Increase in colorectal cancer cases in Singapore -Weng Kin- Channel NewsAsia

Increase in colorectal cancer cases in Singapore -Weng Kin- Channel NewsAsia | Guidelines To Curating | Scoop.it

 I have selected this news article as this article concern our family,country and future. It is all about a cancer called colorectal cancer and its effect to our body and hat we can do to prevent it from more harm to everyone. This silent but deadly cancer is the top cancer for males and the second most common for females. We can get it anywhere, anytime and there is no symtoms or signals. The main problem why many Singaporeans get this cancer is because of the fact that they neglect the thought that they won't get it and as time passes, the number if cancerous cells get even higher and the cancer will get even more serious. If one is 50 years of age or higher, one should consult a doctor as soon as possible to check it annually. Try to persuade your family members to check for colorectal cancer is they are 50 years or older before the silent killer attacks without warning and it will also indirectly and gradually cause an aging population. Fortunately, if you get colorectal cancer, it might not mean that you will need to spend the  rest of your time taking medication and chemotherapy because for those that found out the cancer early, there will be better control of the cancer. It is a cancer that attacks without warning, so why not go and visit the doctor and go for a checkup for colorectal cancer now!
