What is the cost of tests for breast cancer treatment?

There are several tests done to start with the procedure of breast cancer treatment including Breast ultrasound, Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Biopsy, and Diagnostic mammogram. If breast cancer is diagnosed, staging tests are done to find out if cancer cells have spread within the breast or to other parts of the body as well. The package typically doesn’t include the cost of these tests.

Is the medicine cost included in the package?

Breast cancer treatment depends on the stage of cancer and may consist of chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy, and surgery. All medicines in the time frame that the patient is at the hospital for any of the procedures mentioned previously are covered in the package. Medicines taken for recovery are usually not covered in the package price.

Is there any post-treatment expense after getting breast cancer treatment?

Tamoxifen (Nolvadex, Soltamox) is a pill prescribed for decades to treat breast cancer. If a woman has a hormone receptor-positive breast cancer, it is suggested to go for hormone therapy as an after-surgery treatment plan. If there is less pain post-surgery, an over-the-counter pain reliever such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen will ease discomfort. The procedures and medicines are not covered in the package.
