Foreign nationals and self-payers

As a rule in oncology, the earlier a cancer is detected, the better are treatment results and the lower is overall treatment complexity.

First stages of cancer are usually curable.

We should always monitor our health, so that we could detect a pre-tumor condition or malignant tumor at the time when it does not cause any problems yet. This is exactly the purpose of Preventive check-ups and Oncologic screening.

You should care for your body in the same way as you care for your own property.
