Cancer Treatment in Iran Is the End to Your Cancer Suffering

Fear of cancer is worse than cancer itself. Cancer is a disease that begins with the rapid and abnormal growth of various cells in the body and then causes damage to the patient's body by invasion to destroy and to occupy the existing space. The abnormal growth of these cells eventually results in the formation of large masses (tumours). These tumours are divided into two types of malignant and benign tumours. Prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer are called oncology,and the three main areas in this field are radiotherapy, chemotherapy,and surgery. Different cancers are named based on the location from which cancer started, such as brain cancer, head and neck cancer, oral cancer, lung cancer, etc.
In recent years, cancer worldwide has increased by about 20%. The most well-known causes of cancers are smoking, an unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity and infections. 85% of the causes of cancer are environmental factors, and 15% are genetic. Men ages 40 to 45 and women aged 29 and older are more susceptible to cancers.
Every year, many physicians and researchers from around the world, including Iran, attend world congresses to exchange the latest scientific advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Using the new methods of cancer treatment in Iran has, in many cases, eliminating the need for surgical procedures, IMRT is one of them. Iran's medical knowledge is at the forefront of the Middle East, and the quality of healthcare we deliver to patients is in line with world standards.

Why We Suggest Cancer Treatment in Iran
Given that early detection of cancer requires no more chemotherapy and high costs, in recent years, the facilities needed to diagnose and treat cancers in conjunction with surgery in the operating room are provided in Iran. Among these facilities are high-quality digital mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and biopsy acupuncture, all cosmetic surgeries, nuclear examination, and rapid pathology examination.
New ways of cancer treatments in Iran have led to more effective treatment with very low side effects. For example, breast cancer, which is one of the most common cancers, can be treated with hormone therapy, chemotherapy, surgery, Target therapy, and IMRT.
Since some of the cancer patients are children, Iran has established hospitals for pediatric cancers that have the necessary standards to treat all types of cancer. Leukemia, brain and nervous tissue, liver, kidney, and lymphoid tissue are the most common types of cancer in children, respectively. 

Cost of Cancer Treatment in Iran

In Iran, infertility treatments, cosmetic surgeries, maternal and fetal medications, cardiovascular diseases, ophthalmic and general surgeries, orthopedics, cancer treatment, and organ transplants are among the services that have the highest tourist attraction in health. Studies on medical costs show that treatment costs in Iran are much lower than in developed countries.
Iran is much more cost-effective than its regional rivals, including Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain, as well as Southeast Asia, such as Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, and India. Some patients in European countries are currently coming to Iran for cancer treatment because the cost of treatment in Europe is high.
The cost of cancer treatment in these countries is sometimes four to five times higher than in Iran. The cost of cancer treatment varies depending on the amount of medication, tests performed, the length of treatment, and many other services. For example, the cost of cancer treatment for breast cancer starts at $ 800, colon cancer starts at $ 3000, and bone cancer starts at $ 3000. Refer to the Cancer Treatment Price Comparison Table to see the price range.

Cancer Treatment Physicians in Iran
An oncologist is a doctor who treats cancer and provides medical care to cancer patients. An oncologist doctor can treat cancer using chemotherapy or other drugs. An oncologist surgeon will remove the tumour and surrounding tissue during surgery. He also performs certain types of biopsy to help diagnose cancer. A radiation oncologist treats cancer using radiation.
Some twenty years ago, a number of Iranian clinical oncologists trained in the UK returned to the country and, for the first time, began treating solid tumours with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. After several years, they began training in clinical oncology with other radiologists and medical physicists. In the year 1977, they founded the Iranian Society of Clinical Oncology. Each year, the Society organizes various seminars and sessions, and through scientific exchanges, tries to keep Iranian physicians on cancer prevention and treatment in line with the best physicians in the world. On the other hand, the Iranian Cancer Society aims to promote the educational, research and therapeutic activities of cancer (basic sciences, diagnostic and therapeutic, etc.).

Signs and Symptoms of Cancer Diagnosis

"It is true that cancer is the most treatable disease in the world, but provided that the diagnosis is timely," said Professor Qavamzadeh, a leading Iranian oncologist in the field of Iranian oncology.
Since about 40% to 50% of cancers are preventable if you see any warning symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, hoarseness, abnormal bleeding in postmenopausal women, excessive coughing, skin lesions and wounds to any part of the body and it lasts longer than two weeks referral to a physician is necessary. It is likely that be a symptom of cancer.
The primary clinical methods of diagnosing cancer are imaging tests, CT scans, MRIs, ultrasound, diagnostic tests such as pathology, biopsy, and scanning.
