Persistent or unexplained symptoms: If you have ongoing symptoms that are not resolving or seem to be worsening, it's essential to seek medical evaluation.

Diagnosing Cancers

Accurate and timely diagnosis is the cornerstone of effective cancer treatment. Our Oncology Department utilises state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and procedures to identify cancerous conditions:


We employ advanced imaging techniques, such as MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, and PET scans, to visualise tumours and assess their extent. These non-invasive imaging modalities aid in accurate staging and treatment planning.


A biopsy involves the removal of a small tissue sample for laboratory analysis. It is a crucial step in confirming the presence of cancer and determining its specific type and characteristics. Different biopsy techniques, including needle biopsies and surgical biopsies, may be used based on the location and size of the tumour.

Blood Tests

Specific blood markers, known as tumour markers, may help detect certain types of cancer or monitor treatment response. Blood tests are a valuable tool in cancer diagnosis and ongoing management.

Our multidisciplinary team of pathologists and oncologists reviews the diagnostic results to ensure an accurate diagnosis, enabling us to develop the most appropriate treatment plan for each patient.

Key Surgeries & Procedures

CritiCare Asia Hospitals offers a wide range of surgical interventions, tailored to each patient's cancer type, stage, and overall health. Our skilled surgeons perform key surgeries and procedures, including:


A mastectomy involves the surgical removal of breast tissue affected by cancer. We offer various mastectomy options, including total mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy, and skin-sparing mastectomy. Our focus is not only on cancer eradication but also on cosmetic outcomes and breast reconstruction options.


Also known as breast-conserving surgery, a lumpectomy involves removing the tumour along with a margin of surrounding healthy tissue. It is commonly used to treat early-stage breast cancer, preserving the majority of the breast tissue.

Radical Prostatectomy

A radical prostatectomy is the surgical removal of the entire prostate gland and surrounding tissues. It is a common treatment for localised prostate cancer, aiming to remove the cancerous cells while preserving urinary and sexual function.

Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic surgery involves surgical interventions for lung and chest-related cancers. Procedures may include lobectomy, pneumonectomy, and minimally invasive techniques such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) or robotic surgery.
