Costs of cancer are quite large, when you look at the list price. I don't know the grand total for mine, but I know it's a very high number. Fortunately, I was on Medicare. I had a good supplement plan, and so my out of pocket expenses have been very, very small. I'm grateful to have had as good a coverage as I did. The Lupron treatments are expensive. The Exchiva that I'm on is a very expensive treatment as well, running something like $1600 list per shot. But the Medicare and supplement insurance have been a tremendous help and so I'm very thankful for that.
