Cancer is a disease that is being diagnosed extremely frequently in people now a days, even if you keep your eating and drinking habits, exercise regularly and keep your body in shape, chances are that you could get cancer by just breathing the air in our cities that we find has become extremely polluted and is crossing danger levels of that haven't been breached in decades. From having crops grown with pesticides rather than organic manure to having fruits being polished with wax or being painted over with highly toxic lead paint so that they look more appealing and so that they would sell more easily.

This harmful presence of these substances in our life has made it increasingly deadly for us to live in harmony. People who have started to figure out that these things are causing us harm, have taken appropriate measures to abstain from non organic produce and have taken measures to use protective masks while outside as well as keeping air purifiers inside their homes, but again only taking these few measures will not solve anything, we in our lives are seeing examples of people who led the best and healthiest of lives becoming affected by cancer. As a disease this takes a huge toll on your body both physically and mentally, but we see this evil disease take a toll on the financial health of a family too.

As India is still a growing economy, it does not have a lot highly regarded hospitals, the best surgeons are usually found in premier hospitals and no wonder that there is usually a long time to wait before you get the chance to be admitted. That coupled with the reason that modern private hospitals appear to look much cleaner as well is the reason that people often look to private hospitals as you easily get admitted, appears cleaner and the name is heard a lot through advertisements as well. But these Private hospitals to maintain their reputation have to hire the best professionals and buy the best machines and equipment. This drives up costs and hence they have to charge more.

On its own the chemo drug is quite expensive as well, Added to it the cost of surgery and radiation combined with all sorts of scans, reports and other procedures the bill goes up through the roof.
