An important expense when it comes to your ovarian cancer treatment in India is going to be your oncologist's fees. IndiCure recommends highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose cancer treatment in India with IndiCure.
Many times, the best option might include more than one type of treatment. Surgery, alone or with other treatments, is used to treat most ovarian cancers. The cost associated with each type of treatment is different. IndiCure recommends you to understand the options by consulting our expert oncologists.
The overall ovarian cancer treatment cost depends on the number of chemotherapy or radiation therapy cycles that a patient has to undergo. In some patients, the doctors might advise giving more than a couple of cycles of chemotherapy or radiation therapy to kill the cancerous cells.
Having your treatment for ovarian cancer in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility in India also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
The pre-surgical/treatment expenses are associated with the stage of the cancer and medical condition of the patient and thus the number and type of investigations and treatment required. Post-treatment expenses may include prescription medications and follow-up consultations.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

Ovarian cancer is a growth of cells that forms in the ovaries. The cells multiply quickly and can invade and destroy healthy body tissue.
The female reproductive system contains two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus. The ovaries - each about the size of an almond - produce eggs (ova) as well as the hormones estrogen and progesterone.
When ovarian cancer first develops, it might not cause any noticeable symptoms. When ovarian cancer symptoms happen, they're usually attributed to other, more common conditions.
Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:
It's not clear what causes ovarian cancer, though doctors have identified things that can increase the risk of the disease.
Doctors know that ovarian cancer begins when cells in or near the ovaries develop changes (mutations) in their DNA. A cell's DNA contains the instructions that tell the cell what to do. The changes tell the cells to grow and multiply quickly, creating a mass (tumor) of cancer cells. The cancer cells continue living when healthy cells die. They can invade nearby tissues and break off from an initial tumor to spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body.
The type of cell where the cancer begins determines the type of ovarian cancer you have and helps your doctor determine which treatments are best for you. Ovarian cancer types include:
Factors that can increase your risk of ovarian cancer include:
There's no sure way to prevent ovarian cancer. But there may be ways to reduce your risk:
Treatment of ovarian cancer usually involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. Other treatments may be used in certain situations.
Surgery: Operations to remove ovarian cancer include:
Surgery to remove one ovary. For early-stage cancer that hasn't spread beyond one ovary, surgery may involve removing the affected ovary and its fallopian tube. This procedure may preserve your ability to have children.
Surgery to remove both ovaries. If cancer is present in both your ovaries, but there are no signs of additional cancer, your surgeon may remove both ovaries and both fallopian tubes. This procedure leaves your uterus intact, so you may still be able to become pregnant using your own frozen embryos or eggs or with eggs from a donor.Surgery to remove both ovaries and the uterus. If your cancer is more extensive or if you don't wish to preserve your ability to have children, your surgeon will remove the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, the uterus, nearby lymph nodes and a fold of fatty abdominal tissue (omentum).
Surgery for advanced cancer. If your cancer is advanced, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove as much of the cancer as possible. Sometimes chemotherapy is given before or after surgery in this situation.
Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that uses chemicals to kill fast-growing cells in the body, including cancer cells. Chemotherapy drugs can be injected into a vein or taken by mouth. Chemotherapy is often used after surgery to kill any cancer cells that might remain. It can also be used before surgery.
Targeted therapy: Targeted drug treatments focus on specific weaknesses present within cancer cells. By attacking these weaknesses, targeted drug treatments can cause cancer cells to die.
Hormone therapy: Hormone therapy uses drugs to block the effects of the hormone estrogen on ovarian cancer cells. Some ovarian cancer cells use estrogen to help them grow, so blocking estrogen may help control the cancer. Hormone therapy might be a treatment option for some types of slow-growing ovarian cancers. It may also be an option if the cancer comes back after initial treatments.
Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy uses the immune system to fight cancer. The body's disease-fighting immune system may not attack cancer cells because they produce proteins that help them hide from the immune system cells. Immunotherapy works by interfering with that process. Immunotherapy might be an option for treating ovarian cancer in certain situations.
Supportive (palliative) care: Palliative care is specialized medical care that focuses on providing relief from pain and other symptoms of a serious illness. Palliative care can be used while undergoing other aggressive treatments, such as surgery and chemotherapy.
If you are suffering from any of the above mentioned symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately who would advise tests to confirm the diagnosis. If you are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you need to start the treatment immediately.
For early-stage cancer that hasn’t spread beyond one ovary, surgery may involve removing the affected ovary and its fallopian tube. This procedure may preserve your ability to have children.
If cancer is present in both your ovaries, but there are no signs of additional cancer, your surgeon may remove both ovaries and both fallopian tubes. This procedure leaves your uterus intact, so you may still be able to become pregnant using your own frozen embryos or eggs or with eggs from a donor.

If your cancer is advanced, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove as much of the cancer as possible. Sometimes chemotherapy is given before or after surgery in this situation.
Surgery to treat ovarian cancer is a major operation. It can take up to 3 months to fully recover. You'll need to take things very easy for at least the first couple of weeks. Rest as much as possible and try to avoid spending too long on your feet.
The results of the surgery chosen depend on the stage of ovarian cancer. If detected early, there is a good chance of complete recovery.
We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for Ovarian Cancer Treatment in India.
Prepare to answer questions about your:
Cancer is daunting. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised to travel immediately to India for the treatment. Found IndiCure online and traveled within 10 days. We were well received by Team IndiCure and got immediate treatment. I am very much humbled with the kindness of the doctors- each time we met they cleared all our doubts and were very helpful.
After undergoing 6 cycles of chemotherapy and surgery, I am cancer free now and ready to travel back to my country.
Thank you so much IndiCure for all the help.
Treatment: Breast cancer
After undergoing my cancer treatment in India, I have developed deep respect for Indian doctors and Indian healthcare services. The doctors are prompt in their actions and extremely helpful. I underwent extensive investigations including PET scan and other tests and as soon as they knew my exact condition, they made a comprehensive treatment plan and immediately started my treatment. The hospital staff was also very kind and co-operative.
Though it was a long journey, it was definitely a fruitful one. Thanks, IndiCure.
Treatment: Multiple Myeloma
I am highly indebted to the whole IndiCure team and Dr. Singh specifically for saving my life. The doctors in my home country Ghana had clearly stated that if I do not get operated for a brain tumor at the earliest, I would not live more than a month. But the promptness with which IndiCure team arranged things for me was something extraordinary. I am extremely satisfied with the whole experience and completely relieved of all my symptoms. Thanks a lot!
Treatment: Brain tumor
Thank you IndiCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in setting up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare teams. Your professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I've never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated on my Dad and we are so grateful for that. I would like to say a special thank you to Mr. Bachir, whom my dad now calls a friend. Mr. Bachir went above and beyond his job responsibilities and responded to the present every time my father needed him. I will recommend your services to friends and family every time I get the opportunity to do so. No amount of words can express my gratitude, so on behalf of my family, we would like to THANK YOU. Sincerely, a father's daughter.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

My son had the gastric sleeve in Delhi last September 2017. A year later my son is a different young man. Our reason for traveling from Australia, was his age being 14. You saved my sons life and I will be forever grateful for that, the care and service was immaculate. yes it can be a culture shock, in your another country. But it not any less of what we would have received here.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
