SCREENING

Screening is important as it helps to detect cancer that is very small and is at an early stage, which does not tend to cause any symptoms. There is a near to 100% cure rate when some cancers are detected in the very early stage.

Certain cancer screening tests are recommended for the general population above a certain age, other screening tests are targeted at the group of populations who are at risk of developing certain types of cancers. Our team of highly specialised doctors will take a detailed history, do a thorough clinical examinations before recommending the most appropriate screening tests for each individual.

We also offer some basic screening packages for selected patients.
