Tell us about yourself

My name is Lulu, 44 years old. I have been getting my annual mammograms without fail for the past 10 years. However, in 2015, my results lead my doctor to perform a biopsy on my left breast. The further tests lead to me being diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) which is early-stage of breast cancer but it is only confided to the milk ducts and has not spread. My gynaecologist said I should go see a specialist to get best options for my case.

How did you know about MedicoExperts?

I heard on the radio about MedicoExperts organizing an OPD and surgical camp in my country, Nigeria Out of curiosity, I got in touch with them to check if they could help and diagnose me. They asked me to register and come for detailed appointment. I did, and after sharing the report with the oncologist from India, they told me that they could do a breast-conserving surgery i.e. lumpectomy and radiation in my case as the cancer had not spread, however, I would have to travel to India for the treatment. As I was more comfortable with the Indian oncologist I met, I agreed to travel and began raising funds. One of the MedicoExperts team member was in constant touch with me.

How was your experience with MedicoExperts and the Indian Surgeon?

As I said, someone from MedicoExperts was always checking up on me, even before I began my journey. They were very courteous and helping. I am glad they choose to come to my country that helped me get a very good diagnosis of my condition, and I was able to get timely treatment as well. The onco-surgeon who treated me was very good and was well experienced. Thank you MedicoExperts.
