Uterus Cancer Treatment Cost in India

Uterus Cancer Treatment Cost in India depends on the type of treatment required, your medical condition, hospital and the city where you choose to get the treatment done. You may need either surgery or chemotherapy, or may need both; or a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy and surgery. The cost would thus change accordingly.

Typical costs for Skin Cancer Treatment in India looks like:

Procedure Cost (Range in US $)
Investigations 500-1,000
Chemotherapy 300-2,000 per cycle
Radiotherapy 3,500-5,500
The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.

Factors that affect Uterus Cancer Treatment Cost in India:

  • Type of Treatment

    Many times, the best option might include more than one type of treatment. Surgery, alone or with other treatments, is used to treat most uterine cancers. The cost associated with each type of treatment is different. IndiCure recommends you to understand the options by consulting our expert oncologists.

  • Number of Chemotherapy and Radiation Cycles

    The overall uterus 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.

  • Oncologist's Fees

    An important expense when it comes to your uterus 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.

  • Surgical Facility

    Having your treatment for uterus 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.

  • Pre and Post Treatment Expenses

    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.

Patient Testimonials

  • 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: Prostate Cancer

Uterus Cancer

The most frequent type of cancer in the female reproductive system is uterine cancer. Uterine cancer develops when healthy cells in the uterus begin to alter and grow uncontrollably, resulting in a tumor.

Tumors can be malignant or non cancerous. A malignant tumor is one that has the potential to grow and spread to other areas of the body. A benign tumor can expand, but it will not spread to other parts of the body.

Uterine cancer is divided into two types:

  1. Endometrial Cancer:

    The majority of uterine malignancies are of this type. It arises from the endometrium's cells. Endometrial cancer is the common name for this type of cancer.

    Endometrioid carcinoma is a frequent subtype of endometrial cancer. Treatment for this type of cancer differs based on the tumor's grade, how far it has spread into the uterus, and the disease's stage or extent.

  2. Uterine Sarcoma:

    This type of uterine cancer originates in the uterine glands' supporting tissues or in the uterine muscle, the myometrium. Sarcoma contributes for approximately 2% to 4% of all uterine malignancies.

Symptoms of Uterine Cancer:

The symptoms of uterine cancer might be mistaken for those of a variety of other illnesses. This is especially true for diseases that affect the reproductive organs.

Endometrial cancer or uterine sarcoma symptoms include:

  • Vaginal bleeding after menopause
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Lower abdominal pain or cramping in the pelvis.
  • Thin white or clear vaginal discharge in postmenopausal women
  • If you're over 40, you may experience unusually long, heavy, or regular vaginal bleeding.

Causes and Risk factors for Uterus Cancer

Doctors don't know what causes endometrial cancer. What is known is that something causes changes (mutations) in the DNA of cells in the endometrium, or uterine lining.

Normal, healthy cells become abnormal as a result of the mutation. Healthy cells proliferate and replicate at a predetermined rate before dying at a predetermined period. Abnormal cells multiply and develop out of control, and they don't perish. The aberrant cells that are collecting form a bulk (tumor). Cancer cells infiltrate adjacent tissues and can break out from a primary tumor to spread to other parts of the body (metastasize).

Factors that increase the risk of uterine/ endometrial cancer include:

  • Imbalance of female hormones in the body: Fluctuations in the balance of female hormones in the body can increase the risk of uterus cancer.
  • Longer mensturating years: Early onset of menstruation, or late menopause increases the risk of endometrial cancer.
  • No Pregnancy: Women who have never been pregnant are at a higher risk of endometrial cancer than someone who has had at least one pregnancy.
  • Aging: Aging increases your risk of endometrial cancer.
  • Obesity: Being obese increases your risk of endometrial cancer.

When is Endometrial Cancer Treatment Needed?

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 endometrial cancer, you need to start the treatment immediately.

How is Endometrial Cancer Treatment Done?

Treatment for uterus cancer is determined by a number of criteria, including the cancer's stage, any other health issues you may have, and your personal preferences. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy or a combination of various treatments can all be used to treat endometrial cancer.

Surgery: Endometrial cancer is usually treated by a hysterectomy, which entails removing the uterus as well as the fallopian tubes and ovaries (salpingo-oophorectomy). A hysterectomy prevents you from becoming pregnant in the future. You'll also go through menopause if your ovaries are removed, if you haven't already.

Your surgeon will also look for symptoms of cancer spreading surrounding your uterus during operation. Lymph nodes may also be removed for testing by your surgeon. This aids in determining the stage of your cancer.

Radiation therapy: To kill cancer cells, radiation therapy employs high-energy beams such as X-rays and protons. Your doctor may offer radiation to lower your chances of a cancer return following surgery in specific cases.

Radiation therapy may be recommended before surgery in some cases to reduce a tumor and make it easier to remove. If you aren't in good enough health to have surgery, radiation therapy may be your only option.

Radiation therapy can include the following procedures:

  • Radiation emitted by a machine located outside of your body. You lie on a table as a machine distributes radiation to particular points on your body during external beam radiotherapy.
  • Radiation that is injected into your body. Internal radiation (brachytherapy) entails inserting a radiation-filled device, such as small seeds, wires, or a cylinder, into your vaginal cavity for a brief period of time.

Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that involves the use of chemicals to kill cancer cells. You may receive a single chemotherapy treatment or a combination of two or more drugs.

Chemotherapy medications can be either orally or injected into your veins (intravenously). These medications enter your bloodstream and kill cancer cells as they move through your body.

Chemotherapy may be prescribed following surgery if there is a chance that the cancer will return. Chemotherapy can also be used prior to surgery to shrink the size of the tumor, making it more likely to be entirely eliminated during surgery.

Hormone therapy: Hormone therapy entails taking drugs to reduce the body's hormone levels. Cancer cells that rely on hormones to develop could perish as a result. If you have advanced endometrial cancer that has gone beyond the uterus, hormone therapy may be an option.

Targeted drug therapy: Targeted medication treatments concentrate on specific defects found in cancer cells. Targeted medication treatments can kill cancer cells by preventing them from exploiting these defects. For advanced endometrial cancer, targeted medication therapy is frequently paired with chemotherapy.

Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy is a medicine that boosts your immune system's ability to fight cancer. Because cancer cells create proteins that blind immune system cells, your body's disease-fighting immune system may not target cancer. Immunotherapy works by interfering with the immune system's natural processes. If endometrial cancer has progressed and other treatments have failed, immunotherapy may be tried.

Questions to Ask

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 endometrial cancer treatment in India.

  • Is it time for endometrial cancer surgery?
  • Is the oncologist board certified?
  • How experienced is the surgeon?
  • Which language does the surgeon speak?
  • Is the treatment done in a well-equipped facility?
  • What cancer treatment option is recommended for me?
  • What about the risks involved?
  • Does the surgeon use a certified anesthetist?
  • How long will the recovery period be?

Preparation for the Surgery

Prepare to answer questions about your:

  • Medical history and exams
  • Previous surgeries
  • Current medication review
  • History of smoking, drugs, or alcohol

What Results can I expect from Cancer Treatment?

The results of the treatment depends on the stage of the uterus cancer. If detected early, there is a good chance of complete recovery.

What is the Recovery after Uterus Cancer Surgery Like?

Uterus removal surgery for endometrial cancer is a major surgery. An abdominal hysterectomy usually requires 3 to 7 days in the hospital. After an abdominal radical hysterectomy, the average hospital stay is 5 to 7 days.

It can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks to fully recover.

Frequently Asked Questions

Endometrial cancer, uterine sarcoma, and other rare forms of cancer that can develop in the uterus are all examples of uterine cancer. However, the phrases "endometrial cancer" and "uterine cancer" are frequently interchanged. This is due to the fact that endometrial malignancies are far more common than other cancers that might develop in the uterus.

Endometrial carcinoma is the most prevalent disease affecting the female's reproductive system in the United States. Approximately 3% of women are diagnosed with uterine cancer at some time in their lives.

You can do the following to lower your risk of endometrial cancer:

  • Control Diabetes
  • Maintain Healthy Weight
  • Discuss the dangers of hormone therapy after menopause with your doctor if you're considering it to help with menopause symptoms.
  • Talk to your doctor about oral contraceptives if you plan to use them

People who are designated female at birth (DFAB), including cisgender women and nonbinary people with vaginas, have a uterus as part of their reproductive system. It's the place where a baby develops and matures during pregnancy.

The body, also known as the corpus, is the top part of your uterus. Your cervix connects your uterus to your vagina at the end of your uterus. Uterine cancer is cancer that develops in the uterus's body. Cervical cancer, or cancer of the cervix, is a separate type of cancer.

The endometrium is the uterus' inner layer. During your menstrual cycle, it changes.

In the case of pregnancy, estrogen causes the endometrium to thicken. Your body generates less estrogen and more progesterone, a separate hormone, if you don't get pregnant. The uterine lining sheds when this happens. Periods occur during this time.

Your doctor may advise one or many of these tests to confirm uterus cancer treatment:

Lab Tests: CA-125 assay is a blood test that measures the protein CA-125. CA-125 levels above a certain threshold can indicate the presence of cancer in your body.

Imaging Tests: CT, MRI, Transvaginal ultrasound are the imaging tests advised to get the clear pictures of the uterus in your body.

Other Tests: May include endometrial biopsy, hysteroscopy and D&C

No. The Pap test (Pap smear) isn't used to diagnose or screen for uterine cancer. It examines the cervix for cancer.

The most common treatment for endometrial cancer is surgery. Your uterus and cervix will almost certainly be removed, in a surgery that is called hysterectomy. There are three different types of hysterectomy operations:

Total Abdominal Hysterectomy: Your uterus is accessed and removed through an incision (cut) in your abdomen.

Vaginal Hysterectomy: is when your uterus is removed through your vaginal canal.

Radical Hysterectomy: If cancer has spread to your cervix, you may need to have a radical hysterectomy. Your uterus and the tissues around it are removed by the surgeon. The top region of your vagina, adjacent to your cervix, is also removed by the surgeon.

During a hysterectomy, surgeons frequently do two additional procedures:

The ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed in a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO). The majority of patients require this extra step to ensure that all cancer is removed.

Lymph node dissection is a procedure for removing lymph nodes and determining whether cancer has spread.

Many women with uterine cancer must have their ovaries removed. However, removing the ovaries will cause you to enter menopause if you haven't already. If you're under 45 and premenopausal, speak with your doctor about whether or not you should keep your ovaries.

The following are some of the side effects of uterine cancer surgery:

Infertility- you won't be able to conceive after the surgery

Menopause- it has its associated symptoms, such as vaginal dryness and nocturnal sweats

Consult your healthcare physician if you're considering ERT. You and your partner can talk about your cancer risk and make the best decision for you.

No, there is no screening tool for uterine cancer. Regular testing isn't normally recommended for persons who don't have any symptoms. However, if you're at a higher risk, they may do so. If you're at high risk, talk to your doctor about getting frequent uterine cancer screenings.

Endometrial cancer has an 81 percent five-year survival rate. This means that 81 percent of patients who are diagnosed with the condition survive five years. When the cancer is limited and hasn't spread outside the uterus, the incidence is significantly greater. The survival rate thereafter rises to as high as 95%. Treatments and survival rates continue to improve.

When uterine cancer is untreated and spreads, it is fatal. Cancer that hasn't gone outside the uterus has a 95 percent survival rate. When cancer spreads to other parts of your body other than your uterus, your chances of survival drop to 17%. A good prognosis is dependent on early detection and treatment.

Endometrial cancer is frequently discovered at an early stage, which is fortunate. Because many people observe odd bleeding and report it to their doctors, this is the case. If cancer is detected early and hasn't spread to other organs, your uterus can be removed and the malignancy cured.

Any unexpected bleeding or spotting should be discussed with a healthcare physician. If you have a family history of endometrial cancer, talk to your doctor about getting tested every year. Beginning at the age of 35, you may require an endometrial biopsy once a year.

Any unusual bleeding should be reported to your doctor. If you still menstruate, abnormal bleeding includes bleeding between periods, and if you're postmenopausal, bleeding or spotting. Abnormal bleeding can be a sign of a variety of illnesses, including uterine cancer.

The most prevalent type of cancer, type 1, does not spread quickly. Cancers of type 2 spread swiftly and may necessitate more harsh therapy.
