Trubeam
Sunway Medical Centre offers Varian TrueBeam™ STx technology, a revolutionary innovation in cancer treatment. The system uses sophisticated 3D imaging to target and treat tumours of all shapes, sizes and locations with pinpoint accuracy, and the precision of the system is measured in increments of less than a millimetre.

Have you ever had any radiation therapy (radiotherapy) targeted at your abdomen for previous cancers?

Q9

Do you have any personal history of colon cancer or adenomatous polyps?

Polyps are abnormal growths rising from the lining of the large intestine (colon). Most polyps are benign (not cancerous), but some may develop into colon cancer over time.

Q10

Do you have any chronic inflammatory diseases of the colon such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease?

Chronic inflammatory diseases of the colon such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease cause inflammation in the lining of the digestive tract, which can be debilitating to the patients. Symptoms include persistent diarrhoea, abdominal pain, blood in the stool, weight loss & extreme tiredness.

Q11

Do you have any inherited genetic syndromes such as Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP), Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) or Lynch syndrome, Peutz-Jegher syndrome, Juvenile Polyposis, or MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP)?

Inherited genetic syndromes can be detected via genetic testing. Genetic testing can assess your risk of cancer, guide you to appropriate cancer screening, surveillance and/or preventive interventions if you have family history of colorectal cancer.

Q12

Do you have family history of colorectal cancer?

AVERAGE RISK
Why do I have an AVERAGE RISK to develop colorectal cancer?

You are categorized under the AVERAGE risk population, which means you have no known risk for colorectal cancer currently. You are under 50 years old, live a healthy lifestyle & practice good eating habits, non-smoker and no heavy alcohol usage, and have no other personal & family risks associated with colorectal cancer.

Your risk is AVERAGE if you have chosen any of the following risk factors:

  • You are less than 50 years old
  • Your daily dietary habit consists of:
    • High fiber diet, and/or
    • Low fat diet, and/or
    • Low in red meat & processed meat intake
  • You are living an active lifestyle (doing more than 150 minutes of exercise per week)
  • You are not diabetic (or has high blood sugar)
  • Your BMI is less than 30kg/m2
  • You are not a smoker
  • You do not have heavy usage of alcohol
  • You do not have radiation therapy targeted at abdomen to treat for previous cancers
  • You do not have personal history of colon cancer or adenomatous polyps
  • You do not have chronic inflammatory diseases of the colon e.g. ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease
  • You do not have inherited genetic syndromes e.g. familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) or Lynch syndrome, Peutz-Jegher syndrome, Juvenile Polyposis, MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP)
  • You do not have family history of colon cancer
What Should I Do Next?
  • Colonoscopy is a safe screening method that can be used to detect colorectal cancer, and should be done periodically after the age of 50 years old.
  • If you are under 50 years old, you may still get a colonoscopy screening should you experience any symptoms or if your result shows an increased or high risk.
  • Screening colonoscopy is able to reduce overall colorectal cancer incidence significantly by 56% and death by 68%.
  • Book an appointment with our expert consultant today to discuss more regarding your risk assessment of colorectal cancer.
Lifestyle Recommendation
  • Improve your eating habit: Eat a high fiber, low fat diet and reduce red meat & processed meat intake.
  • Engage in an active & healthy lifestyle: Exercise at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity activities per week (i.e. brisk walking) or 75 minutes of vigorous activities per week (ie. jogging or running).
  • Stop smoking as smoking increases your risk of developing colorectal cancer.
  • If you are diabetic, ensure your blood sugar level is well-controlled.
  • Obesity increases risk of colorectal cancer, thus ensure your BMI is within the normal limits.
  • Restrict your alcohol intake.
