Cervical cancer

Cervical cancer screening provides early detection of cell abnormalities or the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) which is known to be a primary cause of cervical cancer. The San's extensive diagnostic services are used to conduct follow up tests such as biopsies or colposcopies to confirm a diagnosis or to inform the treatment approach.

While the main treatment for early-detected cervical cancer is surgery, other therapeutic options considered are targeted therapies (designed to destroy abnormal cells), chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The San's team of gynaecologic oncologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists work together to form the appropriate treatment plan for the stage and type of cervical cancer.

Colorectal / Bowel cancer

The San's extensive diagnostic services play a crucial role in the early detection of colorectal or bowel cancer. Generally beginning as small growths called polyps on the inner lining of the colon or rectum, early stage bowel cancer is regarded as highly treatable.

Our bowel cancer specialists utilise sophisticated diagnostic tools including stool screening, colonoscopies, CT and MRI scans to collect detailed information on the size and location of the bowel cancer. Based on the stage of cancer, and using our thorough knowledge of bowel cancer oncology, we prepare individual treatment plans which may include advanced surgical therapies or non-surgical therapies such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

Melanoma (Skin cancer)

The Australian outdoor lifestyle with high sun exposure increases the prevalence of melanoma skin cancer in our population. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause skin cells to mutate and over time, potentially form malignant tumours.

The main treatment for early-stage skin cancer is usually to surgically remove the cancerous tissue, while later stage cancer treatments can include the removal of lymph nodes, targeted drug therapy, radiation therapy, and less commonly, chemotherapy.

The San's dedicated team of medical oncologists and cancer surgery specialists draw on the latest research and treatment methods to provide a clear, planned approach to treating skin cancer cases.
