Sarcoma is categorised as low, intermediate or high grade. Low grade Sarcoma are usually treatable just with surgery, although some chemotherapy and radiotherapy may be required.
Intermediate and high grade Sarcoma is treated with a combination of the two, with high grade sarcomas being treated more aggressively as they are more likely to metastasize (spread to different areas of the body).
Before you leave the country, it is important to purchase a Travel Insurance policy that will cover Sarcoma or any other pre existing medical condition you may have.
