Cancer is the leading cause of death, with Colorectal Cancer being the most common cancer in Singapore. Symptoms of colorectal cancer may remain unnoticed until an advanced stage. Cancer screening is the process of detecting cancer before symptoms appear, so as to identify cancer in its early stages when treatment is the most effective.
