Bangalore has 12 comprehensive cancer hospitals that treat oral cancer. These hospitals offer all treatment facilities under one roof, but are expensive.
A good cancer hospital needs to have a strong oncology team with an experienced surgical oncologist, a reconstruction specialist / plastic surgeon, a Medical oncologist and a Radiation Oncologist. Head and neck onco surgeons have taken special training in treating cancers of the mouth and neck. Therefore, many good cancer hospitals have head and neck oncologists who dedicatedly treat oral cancers.
Many oral cancer cases benefit from Radiation Therapy. Not all hospitals have latest Radiation therapy machines. Latest models of machines are designed to be safer for patients and minimize harmful radiation to the rest of the body while treating cancer. Another important facility for oral cancer treatment is availability of rehabilitation services such as speech therapy. Some hospitals have these facilities available in house, rest may outsource. You may check with our cancer counsellors to know which hospitals are better equipped and have senior oncologists and specialist teams to treat oral cancers.
Bangalore also has 10 affordable care cancer hospitals which offer high quality oral cancer treatment. Oncologists from large cancer hospitals consult in these mid-size hospitals and offer treatment here at affordable rates. If you need advanced cancer diagnostics or advanced treatment, you will be referred to a larger partner hospital. However, overall cost of oral cancer treatment will be 30-40% lower than that in large cancer hospitals.
