Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that responds well to treatment if detected early. PAP smears are a common initial diagnostic method. A number of treatments are available for cervical cancer, some less invasive than others. A cone biopsy, various types of hysterectomies, laser surgery, cryosurgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are among the various approaches available, and patients will want to consult with their physicians regarding the stage of their disease and the best set of treatments.
All of these treatments are available abroad at lower cost. Women can find quality care for less in a number of countries. Many hospitals in these countries cater specifically for patients who arrive from abroad for treatment and for cervical cancer patients in particular. This includes surgical aftercare and treatment of complications.
