You have got papillary carcinoma of thyroid with involvement of neck glands.
After surgery , usually the treatment with radioiodine is required and chemotherapy is also given in cycles according to the extent of invasion of the cancer cells.

Hello.

Thanks for writing back.

For the radioiodine treatment and for chemotherapy cycles usually admission is not required. It is given on day care basis.

For further treatment you will have to consult a radiotherapist or cancer specialist. You can visit Mahatma XXXXXXX Cancer Hospital and Research Institute, MVP Colony, Vishakapatnam.

Regarding the financial implications, the cost of therapy depends on the drugs which are prescribed for chemotherapy. It also depends on whether the chemotherapy is needed. You can discuss about this with the doctor during your visit.

Sincerely hope this helps you.

Wishing you an early recovery.
