A neoplasm of the ovary is an abnormal growth that forms on a woman’s ovary. It comes in many types, namely epithelial tumours, germ cell tumours, and stromal cell tumours. It can sometimes grow in clusters called ovarian cystic neoplasms, which can either be benign or malignant. When malignant, it is a characteristic of a life-threatening condition called ovarian cancer. Patients diagnosed with a neoplasm of the ovary should seek immediate treatment to help prevent the condition from affecting the function of the ovaries or metastasising to nearby organs.
Modern treatments for neoplasm of the ovary are now widely available in Southeast Asian countries namely Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia.
Dubbed as the medical tourism capital of Southeast Asia, Singapore is the most popular and most reliable destination among regional patients who need treatment for chronic, life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. The country, which has been an active proponent of Asian medical tourism, has many fully equipped hospitals that feature modern, cutting-edge technologies, which allow its specialists to provide exceptional, high-quality, and world-class medical care.
Thailand has also helped the region’s medical tourism industry after it achieved a major milestone when it attained the first Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation for Bumrungrad Hospital. Bumrungrad has become renowned for some of its specialties, namely cancer care and cardiology, among others.
However, the Southeast Asian country that saw the highest growth in recent years is Malaysia, now considered the region’s up-and-coming medical tourism destination. The country is currently actively seeking major improvements in its medical facilities, with most major changes targeted towards international patients. It is recognised for pursuing the most advanced treatments in oncology and other major specialties and for its commitment to providing the best possible treatment outcomes for both local and international patients.
