Why Millennials and Gen Z-ers Should Be Aware Of Colorectal Cancer

In 2020, approximately 49,000 people in Malaysia were estimated to be newly diagnosed with cancer. This number is expected to rise to 66,000 new cases annually by 2030. More alarmingly, new patients in their late 20s to early 30s are also being diagnosed with cancer. We invite consultant clinical oncologist Dr Jenson Sow to tell us more about the trend of colorectal cancer among young adults, and why we need to be more vigilant about cancer screening in the younger population.
