      • Slides


      Talking about Cancer Treatment in Asia is difficult, because Asia cover from East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia and Middle East, thus it’s difficult to demonstrate all region as one. Because of these facts I’ll focus my talk on Southeast Asia and Thailand will be use as a prototype.

      Cancer treatment by itself could be from diagnostic work up till end of life care, so I’ll cover all these aspects as much as possible. First is the diagnosis which will include how to make diagnosis, Second is the treatment option and Third is the outcome of the treatment , Fouth is the barrier of all these factors and Fifth is the care of the lung cancer patients both the availability and accessibility to these treatment options.

      Thus there’re a lot of improvement that need to be done inorder to improve the care of Lung Cancer patient in South east Asia
