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.
With more than two decades of experience managing colorectal conditions, our colorectal specialist Dr
Kam Ming Hian is a well-known figure in the medical arena. As the former Director of Robotics &
Minimally Invasive Surgery in the Department of Colorectal Surgery, SGH, Dr Kam has successfully
treated many patients, and received multiple awards for service excellence during his career.
He is well-published in international journals and has also been invited to speak at various conferences. To date, Dr Kam has performed thousands of gastroscopy and colonoscopy procedures, and conducted regular endoscopy training courses for the next generation of medical students.
