Ms. Ndiaye Malisa, from Senegal, had gotten treated from Breast Cancer and decided to undergo a PET scan to check whether everything is alright. Breast cancer develops in the cells of the breasts. Breast cancer is more common in women than in men. A lump in the breast, bloody flow from the nipple, and changes in the form or texture of the nipple or breast are all signs of breast cancer. Its treatment is determined by the cancer’s stage. Chemotherapy, radiation, hormone treatment, and surgery may be used in combination.
Ms. Ndiaye had gotten the required treatment and was now free from Breast Cancer. After the treatment, she wanted to be sure that the cancer had not resurfaced. The test was not available in Senegal, so the patient wanted a reasonable option.
Ms. Ndiaye looked for a medical tourism company that would suggest to her the best destination where could find the best doctor and hospital for the PET scan at an affordable rate. While searching on the internet, she came across MediGence. Ms. Ndiaye found the healthcare options by MediGence quite reasonable and comprehensive. She left a query on their website and within a few hours, a representative of MediGence got back to her quickly and asked her to send a few details. Post the submission of the requested details, she got a call back from MediGence to know more about her condition. Ms. Ndiaye shared her case details and medical reports with them. The patient advisory team provided a list of the best doctors and hospitals from different countries. Ms. Ndiaye chose the healthcare facilities at LIV Hospital, Ulus in Turkey.
