In brief: Why?

There may be many fine oncologists in mexico, but most americans believe that us cancer treatment is better-regulated and more advanced.
If you have specific reasons for going there such as having family nearby, and you have good care established there, then it's your choice. If you're trying to save money or you're following a "miracle cure, " then i caution you against leaving your health center.

I would suggest seeking out a holistic cancer hospital in the US, who will provide appropriate treatment, along with alternative treatments that may help, but definitely won't make things worse. Then, in between treatments, go to Mexico to relax on the beach and enjoy yourself to round out your treatment.

In brief: Mexico cancer tx

No. It's your health and your body.
But do not expect to be followed by a doc here in us if your treatment was in mexico. And you may have trouble finding a doc to see you here if there is a complication of that treatment. If you choose to have your treatment there, do your research on the facility & meds and the doctors and stick with major city such as mexico city. Avoid border towns.

In brief: Why Mexico?

Us offers the latest in cancer care.
If you want to try "alternative" treatments, you will waste your money and precious time. Remember, stove jobs' cancer became incurable while he was trying alternative treatments.
