Description

Simei : Most Common Cancer in Women-27 July (Sat)


In Singapore, about 35 people are diagnosed with cancer every day*. The good news is, with early detection and treatment, you can have better clinical/management outcomes.

Global cancer incidence in women

  • Breast cancer was the most common cancer in women worldwide, contributing 25.4% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2018.

  • The top three – breast, colorectal and lung cancers – contributed 43.9% of all cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).

  • Cervical cancer was the fourth most common cancer in women, contributing 6.9% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2018.

Join us for the talk with Dr Radhika Lakshmanan to find out how we can equip ourselves with the key learning points about cancer and how to reduce our risk.



Speaker: Dr Radhika Lakshmanan, Farrer Park Hospital & Parkway East
