Prevention is always better than cure

We know that “Prevention is always better than cure”. We understand that time is of the essence; a hectic schedule and professional commitments might put your health in the back seat. However, regular screening can help us to identify chronic diseases or health conditions at early stages, allowing timely intervention and treatment, significantly improving outcomes and increasing the chances of successful recovery.

In addition, Colorectal cancer is one of the most prevalent forms of cancer worldwide. Fortunately, it is also highly preventable through the utilisation of screening methods.

In the case of early-stage colorectal cancer, symptoms are typically absent. However, once again, screening through endoscopy plays a pivotal role in the early detection of colorectal cancer. Early-stage colorectal cancer boasts a 5-year survival rate ranging from 80% to 90%, emphasising the importance of early detection.
