How will I know when I need a colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is advised if you are 50 or older, or if you are 40 and have a higher risk of getting colorectal cancer due to family history or ethnicity. A colonoscopy is also advised if you have symptoms such as rectal bleeding, stool changes, weight loss, or abdominal pain.

What exactly is a colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is a procedure that examines the large intestine (colon) with a long, flexible tube that has a light and a tiny camera at one end (a colonoscope). A colonoscopy allows your doctor to find and remove polyps, which are abnormal growths in the lining of your large intestine.

What are the signs and symptoms of colon cancer?

Colorectal cancer is a form of cancer that begins in the rectum or colon. It is commonly present in adults over the age of 50 and can be fatal if not detected early. Colorectal cancer symptoms can include prolonged diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and stomach pain. If you encounter any of these symptoms, please visit Alpha Digestive & Liver Centre right away.

How frequently should I have a colorectal cancer screening?

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in Singapore. It is also one of the most lethal. Colorectal cancer screening can be done once a year for those who are at a high risk due to family history or other factors.
