Paediatric Brain Tumours in Singapore & Dr Chou Ning's Dedicated Approach
Brain tumours in children, whether benign or malignant, are a growing concern in Singapore. These growths in the brain or surrounding tissues can have profound implications for a child's development, health, and well-being. Paediatric brain tumours, such as Astrocytomas, Medulloblastomas, and Ependymomas, to name a few, arise from an uncontrollable cell division, resulting in masses that can affect various brain functions. Early detection combined with expert care is paramount for managing these tumours and safeguarding the future of our children.
It's against this backdrop that the expertise of Dr Chou Ning becomes invaluable to Singapore's paediatric neurocare landscape.
