What You Need to Know About Colon Cancer in Singapore
According to the Singapore Cancer Registry’s Annual Report released in 2015, not only is colorectal cancer (colon and rectal cancer) the most common cancer in Singapore, it also tends to be diagnosed in its later stages, with about one-third of cases diagnosed at Stage III and another one-quarter at Stage IV, for both males and females.
This statistic is unfortunate because colon cancer, unlike many other cancers, is actually easily preventable, as well as detectable and treatable in its early stages.
Development & Screening of Colon Cancer
Colon cancer occurs when a polyp in the colon was not detected and removed early on, and sometimes turns cancerous over time.
This is why regular screenings (usually a colonoscopy) is highly recommended – they allow abnormal growths like polyps to be identified and removed on the spot.
