Chemotherapy cost in India ranges from 650-1100 USD per cycle. The cost depends on chemotherapy drugs, stage of cancer and other factors. Chemotherapy treatment is an out-patient treatment and lasts for a half-hour to two hours. The oncologist will provide an estimate of time involved.
Usually, a standard of 6 cycles of chemotherapy are advised, but it may vary depending on the staging of the disease. In some cases, it may require two cycles of chemotherapy depending on the stage of cancer. There are a series of tests, including Blood Tests, X-rays, Physical Examination, HIV and Hepatitis tests and tests to check lungs, heart, liver and kidneys, scans such as PET Scan etc.
Diagnosis for Chemotherapy
- Chemotherapy can be used as the primary treatment for cancer. It kills cancer cells that may cause critical illness, breast cancer, blood cancer, lung cancer, etc.
- Adjuvant Therapy- Chemotherapy can be used after other treatments, such as surgery, to kill any cancer cells that might remain in the body.
- Neo-Adjuvant Therapy- Chemotherapy can be given before surgery or radiation to shrink a tumor so that other treatments are possible.
- For Palliation- to relieve symptoms of cancer by killing some of the cancer cells in incurable cases. Chemotherapy is often used to prepare for a bone marrow transplant.
- Immune System Disorders- Lower doses of chemotherapy drugs can help control an overactive immune system. Eg: in lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
