Uterine cancer, also known as endometrial cancer, is a cancer that starts in the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus (womb). It is predominantly due to prolonged exposure to an excess of the female hormone called oestrogen. Endometrial cancer occurs when the cells of the endometrium start to grow too rapidly. The lining of the uterus may thicken in certain places. These areas of thickness may form a mass of tissue called a tumor.

Cervical cancer Updates – Singapore [Woman Cancer Symptoms]

Cervical cancer is one of the preventable diseases, with regular screening for pre-cancers, treatment and vaccination. Yet, it remains the second most common cause of death for females aged between 15 and 44 in Singapore. This is a pressing public health issue that requires immediate attention not only in Singapore, but globally, as well.

A recent projection by the World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated ​that ​the annual global statistics of new cervical cancer cases ​could​ grow from 570,000 to 700,000 between 2018 and 2030, and ​fatalities, ​from 311,000 to 400,000 in the same duration.

Common Gynaecological Cancers in Singapore – Uterine Cancer, Ovarian Cancer

How can Singapore take the lead from Australia and adopt a broader and longer-term perspective of preventing HPV-related cancers and diseases? The Covid-19 pandemic has taught the world that in dealing with a virus-related disease, we should boost herd protection across the population, as a critical priority.

Looking ahead, we need to focus more on primary prevention for long-term cost-containment through a fully accessible national vaccination initiative. Eventually this strategy would reduce the reliance on secondary prevention through screening and the incidence of HPV-related diseases resulting in the containment of the ever-escalating cost of the treatment.
