Oncology in Malaysia is 30% cheaper than in Western Europe with similar range of anticancer options
Oncologists at cancer clinics in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Georgetown, and other cities of Malaysia emphasize that early cancer screening saves life in adults and children. However, most people tend to visit doctor’s office when it often can be too late.
Local oncologists offer gender-related cancer screening packages for about $180 including ultrasound, urine and blood test, rectal and breast exam, and more. Unlike Western Europe where radiotherapy costs from $10,000, cancer hospitals in Malaysia feature similar treatment from $7,600.
Cancer hospitals in Malaysia provide the following types of treatment:
- tomotherapy or IMRT (for small, large, and multiple tumors)
- brachytherapy (for reproductive cancer and coronary artery diseases)
- targeted therapy
Foreign patients planning their medical trip to Malaysia often ask about cancer treatment at Mahkota Hospital in coastal Melaka.
