x-ray fluorescence had a comment on my Pancreatic Cancer post.
"Hi, Can anyone please let me know ..how much there will be expenses there for Pancreatic Tumor Operation?"
The answer to that is not quite as simple as it should be. Here is why. There are several surgical options that are available here in the US. I imagine each of these come with a different price tag attached to them. The first thing I would do is check with my insurance company if any of these procedures are covered and to what extend. Now to the technical information of the surgeries.
The procedures could be divided into two categories:
1. Surgery before the cancer has metastasized
2. Palliative surgery if cancer already has metastasized to other tissues.
All in all there are six surgeries performed, three in each category…
