Apollo Chennai: Renowned for its multi-speciality services and cutting-edge technology.

AIG Hospital Hyderabad: Appreciated for its personalized care and focus on patient well-being.
Media Reports: Several reports suggest that over 300,000 Bangladeshis seek medical treatment abroad annually, with India being a major destination.
Research Articles: A 2017 study estimated that 220,000 overseas consumers of Indian healthcare services were from Bangladesh.
Industry Estimates: Some medical tourism industry reports indicate that Bangladeshis make up a significant portion of foreign patients in India, ranging from 25% to 50%.

Don't forget to do the operation in Bangladesh. My father had stomach cancer, doctor in Bangladesh said 5 lakh rupees minimum. Later we were taken to cmc hospital. But after seeing the report, the doctor said that the operation cannot be done, there will be problems and if the operation is done, it will cost one lakh and eighty thousand rupees. Later doctor gave chemotherapy. CMC Hospital is good but it takes a bit more time which will be troublesome for you.
CMC will be good.
You can show Cancer Institute (BIA), Adyar, Chennai, this is a non-profit hospital, good hospital that has low cost.
AGI Hospital Hyderabad best
First stage means full recovery if you can give good treatment. Cancer is something that grows faster when treatment is delayed. Later, even if Adele pours money, danger comes. Don't be afraid of quick money for this. Take CMC Cancer Treatments in Mumbai Tata is a bit slow.
