Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer, or cancer of the colon and rectum, has ranked consistently as the top killer cancer in Singapore, affecting more than 1,200 cases annually.

Colorectal cancer develops gradually over years and is more common amongst people aged 50 years and older. Most of these growths begin as benign polyps on the inner lining of the colon or rectum, and slowly develop into cancerous tumours.

The rise in cases of colorectal cancer can be attributed to an ageing population and poor dietary habits, particularly the consumption of red and processed meat, cigarette smoking and alcohol, as well as obesity and physical inactivity.
