An Introduction to Cancer

Every day, healthy cells in our body divide to replace old or damaged cells. Cancer cells, however, grow and survive when they should not, depleting oxygen and nutrients that could be used to nourish healthy cells instead.

This leads to an impaired immune system and other health problems, which explains why many cancer patients often experience symptoms such as unexplained weight loss, fatigue and pain.

1 in 4 Singaporeans Are Expected to Develop Cancer

In Singapore, about 39 people are diagnosed with cancer every day, 15 people die of cancer every day, and 1 in 4 people may develop cancer in their lifetime. The top cancers include colorectum, lung, breast, and prostate cancer.

Thankfully, advancements in treatment and screening have led to earlier detection and timely treatment for many, reducing cancer mortality rates.

Stage I

Early-stage cancer is located in one area and has not spread to nearby tissues. Individuals with this form of cancer have a high chance of full recovery, usually by removing the tumour with surgery.

Care Support

  • Medical escort
  • Medication reminders
  • Post-surgery care
  • Nursing care
  • Rehabilitation therapy

Stage II or III

At this stage, cancer may have spread to nearby tissues and/or lymph nodes, but not to other parts of the body. Recovery may be possible with more extensive treatment.

Care Support

  • Medical escort
  • Medication reminders
  • Staying active
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Night care
  • Palliative care

Stage IV

In advanced or metastatic cancer, cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body. In most cases, stage IV cancer is no longer curable. Hospice treatment may be recommended instead.

Care Support

  • Personal care
  • Medication reminders
  • Nursing care
  • Rehabilitation therapy
