Those who are suffering from lung cancer are expected to spend about $10,000 - $13,000 every month. This can be very problematic to those who do not have money. Some people allow the disease to consume them because they know about the cost.

Do remember that the expenses will differ a bit depending on the medications that will be prescribed to the person who has cancer. There will also be more expenses depending on the stage of cancer and a lot of other factors. Some people who need financial help may try their luck with different cancer organizations that may offer some finances for their much-needed treatment.

Lung cancer is known to be one of the hardest cancers to cure not only because it can be aggressive but also because it is expensive. People who have no money have no chances of getting the right treatments to get cured. The surgery for the removal of the tumor is already priced at $15,000.

If people would undergo chemotherapy, they would have to prepare up to $200,000. Those who need to undergo radiation therapy would also need about $50,000. There are still extra costs that people have to think about especially with the medications they have to take. Cancer is hard to cure because it is ridiculously expensive.
