According to the Singapore Cancer Registry*, 39 people are diagnosed with cancer every day and one in four people may develop cancer in their lifetime. While the disease remains the leading cause of death in Singapore, cancer is not a death sentence. Regular cancer screening allows for early detection and therefore, timely treatment; increasing the overall survival rates for many people.
Farrer Park Cancer Care is supported by a team of multidisciplinary medical experts who are here to help patients and their caregivers make informed decisions. From understanding a cancer diagnosis to deciding on a treatment plan, it aims to equip patients and their caregivers with a useful and practical resource as they navigate through the disease into remission.
