In advanced cases, Pneumonectomy is done, which means the removal of entire lungs. Surgery is followed by -

Frequently asked questions related to expenses that most patients have when planing for Lung Cancer Treatment.

What is the cost of tests for lung cancer Treatment?

To start with the process, a chest x-ray is the first test that will be done to check any abnormal areas in the lungs. After that, A CT scan is done to reveal any small lesions in lungs that may not have been detected on an X-ray. Generally, a sputum cytology is also done if you are producing sputum due to cough to check the presence of lung cancer cells. The package typically doesn’t include the cost of these tests.

Is the medicine cost included in the lung cancer treatment package?

The chemotherapy drugs taken post liver transplant are not a part of the package and cost extra. The most common ones include bevacizumab in combination with chemotherapy and atezolizumab, which is an immunotherapy drug. In the case of targeted therapy and immunotherapy related medicines, the are not a part of the package.

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

You need to take the medicines prescribed by your doctor in case you experience pain. The medicines are not covered in the package. You may also be at a higher risk for getting another lung cancer or any other types of cancer. To avoid this, it is recommended to go for post-treatment management to check an early detection of any recurrences that might be cured at an early stage, this is also not a part of the procedure cost.
