Every woman is at risk for gynaecological cancer, the type of cancer that originates from a woman’s reproductive organs, and this risk increases with age. The process is defined by the uncontrolled proliferation of abnormal cells in the cervix, ovaries, uterus and the vagina.
Gynaecological cancers have become a serious health issue for women in Singapore. The Singapore Cancer Society claims that uterine cancer is now the fourth most common cancer in women, followed by ovarian cancer, which is also an ever-increasing malignancy affecting women around the world.
The Well Women Programme involves several tests such as a Physical Examination, Gynae Assessment, Pap Smear, and a Pelvic Ultrasound.Gynaecological Cancer Health Screening includes services such as a Pap Smear and Colposcopy for pap smear abnormalities. Extensive assessment is the key to be able to detect any neoplastic risk or threat.
