Here is a cost quotation shared to me by a patient who is presently undergoing radiotherapy (linear acceleration) after a total mastectomy and axillary dissection for breast cancer at San Juan de Dios Hospital.
June 15, 2012
Total of 33 sessions
Planning – P17,500
Charge for use of machine – P1,500 / day x 33 days = P49,500 (whole course)
Professional fee – P1,000 /day x 33 days = P33,000 (whole course)
Total = P 100,000 (whole course)
[Note: Will await other cost quotations from other hospitals and other sharers.]
