How much does breast cancer treatment cost in Kenya?
25 million if one undergoes an operation, according to researchers affiliated to the National Cancer Control Programme and the National Cancer Institute, Kenya.
Patients seeking basic treatment for breast cancer pay between Sh175,200 and Sh1. 98 million while the cost shoots up to between Sh758,000 and Sh2.
What is the duration of treatment of breast cancer?
Each treatment session is followed by a period of recovery. Typically, if you have early-stage breast cancer, you’ll undergo chemotherapy treatments for three to six months, but your doctor will adjust the timing to your circumstances. If you have advanced breast cancer, treatment may continue beyond six months.
At what stage can breast cancer be cured?
Stage 2. Individuals with stage 2 breast cancer have cancer cells in their breast tissue, the nearby lymph nodes, or both.
This stage of cancer is curable with a combination of treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hormonal therapy.
How long a person can live after breast cancer?
The average 5-year survival rate for all people with breast cancer is 89%. The 10-year rate is 83%, and the 15-year rate is 78%. If the cancer is located only in the breast (Stage I), the 5-year survival rate is 99%.
