I have a private ENT that specialises in cancer removal in the throat with a TORS machine. The public sector hospitals do not allow usage of the TORS for ENT. Paid a bit to use it in a private hospital as the costs of the Tors lies outside Medicare. Unfortunately the cancer has re-occurred in the other tonsil so I requested a referral to the public cancer center for radiation/ Chemo treatment. I need more support this time that private doesn't give without mortgaging your house. Got a call back after 1 day and seeing the radiation oncologist next Tuesday. Not having an op this time as the cancer is a bugger and we don't think having another op will totally remove the cancer.
