We provide a comprehensive workup for women suspected of having a gynaecological cancer. This includes a detailed history, physical examination, blood tests as well as diagnostic imaging.Cancer of the cervix is the 10th most common cancer affecting women in Singapore today. They are mainly caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and women with these cancers present with abnormal vaginal bleeding such as postcoital bleeding. Treatment consists of surgery alone or combined with radiation therapy or chemotherapy. It is considered the most preventable cancer as there is an effective vaccine (HPV vaccine) against it as well as an effective screening tool such as the pap smear or HPV primary screening.

Cancer of the uterus is the 4th most common cancer affecting women in Singapore today. Most cancers arise from the lining of the uterus (endometrium) but sometimes, it can occur from the muscle of the uterus. Majority of women affected are above the age of 40 years. Most women present with the symptoms of abnormal uterine bleeding such as post-menopausal bleeding or abnormal menses. Risk factors for endometrial cancer include obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and a family history of the condition. Diagnosis of endometrial cancer is typically based on an endometrial biopsy. 60% of women are diagnosed in early stages hence the chance of cure with surgery alone is high.
