Bone Marrow Transplant in India for Africans

Posted by: Emily on May 17th, 2014 no responses.

Bone Marrow Transplant in India for Africans With only two bone marrow registries in Africa—one in Nigeria and the other in South Africa—and only three African countries   having the requisite technology for harvesting and transplanting bone marrow, traveling to India, which has state-of-the-art hospitals and competent doctors, for a bone transplant becomes a good choice.

 

Overview of Bone Marrow Transplant

  • Bone marrow transplant offers hope to people suffering from blood cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma, and even benign disorders, such as Aplastic Anemia and Thalassaemia.
  • Bone marrow is a sponge-like tissue found inside the empty regions of the bones.
  • It consists of stem cells that produce blood cells, which further make up the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
  • Any damage to the bone marrow which inhibits its ability to produce normal blood cells may warrant a transplant.
  • A transplant may also be required in cases in which bone marrow has been destroyed after chemotherapy and/or radiation.
  • Two of the procedures commonly used are Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) and Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant (PBSCT).
  • There are three kinds of BMT:
    • Autologous transplant, in which stem cells are removed from your body before your chemo or radiation therapy, and are cryopreserved for later use.
    • Allogeneic BMT, in which stem cells are removed from your perfect genetic match (usually your brother or sister).  Your parents, children, or relatives may also be a good match. You can look for unrelated donors in the bone marrow registries.
    • Umbilical cord blood transplant, which involves removal of stem cells from the baby’s umbilical cord right after her birth. These are then frozen and stored for future use. As umbilical cord blood cells are not very mature, these do not have a great need for matching.

 

Collection of Donor Stem Cells

There are two ways of collecting donor stem cells:

  • Bone Marrow Harvest: This involves removal of bone marrow from the rear portion of the hip bones. The quantity of bone marrow that needs to be harvested depends on the recipient’s body weight.
  • Leukapheresis: This procedure lasts for about 5 days, in which shots are given to the donor to make the stem cells in the bone marrow travel from the hollows of the bones to the blood stream. Blood is then removed through an IV line. A machine removes the white blood cells, which contain the stem cells, for later use.

Prostate Cancer Treatment Options

Prostate cancer is a result of out-of-control multiplication of prostate cells which then form a mass or a tumor. Prostate is a small gland resembling a walnut that produces seminal fluid, which provides nourishment to the sperm and helps transport it. The following are the treatment options for prostate cancer:

  • Radiation Therapy – Killing the prostate cancer cells with high-power energy. X-rays or protons are used to target the cancer cells.
  • Brachytherapy – It is a form of internal radiation in which tiny radioactive seeds almost the size of a rice grain are placed into the prostate tissue. These radioactive seeds will keep releasing small doses of radiation over a period of time.
  • Hormone Therapy – This involves cutting off hormonal supply (usually testosterone) to the cancer cells which may slow down their growth or result in their death. Hormone therapy may involve medications that completely stop the production of testosterone or block its supply to the cancer cells. The testicles may also be removed surgically in a process known as orchiectomy to reduce the production of testosterone.
  • Robotic Radical Prostatectomy – It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removal of the prostate along with the surrounding tissue and some of the lymph nodes. Learn more on robotic radical prostatectomy in India here.
  • Cryosurgery – This involves freezing the prostate tissues to kill the cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy – This procedure involves killing the rapidly growing cells (including cancer cells) with the aid of drugs. It is usually used for treating prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. It is also resorted to when the cancer doesn’t respond to hormonal treatment.

 

Useful Info and Tips for Medical Tourists

  • Africans planning to travel on a medical visa to the country will have to provide their latest financial statements along with referral letters issued by the hospital where their prostate cancer treatment will be facilitated.
  • A referral letter from a local doctor or hospital also needs to be furnished when applying for a medical visa.
  • The average flight duration between the major African cities and New Delhi is as follows:

 

Origin

 

Flight Duration

Tests to be Performed

 

  • Physical Exam and Medical History: Full body examination to check for lumps or any other signs of the disease is conducted. A medical history is also taken to assess patient’s health habits and past illnesses.
  • Neurological exam: The doctor will ask some questions to assess the functioning of a patient’s brain, spinal cord, and nerve function. This exam will give the doctor an idea about the co-ordination of patient’s different systems, his ability to walk, the functioning of his muscles and senses.
  • PET scan (positron emission tomography scan): This will help find the presence and position of malignant tumor cells in the body.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): Performed with magnet, radio waves, and a computer to study the inside of the brain and spinal cord in detail.
  • Lumbar puncture: To collect cerebrospinal fluid around the brain and spinal cord and check for protein level and signs of cancer in it.

 

 

Depending upon your case, the doctor may also advise a CT scan, angiogram, a biopsy, etc.

 

African patients who already have reports of any or all of the above tests are advised can mail them to us in advance so we can ask for the doctor’s opinion.

 

Treatment Options

 

The treatment varies from person to person. Generally the treatment options for brain and spinal cord tumors are:  Hospital for Cancer Treatments in India

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiotherapy

A team of doctors specialized in Brain and Spinal Cord treatments as well as cancer treatments— neurologist, oncologist, pathologist, neuro-oncologist, neuroradiologist, neurosurgeon, radiation oncologist— will perform the treatment after thoroughly studying your reports.

 

The surgeries are performed at one of India’s top hospitals that is accredited by the JCI and the NABH.

 

What are the chances of recovery?

 

Again, each case is different and the chances of any person’s recovery depend upon several factors:

  • The tumor/cancer type
  • Tumor size and location
  • Disease stage at the time of diagnosis
  • Patient’s age
  • Patient’s general health

Besides, the way a body responds to any treatment is different for different individuals, so an absolutely defined prognosis is not made in cancer cases.

 

The diagnosis of a cancer is traumatic enough, and no one wants to deal with the trouble of arranging finances for an exorbitantly priced medical treatment. Africans can find affordable brain and spinal cord cancer treatment in India and get a new life with the treatment.

Lung Cancer Treatment in India for Africans

Posted by: Jesse on May 8th, 2014 no responses.

Lung cancer treatment in India can be a good option for Africans who have been diagnosed with the dreaded disease and do not know where to go. The tumor appears silently and continues to grow, making the situation quite grave even before it can be detected on imaging tests such as x-rays.

Cancer treatments in India are relatively cheap and the doctors here are highly experienced.

 

Cost of Lung Cancer Treatments in India

 

There is no definite estimate for the cost of lung cancer treatment in India as the treatment and the prices depend upon the cancer stage and kind of treatment advised by the doctor.   Imaging Tests for Lung Cancer Detection - India

In general, medical treatments in India are 50-90 percent cheaper as compared to the West.

 

Types of Lung Cancer

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

This comprises about 80-90 percent of all lung cancers and can be discovered in any of the four stages:

Stage I: Confined to the lung

Stage II & Stage III: Slightly spread but confined to the chest

Stage IV: Spread to other parts

 

Small Cell Lung Cancer

This is largely associated with a history of smoking and accounts for about 10-20 percent of all lung cancer cases.

 

If discovered at a very early stage, it can be found confined to the bronchi near the center of the chest or spread widely through the body slightly later.

 

Fewer than 5 percent of cases are of slow growing carcinoid tumors or other tumors of the lung, which can be surgically excised.

 

Lung Cancer Symptoms

Lung cancers are known to progress silently without showing any symptoms until in a fairly advanced stage. The symptoms can include:

  • Persistent cough
  • Hoarseness of voice
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Blood-streaked sputum
  • Recurring bronchitis or pneumonia
  • Unexplained weight loss and loss of appetite

 

Diagnosis & Treatment

If you or someone known to you has been detected with lung cancer, you can start with sending the reports of your tests conducted back home. X-rays, CT-scans, MRIs, are all done to confirm the location of the diseased area. If something is detected there, the doctor may order: Neat room in the healthcare inn

  • An analysis of the sputum sample
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Fine needle aspiration or biopsy

 

The treatments offered for lung cancer are:

Surgery – Depending upon the affected area, a small section, an entire big section, or the complete lung is removed.

Chemotherapy – For cases where the tumor is determined to be in a slightly advanced stage, drugs are administered.

Radiotherapy – Where surgery is not permissible, radiotherapy may be considered.

 

Any of the above techniques or a combination of these may be used, depending upon the cancer type and stage. The treatment plan to be followed for lung cancer can be determined only after thoroughly examining the reports of your tests.

 

Going to India for Lung Cancer Treatment

India has a robust medical care system with a large number of doctors and cancer specialists added to its pool every year. These cancer treatments are offered at one of the country’s top hospital, which has:

Take the cost of spinal fusion, for example. If you choose to have your procedure in the USA, be prepared to shell out anything between $60,000 and $90,000.

 

However, our value-for-money package for spinal fusion combined with decompression and arthroplasty in India is priced at just $13,000.

 

That’s more than 80% savings!
