Hanoi French hospital is outstanding! The doctors and other staff were very kind, everything was very clean, and there was no wait! This was far better than other hospitals I’ve been to all around I’d say.
I've been to several hospitals in Hanoi over the years, but visited Thu Cuc Hospital for the first time this month. You're given a translator as soon as you arrive and they help every step of the way, so it's really easy to communicate with the staff as well as understanding the recommendations and treatments prescribed. The hospital seems to be run quite efficiently, and everything was "western standard" clean. I saw both a Cuban doctor and a Vietnamese doctor; both did the appropriate exams and tests, and prescribed the recommended treatments (I'm a nurse and I actually do check this stuff before I blindly follow what I'm told by medical staff - something I've especially learned to do here in Vietnam). It seemed to be quite well-equipped, too. So, I'm impressed! Prices are less than in many of the private hospitals and I felt that I was treated very well. I'd definitely return to this hospital when the need for medical care arises again.

Salivary gland tumor is a rare type of tumor that starts in any of the salivary glands in your mouth, which can be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). The salivary glands produce saliva to help you swallow, protect your teeth from bacteria, lubricate your mouth, and help the digestion of food. There are three major pairs of salivary glands: parotid, submandibular, and sublingual. Salivary gland tumors usually occur in the parotid gland and treatment often involves removal of the tumor.
You are given a general anesthetic so you are unconscious during the surgery. If the tumor is located in the parotid gland, your surgeon makes an incision that extends from the front of your ear to your neck to access the gland, then they carefully remove as much of the tumor as possible without harming your facial nerve. If the tumor has spread into deeper tissue, your surgeon may remove the entire gland.
Most people are required to stay in the hospital for one to four days following the surgery. However, you should not leave Vietnam immediately after you are discharged from the hospital since you need to allow your body time to heal and attend follow-up checkups. The recommended length of stay is about 10 to 14 days.
The total recovery time until you do not feel any numbness and you are allowed to go back to your full routine can take as long as six months. However, you should be able to drive and do some light activities within 1-2 weeks. If your job is not too physical and does not involve heavy lifting, you may also be able to return to work in about two weeks.
Your doctor will give you a set of instructions that you need to follow. It is really important for you to change your lifestyle by having regular exercise (aerobic exercise, such as walking, swimming, or biking) and following a healthy, well-balanced diet. You may also need to attend follow-up appointments, particularly if your tumor is cancerous, to make sure that the tumor has not returned and there are no new growths.
Saliva gland tumor removal is a complicated surgery, but it is generally safe and effective if done by a skilled professional. All surgery carries some side effects and risks, and salivary gland tumor removal is no exception. The side effects and risks include bleeding, infection, blood clots, damaged nerve, lose control of facial muscles, Frey syndrome, change in appearance, and problems with the anesthesia.
If your tumor is cancerous, your doctor may recommend you to undergo chemotherapy or radiation therapy to kill cancer cells. Make sure to talk to your doctor about the best treatment option for your specific case.
Before salivary gland tumor removal, you may experience numbness in a part of your face, persistent pain, difficulty swallowing, swelling near your jaw, muscle weakness on one side of your face, and trouble opening your mouth widely. Salivary gland tumors can also spread to other organs and become life-threatening. After the removal, all of your symptoms can be relieved and the risk of the tumor spreading to other organs is reduced.
