Gynaecological Cancer Management

Over Two Decades of Quality Management of Women’s Cancer

As with all cancers, the key to a better chance of recovery for gynaecological cancer lies in early detection and treatment.

At Women Fertility & Fetal Centre, we are focused on empowering women with the latest information on cancer and routine screening tests.

What Causes Cancer in Women?

Gynaecological cancer is the umbrella term for cancers that develop in the female reproductive system, specifically the ovaries, cervix and uterus. If left untreated, these abnormal cells may grow and spread to other tissues and organs.

Several factors may contribute to increased risks of gynaecological cancer:

  • Age – Gynaecological cancers are most common in women in their 50s to 60s.
  • Genetics – If a family member has a particular gynaecological cancer, your risk of contracting said cancer is higher.
  • History of gynaecological cancer – A risk of recurrence is present.
  • Human papillomavirus – HPV infection is associated to high risks of cervical cancer.
  • Weak immune system – The body is subject to a higher risk of cancers.
With regular, modern health screenings, we help give women peace of mind

by offering effective management of a range of gynaecological cancers.

Cancer Screening Tests

Prevention through routine screenings is the best form of gynaecological cancer management. Here are a comprehensive range of screening tests available at our women’s clinic:

Pelvic exam

Apart from palpation, which is the physical pressing on the area to feel for abnormal growth, a pelvic exam can also be done through an ultrasound scan.

Pap smear

Cells from the cervix are collected to be examined in a lab to check for any anomalies or changes in the cervical cells.

HPV DNA test

With this test, the cervical cells are used to detect HPV infections, which are main precursors to cervical cancer.


X-ray images of the breasts are taken to detect tumours, especially those that can’t easily be felt.

Transvaginal ultrasound

Employing ultrasound waves to scan the pelvic area, detailed images of the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes are captured and further examined for detection of cancer.

Blood test

As many women with ovarian cancer are found to have high levels of CA-125 protein, a blood test can help determine one’s risk of ovarian cancer.

Genetic testing

These tests help to determine the risk of developing cancer through an inherited gene mutation (BRCA1/BRCA2).
