Colorectal Cancer (Asia)

Video is Loading...

Colorectal cancer is the cancer of the colon and rectum. It is the most common cancer in Singapore.

Colorectal cancer is formed from cells lining the colon and rectum, often resulting in the growth of colorectal polyps. Polyps are benign growths in the colon and rectum which may develop into cancer over a period of time. If polyps are detected, they should be removed.

These 'Speaking from Experience' video clips offer first-hand accounts from seven people and one caregiver living with colorectal cancer. They discuss the impact it has had on their lives and the ways they manage the condition. These video clips were produced in partnership with Singapore Cancer Society.
