Frequently Asked Questions Related to Skin Cancer Treatment Cost

The package includes the cost of the tests that need to be done before a skin cancer treatment. Your doctor will examine your skin and remove a sample of suspicious skin for lab testing. A biopsy is done to evaluate whether you have skin cancer. Additional tests might include MRI, CT scans, and X-rays.

Medicines that are consumed in the hospital are included in the package. While the medicines bought from outside the hospital after the patient gets discharged are not part of the package.

You will be under local anesthetic for small skin cancers and might go home on the same day. For large skin cancers, you will need a general anesthetic and stay in the hospital overnight. If you have non-melanoma skin cancer, your follow-up visits are usually scheduled every 6-12 months. Follow-up is done more often for the first two years if you were treated for high-risk non-melanoma skin cancer. 

You may have stitches until your wound heals after the skin incision, and you might take painkillers if you experience any pain. Most wound takes 1-3 weeks to heal. If you have more advanced skin cancer, it may never go away completely. You may get regular treatment with radiation therapy and chemotherapy, which are not covered in the package.

Luckily, many health insurance plans cover skin cancer treatment. Many insurance plans cover hospitalization but not out-patient department consultation costs and daycare procedures. Some cover out-patient consultation, daycare services along with hospitalization. It is better to read the terms and conditions of the policy to understand the coverage details. 

Non-surgical procedures such as radiation therapy and topical medications are cheaper than surgery. It is best to consult your doctor to get the best treatment plan.
