A neoplasm of the pelvis is a tumour that forms in the pelvis and hip region affecting either the bone or soft tissues in the area. While some are benign, some are also malignant and can spread to other parts of the body. Benign neoplasms need to be surgically removed especially if they grow too big. Malignant neoplasms, on the other hand, are treated with cancer therapies, such as chemotherapy or more advanced alternatives such as biologic therapy or stem cell transplants.
All these treatments are widely available at Southeast Asia’s top cancer centres. Dubbed as the booming new medical tourism destination of today, the region boasts many state-of-the-art hospitals that provide specialised care for specific diseases, including cancer. Many of the region’s cancer centres are some of the most advanced in the world, with technology and facilities similar to those found in the US and Europe.
Despite this similarity, there is one major difference between ASEAN cancer centres and their Western counterparts – the cost they charge for advanced cancer care. Medical tourists in Southeast Asia can save as much as 50 to 70% of what they would pay in the West while receiving the same type and quality of medical care.
Some of the best destinations for patients with pelvic neoplasms include Gleneagles Hospitals in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. The Gleneagles Oncology-Cancer Centre (GOC) in Kuala Lumpur offers a wide range of holistic cancer treatments and delivers high standards of medical care for all its patients.
The same can be expected from Gleneagles Singapore's Parkway Cancer Centre, which delivers comprehensive cancer treatments using the latest technologies available. The centre is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of oncologists and nurses who strive to provide patients with the best clinical outcomes for their condition.
