Cancer itself as a diagnosis is associated with a sense of impending doom in indian scenario. This is mainly due to two reasons, first the usual lack of awareness among population regarding the curability of the disease, other being the long course of treatment associated with it. as has been discussed in numerous occasions, most recent being JIMA cancer is not anymore to be considered a disease that cannot be reigned. Even aside those who are cured of cancer with proper treatment, the patients wherein the stage of cancer is too advanced can lead a meaningful life with their disease made chronic by some form of treatment.
All these approaches either to cure a cancer patient of to control the disease to make it chronic, call for a prolonged treatment time which may extend to several of months, sometimes even years. In this context it becomes extremely important to manage the finances available with the patient in a wise manner to prevent unwanted breaks and non completion of planned treatment.
