Colonoscopy in Singapore

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting men and women in Singapore, with a higher incidence in individuals above 50 years of age. Colonoscopy plays a crucial role in preventive care as it allows for the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer.

By visualising the colon and rectum in real-time, doctors can identify and remove abnormal growths (polyps) even before it turns cancerous. Aside from colon and rectal cancer, colonoscopies can also help diagnose various gastrointestinal diseases, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and diverticulosis.

Dr Eugene Yeo is an experienced doctor skilled in performing colonoscopies and formulating an effective treatment plan. Make an appointment at:
