Cancer risk is on the rise especially in developed countries; partly due to our lifestyle changes. Cancer is a deadly illness especially if it is detected at a late stage. Cancer involves mutated cells with uncontrolled and rapid cell growth which is able to spread and cause damage to other parts of the body.
Everyone should be aware of the early symptoms and signs of cancer: growing lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, drastic weight loss, loss of appetite, voice changes, nose blockage or bleeding, worsening pain and change of bowel habits.
At Timberland Medical Centre, we have various specialist doctors who are capable of detecting cancer by physical examination, screening tests, medical imaging and biopsy. Our Oncology Unit treats various types of cancers with a combination of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy. We are constantly adapting and innovating to provide the best treatment for our patients.
