Foreign Nationals and Self-payers

As a general rule in oncology, early detection of cancer typically leads to better treatment outcomes and reduces 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 before it causes any problems. This is exactly the purpose of Preventive check-ups and Cancer screening.

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