New Lymphoma Treatments Have No Side Effects | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Larry Conrad went in for his annual physical on his 50th birthday. During his exam, his doctor found swollen lymph nodes in his armpits and groin. Conrad had a cough and said he'd lost weight because he 'felt full all the time'. His doctor ordered a series of tests, and Conrad was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the most common type. He rejected the standard chemotherapy protocol, and, like over half a million other Americans, traveled outside the US for cancer treatment. According to TMD Limited, a medial tourism company, many patients seeking care in foreign medical centers are going specifically for cancer treatment.

Looking Good & Feeling Better Can Be Within Reach

Looking Good & Feeling Better Can Be Within Reach | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

Hanna loved sports, running and working out at the gym, but nothing she did gave her the flat stomach she longed for. She laughed about her “kangaroo pouch,” the sagging belly she was left with after three pregnancies, but in truth the image she saw when she stood in front of the mirror upset her. Her husband Ian didn’t seem to mind, but so what? It was Hanna’s body and she minded, a lot.

Case Study: Joint Replacement | Extending Independent Living with Surgery in Mexico

Case Study: Joint Replacement | Extending Independent Living with Surgery in Mexico | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

Waiting for surgery is pretty standard in Canada where Harriet lived. The estimated wait time for a knee replace- ment was ten months, nearly a year. For everyone, the wait is annoying, but for Harriet it was a serious problem. Harriet provided the care for her dis- abled husband who was nearly helpless without her. Ironically, Ralph’s knees were fine. He had a lung condition and used oxygen, but it was Harriet, who needed the knee replacement.

Regretfully, her anxieties didn’t reduce that much when she was awake. Sonia was a woman with a problem. Her doctors warned her that she was “morbidly obese,” a term that meant she could die at any time from a number of maladies that were more likely for overweight individuals.”
