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. We should be aware of the early symptoms and signs of cancer e.g. growing lump, abnormal bleeding, prolong cough, drastic weight loss, loss of appetite, voice changes, nose blockage/bleeding, worsening pain, change of bowel habits etc.
At Timberland Medical Centre, we have various specialist doctors who are capable of detecting cancer by physical examinations, screening test, 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.
After more than 23 years in service, Timberland Medical Centre is among the leading private hospitals and medical centres in the region (Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, Kalimantan) to specialize in Oncology; assisting in the healing of the sick so they may enjoy a better quality of life.
