When getting a quote for Travel Insurance to cover Breast Cancer, you will be asked several questions:
- Has the disease ever spread beyond the Breast?
- How long ago was the initial diagnosis of Breast Cancer made?
- Was the Breast Cancer completely surgically removed after the diagnosis?
- How frequently are you seeing a hospital Doctor about your Cancer?
- Are you currently having any treatment, or is any planned?
- Are you now on any form of Hormone Therapy?
- Are strong painkillers being taken?
Provided you feel well enough, Breast Cancer should not prohibit you from travelling. However, consult your doctor before booking your trip.
If you are taking any medication, it is essential to pack enough to cover the entire length of your trip and take some extra in case of delays.
Take a Doctor's letter listing the medication, type of Cancer and treatments you have had.
Take note of the generic name of the drug you are taking, rather than the brand name, in case you need to find replacement medication abroad, as different names worldwide can know drugs.
Confirm the medication you are taking with you is allowed into the country you travel to. Keep all medicines in the packaging they were supplied to assist customs staff.
Having live vaccinations during or up to 6 months after chemotherapy is not wise, as the immune system may be weakened.
If you have had surgery in the last ten days, flying is not advisable. During surgery, small amounts of air may become trapped in the body. During a flight, this air may expand and cause an increase in pressure. After ten days, any trapped air should have dissolved, but discuss this with your surgeon if you are planning to travel after surgery.
