This is Dr. David

stage III cervical cancer treatments would require external beam radiation therapy, chemotherapy with cisplatin chemo and also brachytherapy as well

it can be expensive treatment.

in australia, I thought they had universal health care for all citizens

the government should pay for radiation and chemotherapy and brachytherapy correct?

are you looking to come to the USA for treatment?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How many times of the chemotherapy treatments for the stage 3?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How much it's cost for the chemotherapy per session?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

usually cisplatin chemotherapy is done everyweek during the external beam portion of the radiation therapy

and also during the vaginal brachytherapy as well

so you could get between 5-10 sessions of cisplatin chemotherapy.

in the us, cisplatin chemotherapy is not that expensive, but it could be a few hundred to $1-2K per session.

most of the cost is in the external beam radiation therapy portion of the treatment.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How much the hospital charge? How many weeks I need to stay in the hospital?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

in the USA, we do the treatments as an out patient.

unless you develop medical problems, you won't have to go into the hospital.
