Cancer and You

Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and division of abnormal cells within the body. Left untreated, these cells will invade tissues and spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems.

Cancer is the number one killer in Singapore, responsible for one quarter of all deaths. It can affect anyone, young or old, male or female, people of any race or nationality.

Most people dread the mention of the word “cancer”. However, avoiding the subject may actually do more harm than good. If cancer is detected earlier and treated appropriately, it increases the chances of cure and long term survival.

Cancer often has no specific symptoms, especially in the early stages of the disease. When symptoms do appear, however, they will likely vary, depending on the type of cancer, the stage or extent of the disease, size, location and the overall health of the person, among other factors.

By learning more about cancer, you might be able to help yourself and your family members. In Singapore, the top 5 cancers in men and women are… Colorectal Cancer, Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Lung Cancer and Liver Cancer, which we’ll talk more about each of them in subsequent posts.
