Get expert second opinion on cancer diagnosis…
Timely diagnosis and treatment of cancer is crucial. Those who approach in the first stage of cancer often have 85% chance of cure; in stage 2, there is 60% chance of cure; in stage 3 it falls to 30% and those starting treatment at stage 4 will not survive for more than 5 years.
Often there are instances of different hospitals giving different diagnosis on the type of cancer. This is especially true in case of subtype of cancer and also in case of rare cancers. Such a situation leaves patients and their kin confused as to how to go ahead, because only a right diagnosis followed by appropriate treatment can lead to remission or cure of the cancer.
In view of such misgivings, thousands of patients from various parts of India flock to the most renowned cancer hospital in India i.e. Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) of Mumbai for diagnosis and treatment. However, shifting to Mumbai for months is an expensive affair for many patients and their family members.
To enable patients to receive treatment in their hometowns and yet ensure that diagnosis is right, TMH in association with Navya Network, has come forward to give conclusive opinion and diagnosis through the online mode, within a few days after all the medical records of the patient are uploaded. This service is provided at a paltry cost of Rs 5,000 for an Indian patient and $100 for a foreign patient. The fee is not payable by Indian BPL (Below Poverty Line) patients who will receive free service.
