No one but your doctor or insurance company can answer this precisely. It really depends on the type of Cancer and treatment that will be received. My personal experience included 3 surgeries, 10 months of Chemotherapy, 2 months of Radiation, 3 PET Scans, and more medications, CT Scans and Xrays than I care to count. I had good insurance so didn't pay alot out of pocket. If I had not had insurance, the cost would have been well over $300,000.00 for everything. Not to mention followup care for the next 5 years which includes regular PETs, CTs, Xrays and blood tests.
