At Raffles Cancer Centre, we offer the following services:
Genetic Testing and Counselling
While cancer is largely caused by lifestyle factors, it can also be hereditary. Certain cancer-causing genes may run in your family, increasing your risk of inherited cancer.
Besides using screening tools to confirm the symptoms of cancer, our oncologists can also help you assess your risk of getting inherited cancer via genetic tests. They can recommend the right tests to you, as well as help you make informed decisions to manage or prevent the cancer.
Cancer Treatment and Management
We have the necessary expertise to treat and manage various cancers, including:
Breast cancer is the top cancer affecting women in Singapore. It occurs when your breast cells start growing and dividing uncontrollably. It may grow slowly in some people, while developing more rapidly in others. While most breast cancers start in the milk ducts, a small number may start in the milk sacs or lobes.

In Singapore, lung cancer is the number two killer among males, and the third among females. Lung cancer usually occurs in cells lining the airways. As the cancer grows and spreads, it may interfere with the normal functioning of the lungs, and eventually spread to other parts of the body if left uncontrolled.

Leukaemia is a form of blood cancer that begins in the bone marrow. This cancer causes the abnormal and uncontrolled production of white blood cells, known as leukaemia cells. These leukaemia cells do not function normally. Over time, they crowd out the healthy blood cells, reducing the number of normal cells in your body.

Another form of cancer affecting the white blood cells, lymphoma usually begins from the lymph nodes. In Singapore, it is the fifth most frequent cancer affecting men, and the sixth most frequent cancer affecting women.
