.


Cancer research is also studying the effect that rare cancer stem cells have on cancer growth, and results of such research have been published in the International Journal of Cancer as well as Clinical Cancer Research journals. Two new drugs under testing include imetelstat, commonly known as GRN163L, which blocks a certain enzymes, and are currently being tested for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, lung and breast cancer. The often devastating side effects of cancer treatments are the main topic of discussion of many researchers and scientists around the globe.


The cost of treating cancer for individual patients is astronomical, and a fortunately, many patients declined medication, drugs are treatments because they can’t afford them, even with health insurance. However, cancer treatment abroad offers some of the best cancer treatment hospitals in Mexico, or some of the best cancer specialists in Turkey. Affordable cancer treatment in India, as well as Jordan, Spain, Germany and the Ukraine are becoming viable options for not only Americans but also natives from other countries seeking high quality yet affordable cancer care.
