Ask Dr Jason Lim: Colonoscopy

Every day, 5 people in Singapore are diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 2 die of it. Colorectal cancer is one of the most frequently diagonsed cancers among male and females. It is also known as silent killer because it often has little or no symptoms. 

However, it is largely preventable with regular screening, and is curable with early detection. 

Dr Jason answered readers' questions on colonoscopies.
