Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

With more than 25% of all cancers diagnosed in women being breast cancer, it is the most common cancer occurring in women. The risk of breast cancer increases with age, and most women diagnosed with breast cancer are older than 40.

It is recommended that women 40 years and older go for breast screening (ultrasound radiology test) and/or ovarian screening (ovarian cancer marker blood test) tests yearly.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer amongst men in Singapore, and is the sixth leading cause of cancer death amongst men.

Some risk factors include age over 40 years old, family history, diet high in animal fat and red meat as well as previous vasectomies done. If detected early, prostate cancer patients have a very high survival rate.
