Understanding Colorectal Cancer

In Singapore, colorectal cancer is the top cancer affecting men and the second most common cancer in women. Colorectal cancer may or may not cause symptoms immediately and if symptoms do arise, these may sometimes be mistaken for common bowel ailments. As such, it is important to understand the risk factors, screening & detection methods and treatment options for colorectal cancer.
