Brachytherapy is a radiation therapy that is used to treat cancer by placing radioactive sources near tumors and cancer cells. It is also known as internal radiation therapy. It is primarily of three types: Unsealed Internal Radiation Therapy, Interstitial Treatment, and Intracavitary Treatment. Hospitals offering Brachytherapy Treatment in India have state of the art equipment including radiotherapy equipment as well as the personnel to handle such complex instruments.
In contrast to external radiation, brachytherapy has lesser risks and side effects and lower time of treatment. Brachytherapy has achieved a high success rate in India, especially in cases of prostate cancer.
In India, the practice of brachytherapy is still not widespread, except at a few elite and private institutions. However, that said, India still offers competitive brachytherapy treatment compared to other countries such as the US and the UK. There are a number of premier hospitals with state of the art facilities offering the treatment to those with sufficient wherewithal. The cost of treatment varies depending on the type of cancer, from USD $900 for eye cancer to USD $7,500 for prostate cancer.
