Walk to raise awareness of colorectal cancer

Walk to raise awareness of colorectal cancer

SINGAPORE: Some 500 residents hit the streets to spread the word on early detection in the fight against colorectal cancer at Punggol Waterway on Sunday. The walk is part of a series of activities by Parkway Cancer Centre, in the lead-up to Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March. Colorectal cancer is the most common cancer in Singapore, with more than 1,500 cases reported each year. The number of newly-diagnosed cases has been rising over the years but mortality rate has been dropping - thanks to greater accuracy in screenings, early detection and more effective treatments. Those aged 50 and above are advised to go for regular screenings, which can be done through a faecal test or colonoscopy.
