Your doctor might refer you to visit an oncologist in a number of circumstances such as:

If you are undergoing a medical procedure of any kind and your the consulting physician notices a tumor or abnormal growth for which he needs a second opinion

  • You notice an abnormal growth and want it to get diagnosed if it is cancerous or non-cancerous
  • For the removal of a cancerous tumor
  • If you are in need of chemotherapy for the treatment and prevention of cancer

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of cancer treatment in Spain?

The cost of cancer treatment depends on a number of factors. Type of cancer and its location in the body, its severity, the stage at which cancer is, and most importantly the procedure approach being adopted. In the majority of cases, cancer cannot be treated with a single treatment approach. The treatment regimen consists of multiple approaches depending on the response to a particular therapy. This is accompanied by a series of diagnostic tests to be done on a regular basis and the utmost care required by the patient.

The cost per session for chemotherapy starts from US$ 1,020 and for Radiotherapy, it is US$ 1,090. Stereotaxic Radiotherapy package is offered by Quirónsalud Hospital Group at US$ 15,300. Many hospitals, in addition, offer a comprehensive package of all the diagnostic tests to be done before the beginning of realistic treatment. The package starts from US$ 6,100 that includes complete body CT scan, MRI, blood tests, pathological anatomy, and PET CT.

What are the factors affecting the cost of cancer treatment in spain ?

Three most crucial factors decide the cost of the treatment: Type of cancer and its severity, treatment approach, and duration of the treatment. Apart from these critical factors, there are several other factors like medication costs, diagnostic tests, hospital charges, and doctor’s consultation and follow up fees may incur an ancillary cost to the patient.

The use of the most recent technology remains another factor affecting the general cost structure of the treatment. Other complications arising during or post-surgery are not included in total package cost, the patient has to resolve it separately.

What are the different types of cancer treatment in spain?

Following are the different types of cancer treatment offered in Spain

  • Chemotherapy: A systemic treatment where drugs are administered intravenously or given orally to kill cancer cells

  • Hormonal Therapy: Certain cancers (breast and prostate) are encouraged by hormones. This therapy act by adding, removing and/or blocking body hormones that stop/restricts the growth of cancer cells

  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT): Advanced radiation therapy for reducing the damage to active cells and tissues by the use of the high precision technique

  • Radiotherapy: Use of ionizing radiations to kill the cancer cells

  • Targeted Therapy: This therapy acts by blocking/interfering some molecules required by the cancer cells for their growth

  • Brachytherapy: Equally known as radioactive seeds, where radiation therapy is used to kill the cancer cells. It differs from radiotherapy, as radioactive material is directly placed on the tumor in this method

  • Image-Guided Radiosurgery: Procedure that helps achieve pinpoint accuracy to treat cancer tumors, surgical instruments are used with preoperative or intraoperative images by surgeons

  • Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT): Imaging techniques are demonstrated during the radiation treatment, that directs radiation therapy to utilize imaging coordinates

  • Photodynamic Therapy: This therapy involves the use of a drug (photosensitizing agent) and a distinct kind of light. During this therapy, a particular wavelength of light is incident on the drug, whereby the photosensitizing agent gets activated and oxygen is produced. This helps in eliminating the cancer cells. The wavelength determines the distance traveled by light in the body. Different wavelengths are used to treat distinct parts of the body

  • Stem Cell Cancer Treatment: Stem cells are early blood cells that develop into RBCs, WBCs, and Platelets. Stem cell transplant stimulate bone marrow growth and suppress the disease

  • Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy: Introduced in 2007, this method delivers treatment with accuracy and speed. High dose distributions with accurate target volume are achieved with this novel radiation technique

  • Gene Therapy: Utilising genes to treat cancer. Abnormal or the absent gene is replaced with the healthy one so that useful proteins are produced.

  • Proton Therapy: Proton beams are irradiated on the cancer tissue to treat the cancer

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT): This method is also termed as Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR). Excessive dose of radiation consisting of several beams and of different intensities is aimed at various angles of the body to target the tumor

What is the success rate for Cancer Treatment in Spain ?

The survival rate in cancer treatment is crucially affected by the type of cancer and the stage at which cancer is diagnosed. Apart from these two crucial factors, age, general health of the patient, gender, and race (in some cancers) also play a role.

For instance, Breast Cancer when diagnosed at stage I, has 98.8% to 100% 5 years survival rates. If the cancer is diagnosed at stage II, the survival rate is dropped down to 93%. The best part is that the survival rate with respect to Breast Cancer has been consistently increasing (reported by American Cancer Society).

For small cell lung cancer, the early-stage diagnosis has led to a rise in surviving count and rate. Diagnosis at stage I have a survival rate of 31%, and at stage II it is 19%.

In the case of prostate cancer, 80% chances are that cancer might spread to bones (hip, spine, and pelvis bones) and still be termed as prostate cancer. Post their relocation, the growth is resumed and new tumors are formed. At stage I, without bone metastasis, the five years survival rate is 56% and at stage II with bone metastasis, it is merely 3%.

The hospitals in Spain shorten the time lapse between the diagnosis and treatment. The hospitals have integrated fundamental and applied research and have rapidly paced the efforts to transfer clinical knowledge to practice. Most innovative technology and exceptionally skilled healthcare workforce in Spain have uplifted the 5-year survival rates for the majority of the cancers.False
