Colorectal Cancer Screening Program
   
  In 2012, colorectal cancer became the second most common cancer after the lung cancer in Hong Kong. There were 4563 diagnosed colorectal cancer cases in that year, accounting for 16.47% of all cancer cases. In 2013, colorectal cancer was the second most common causes of cancer death, resulting in a total of 1981 registered deaths and accounting for 14.6% of all cancer deaths. As the risk of colorectal cancer increases significantly from aged 50, persons aged 50 to 75 should consider for colorectal screening. THE HKSAR Government started a Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme in 2016 to fund for colonoscopy in private sector for high risk patients and elderly of aged over 75 in order to reduce the waiting time for the procedure investigation and to have earlier surgery when cancer cases are detected. In 2018, the HKSAR Government has extended the programme to those who are aged 50 or above.Our new endoscopy suite can assist the Government to offer investigation for the needy patients in shortening the waiting time and procedure could be done within one or two weeks.. Our Board also commission a free screening programme for those who are not in the target groups of Government"s scheme so as to allow people to receive the investigation earlier.  
     
 

 

 
  In supporting the HKSAR Government on Colorectal Cancer Screening Program, our Board also launches a free similar screening program for high risk patients.
