    What you need to know about Lung Cancer Treatment in Malaysia

    Lung Cancer

    When you are diagnosed with lung cancer, you and your doctor will plan your treatment based on your specific condition, including your general health, the stage, and type of your cancer, as well as your preferences. The most common option to treat lung cancer include surgery (wedge resection, segmental resection, lobectomy, pneumonectomy), radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and a combination of these treatments.

    What does a Lung Cancer Treatment Procedure Involve?

    If cancer has not spread too far, you may opt for surgery, which is performed under general anesthetic. During surgery, your surgeon may remove part of the lung that has the tumor or remove the entire lung. If your doctor recommends radiation or chemotherapy, high-powered energy beams or drugs will be used to kill cancer cells. You may also choose to have immunotherapy, which uses your own immune system to fight cancer.  

    How Long Should I Stay in Malaysia for a Lung Cancer Treatment Procedure?

    Your length of stay in Malaysia depends on which procedure you underwent. With surgery, you may need to stay for 7 to 14 days. For chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy, the amount of time in Malaysia depends on how many cycles are required for your case.

    MyMediTravel currently lists 2 facilities in Malaysia offering Lung Cancer Treatment procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Lung Cancer Treatment can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

    What's the Recovery Time for Lung Cancer Treatment Procedures in Malaysia?

    You may be able to go back to work within 4 to 6 weeks after surgery, but the total recovery period may take about 6 to 8 weeks. After radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, you may be able to go back to work the next day or when you feel like you are healthy enough to go back. It is best to consult with your doctor how long until you can go back to your normal activities, including exercise.

    What sort of Aftercare is Required for Lung Cancer Treatment Procedures in Malaysia?

    You usually need to eat a healthy, balanced diet and do light exercises after your treatment. You also need to attend follow-up appointments so your doctor can monitor your condition. After radiation therapy, protect your skin by avoiding the sun, wearing sunscreen, using aloe vera cream, and wearing loose clothes.

    What's the Success Rate of Lung Cancer Treatment Procedures in Malaysia?

    The success rate of lung cancer treatment is rather high. However, each of the treatments carries some side effects and the risk of complications. It is estimated that about 1 in 5 lung cancer surgeries lead to complications, including pneumonia, excessive bleeding, and deep vein thrombosis. For therapies, the risks include pain in the chest, fatigue, persistent cough, hair loss, feeling sick, diarrhea, and infertility.

    Are there Alternatives to Lung Cancer Treatment Procedures in Malaysia?

    Some of the alternatives to lung cancer treatment are targeted drug therapy and palliative care. However, if you do not want to undergo any of the treatments, your doctor may recommend comfort care to treat only the symptoms of lung cancer, such as shortness of breath and pain. 

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    After a successful lung cancer treatment, the symptoms you experience before treatment will no longer be there, the chance of your cancer spreading to other organs are greatly reduced.

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
