When getting a quote for Travel Insurance to cover Breast Cancer, you will be asked a number of questions. These will include:
- 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 diagnosis ?
- How frequently are you seeing a hospital Doctor about your Cancer ?
- Are you currently having any treatment or is any planned ?
- Are you currently 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 prior to booking your trip.
If you are taking any medicine it is important to make sure you pack enough to cover the full length of your tip, and to take some extra in case of delays.
Take a Doctor's letter listing the medicines, type of Cancer and treatments you have had.
Take a note of the generic name of the drug you are taking, rather than the brand name in case you need to find replacement Medication while abroad as drugs can be known by different names around the world.
Confirm the medicines you are taking with you are allowed into the country you are travelling to.
Keep all medicine in the packaging that they were supplied in to assist customs staff.
It is not wise to have live vaccinations during, or up to 6 months after a course of chemotherapy as the immune system may be weakened.
If you have had surgery in the last 10 days it is not advisable to fly.
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 10 days any trapped air should have dissolved but discuss this with your surgeon if you are planning to travel after surgery.
Before you leave the country, it is important to purchase a Travel Insurance policy that will cover your Breast Cancer or any other pre existing medical condition you may have.
