Cost of Mouth Cancer Treatment

The cost of Mouth Cancer Treatment in India ranges from USD 3000-5000 at the best of the hospitals. The first step is to correctly diagnose the stage of mouth cancer. This is done by doing MRI or 3D CT Scan of the Mouth so that the depth and spread of the tumour can be assessed. Then a whole body PET CT is done to see whether the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. The cost of these investigations would be approximately USD 500-700. Once we know the stage of the cancer then the treatment is planned. If surgical excision of the tumour is to be done then the cost of the surgery would be around USD 3000 - 4500. Frozen section biopsy is done during the surgery to make sure that the entire cancer is removed and the margins are clear.

The hospital stay for mouth cancer surgery would be 5-7 days and post discharge stay in India would be about 2 weeks. So you should ideally plan a trip for about 3-4 weeks to India for getting the complete treatment. You can send your reports by email or whatsapp to get an estimate about the cost of the treatment before arriving in India.

Apart from the treatment the other costs like travelling, hotels and food are all cheaper in India. The boarding and lodging cost for the patient and one attendant in a decent airconditioned guest house would be around USD 40-60 per day. Those who have to stay for long periods can even rent an apartment for around 300-400 USD per month. The stay in cancer cases is longer where the patient needs multi modality treatment.
