Gynae Oncology in Malaysia
Gynae cancers can happen in any area of the female sex or reproductive body parts.
Major parts of the female sex and reproductive system include:
- Uterus (womb where a baby grows)
- Fallopian tubes
- Skin folds (lips) around the vagina
Dermoid cysts are usually benign (meaning they do not go on to cause cancer). It is a form of tumour which arises when an unfertilised egg begins to divide. Because eggs have the potential to give rise to all cell types, dermoid cysts can form mature tissues. They may contain structures such as hair, oil glands, bone, and teeth.
They may cause illness by rupturing or causing twisting of the ovary. They are treated by surgery, either to remove the cyst or the whole ovary. Gynae oncology is a specialised cancer field focusing on cancers of the female sex (genitals) and reproductive system (where and how babies are made).
Dr Vijayavel used laparascopy (keyhole surgery) hysterectomy to remove a large demoid cyst successfully.
