Cancer Diagnosis

 The quality of cancer diagnosis methods plays a significant role in the early detection and evaluation of each case.

Our clinicians work alongside a multi-modality team to ensure that each patient experiences the best care possible for the diagnosis of cancer. Our gold standard diagnostic facilities first test for the presence of the disease, and thorough follow up tests determine the type of cancer, location of the tumor, the stage, and the spread of these cells as cancer manifests differently in each individual.  

  • Radiology: Radiology employs high-energy radiation like X-rays to diagnose and treat types of cancer. We offer a variety of screening and diagnostic radiology tests to facilitate the early detection and correct treatment of cancer.

Thus, this helps us ensure high rates of accuracy in our test results.

Biopsies performed by us are typically pain-free and pose little to no risk. The biopsy is performed by us using imaging techniques like ultrasound, MRI, and CT scans. Depending on the type of biopsy and the location of the surgery, anaesthesia may also be used.
  • Endoscopy: An endoscopy is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for early detection of cancer. Our diagnostic endoscopy is performed by experienced gastroenterologists with other specialists, including gastrointestinal, medical, and radiation oncologists. We strongly emphasize endoscopy as it greatly improves patient outcomes and also increases the patient's quality of life.  
  • Colposcopy: A colposcopy is a simple non-surgical procedure used to examine the presence of cervical or vulvar cancer. Colposcopy is most valuable in the prevention of cancer as it also helps to detect precancerous lesions. Our gynaecological oncology team uses colposcopies to investigate any abnormalities. Tests are conducted using a multidisciplinary approach, with gynaecological oncologists collaborating closely with other specialists.
