Prostate Cancer Surgery Cost In Malaysia

Whatsapp Chat Chat

Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that occurs in prostate gland cells, which is found only in males.
It is recommended in patients where cancer is not metastasized.

The most common procedure is a Radical Prostatectomy. It can be performed as open or robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery.

In Laparoscopic Prostatectomy, the surgeon makes several small incisions instead of one big incision and uses a particular long surgical instrument to remove the prostate, whereas, in open surgery, the surgeon makes incisions in the lower abdomen.

If there is a reasonable chance cancer might have spread to nearby lymph nodes, the surgeon may also remove some of these lymph nodes at this time.

The nodes are sent to the lab to see if they have cancer cells. If cancer cells are found in any nodes, the surgeon might not continue the surgery. This is because it's doubtful that cancer can be cured with surgery, and removing the prostate could lead to serious side effects.

Prostate Cancer Surgery cost in Malaysia is between USD 9000 to USD 11000. Patient has to stay in the hospital for 3 days and outside the hospital for 15 days. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.
