Cost to cancer treatments in Malaysia 2016


Hi all,

It is inviarably costly to treat cancer in Malaysia as with elsewhere in the world.  Best way to overcome this high cost is to be proactive in cancer prevention. Live the good lifestyle, exercise and eat well and of course prayers help. Insurance do help out in the cost but its premium is generally too high as well. Malaysian public health care services does contribute to assist cancer treatments at government hospitals.

Cilisos.my has an article published recently showing the costs involved for hospital stays, screenings and treatment of cancers in Malaysia. See link below:

However it is a general survey to the costs. The actual cost will depend on a lot of other factors; such as type of cancer, grade and stage of cancer and of course the treatment modality used to treat  / manage the cancer.

Take care all.
