Meet Dr Wong Nan-Yaw, an experienced colorectal surgeon who has a deep passion in helping people through their cancer journeys.
He dubs colorectal cancer as the emperor of diseases because it's a silent killer. He explains that the colon is a capacious organ, so it can accommodate a lot of 'things', even big 'things'.
Watch the video to find out more about colon cancer, its symptoms, and how Dr Wong's training helps him to nurse his patients back to good health.
A lot can be said about a person just by looking at their feet (which sounds much weirder than it's supposed to). Truth can be stranger than fiction...
Lynn Toh, a podiatrist from Singapore revealed that your feet are the first to show signs of serious conditions like arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes.
People often overlook the field of podiatry. They are not just trained to fix calluses, ingrown toenails, or give simple advice on footwear!
In Lynn’s AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) session on DxD, she covered a long list of other questions about podiatry as well as many facts you didn't know about your feet.
Work Stress Might Not Be The Cause Of Hormonal Imbalance, This S'porean Endocrinologist Tells You Why
Hormonal imbalance may be considered as an elusive condition. Many Singaporeans suffer from it without them even realising it!
It's often brushed off as common mood swings or a sign of fatigue. A lot of people are unware that this seemingly insignificant condition is a potential gateway to a whole host of other serious problems.
Dr Marilyn Lee, an accredited Specialist in Endocrinology, answered a lot of questions from the DxD Community on common disorders and diseases related to hormonal imbalance.
Here's what she had to share.
Moles are kind of like our old friends. After all, they tend to stick around longer than some people in our lives.
Ranging in size, shape, and colour, most moles seem to be pretty harmless. Some find them a nuisance because they appear at undesirable spots, while others consider their moles to be a special thing that make them unique.
But what if that mole that you've dimissed is potentially a sign of skin cancer?
Here's what an experienced dermatologist, Dr Stephanie Ho, has to say about the questions that she always gets asked.
Is That Time Of The Month Late Again? An Irregular Menstrual Cycle Could Point To Womb Cancer, Says This Veteran Gynaecologist
To all the ladies reading this, you’ve probably been here… Bracing yourself for all the misery that your period brings. It's all too familiar to the women around the world, including the men they live with.
However, if you're feeling pain even before the onset of bleeding, beware! There might be an underlying condition you need to address (not just the typical uterine cramping).
Dr Fong Yoke Fai is a renowned gynaecologist was featured on DxD Sessions. He answered many readers' questions on why periods are. From the causes of painful periods to abnormal bleeding, here's what he had to share.
Thinning hair stems from many reasons and it can be really distressing. Patients who come to me are eager to seek ways to reverse thinning hair.
However, despite their eagerness, many of them are still not keen on trying the traditional hair growth methods. Hair growth medicines comes with quite number of undesirable side-effects while hair transplant surgery is costly, and carries some risks.
Thus, I wanted to write this article to share my knowledge on a new hair-loss treatment: Regenera Activa.
Having a flat chest is often a huge source of insecurity for many women. Yuna is a one lady who struggled with it.
To make up for her “empty” chest area, she tried all sorts of breast enhancing methods that claim to be able to increase cup sizes. From creams to injesting breast enlarging cookies, papaya milk etc, but to no avail.
10 years later, she finally decided to get an actual boob job. She recently hosted an AMA on DxD to explain her experience undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, and how it changed her life.
The DxD community had a lot of questions for her (including some personal ones which she has kindly answered).
Getting pregnant can sometimes be pretty tricky. If you're struggling to conceive, don't worry, you're not alone.
Approximately 15% of the couples in Singapore can't get pregnant successfully within 12 months of trying to have a child, while roughly 50% of these couples have discovered that the cause may be an underlying medical disorder.
Physician Lin Jia Yi’s Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treatments may just improve the chances of pregnancy. She’s got loads of clinical experience under her belt and is passionate about TCM fertility treatments.
