Cost of Meningioma Treatment in Thailand: Detailed Overview

Meningioma Treatment cost in Thailand is between USD 12150 to USD 14850. Patient has to stay in the hospital for 4 days and outside the hospital for 8 days. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.

Meningioma is a non-cancerous tumour of the brain and spinal cord membrane.

There is a three-layer covering beneath the skull on the brain and spinal cord. When a tumour grows in these layers, it is called Meningioma.

It is primarily benign and shows signs and symptoms according to its size.

If the tumour is small and slow-growing, it might not need any intervention.

The sign and symptoms include -

  • Headaches
  • Changes in vision,
  • Dizziness
  • Hearing loss
  • Seizures

Many approaches are available for treating Meningioma based on the size and location of the tumour; a wait-and-watch approach is needed when the tumour is small in size and slow-growing.

If the tumour is giant and causing a lot of discomfort, then surgery, either craniotomy or microsurgery, is done to remove the tumour and cancer cells.

If some part of the cancer is left post-surgery, Radiation Therapy is needed by either SRS (Stereotactic Radiosurgery) or Fractional Radiosurgery.

Chemotherapy is rarely used in such cases; however, if the tumour is not responding to any other treatment, then chemotherapy is done.
