Find the Best Lung Cancer Hospital in Bangalore

Bangalore has 12 comprehensive cancer hospitals that treat lung 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 pulmonologist, a Medical oncologist and a Radiation Oncologist.

Lung cancer surgery is more complex than other cancer surgeries. The cancer hospital needs to have a well-equipped operating room with proper ICU backup, ventilators, blood bank and trained nursing staff to handle complexities. Most small hospital operating theatres are not suitable for such surgeries. Even a lung biopsy needs specialised imaging equipment to accurately approach the cancer in the lung. This type of specialised equipment is not available in all hospitals across Bangalore, few hospitals only have it.

Some lung cancers cases may require Radiation Therapy also. Latest models of machines are designed to be safer for patients and minimize harmful radiation to the rest of the body while treating cancer. You may check with our cancer counsellors to know which hospitals are better equipped and have senior oncologists to treat lung cancers.

Bangalore also has 10 affordable care cancer hospitals which offer high quality lung 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 lung cancer treatment will be 30-40% lower than that in large cancer hospitals.

Refer to the list of best cancer hospitals to learn more. If you need more information, speak to our cancer counsellor to find the right cancer hospital for your case. We recommend cancer hospitals to patients based on their clinical stage and financial condition.
