Colorectal cancer ranks as one of Singapore’s top two cancers affecting men and women. With about 1,500 newly diagnosed cases of Colorectal cancer in Singapore each year, the risk of a person getting colorectal cancer during his lifetime is 5.6%. Despite its high treatability and durability with early detection and treatment, many individuals aged 50 years and above, especially those from low-income backgrounds, are unable to undergo colonoscopy due to concerns about costly expenses and complicated procedures.

#My1stColonoscopy is a campaign jointly organised by Icon Cancer Centre and 365 Cancer Prevention Society to provide seamless access to sponsored colonoscopy for individuals aged 45 to 70 from lower-income families. The sponsored colonoscopy includes pre-screen and post-screen consultation with a specialist. By offering this initiative, the campaign aims to ensure that individuals who might otherwise be unable to afford or access colonoscopies can benefit from early detection and treatment of colorectal cancer.
