Going abroad to treatment

May 18, 2018 - 17:24

My dad has just been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, I have been reading a lot about proton treatment etc and some good things about Germany for treatment. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience of this and any recommendations. Thanks in advance

Dear fionat,

Thank you very much for your message. I am sorry to hear of your dad’s diagnosis, it must be a very worrying time for you and your family. Treatment options abroad are often a decision based on an individuals disease and current health. I would advise that you discuss the treatment options advised for your father with the consultant. If you would like to call the Nurseline on Freephone 1800 200 700 we would be happy to discuss in further detail.
Best wishes,
Cancer Nurse.
