Perspectives on treatment pathways – Malika


Unable to wait, Malika decided to pay for tests in the private sector.


In September, yeah I had… I was diagnosed at the beginning of September. On the 6th I had my result, the 5th, I had the test, the ultrasound and the biopsy. So it was the wait to do all the tests, to have the appointments in time. When you have cancer, you are looking forward to starting the treatment. The wait is infernal. And then I decided to have my tests in the private clinic, the CT scan*(Computerized Axial Tomography Scan) , both CT scans, abdominal and thoracic, because to wait till November 20, I couldn’t take it psychologically. So I refused.

* CT scan: Body scan that produces cross section images of the body’s internal structures.
