Colon Cancer Screening - Participation in HK Government Scheme

Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme | 大腸癌篩查計劃

Get Screened. Prevent Colorectal Cancer.

Our clinic doctors are providing screening services as part of the Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme. The Hong Kong government subsidises asymptomatic Hong Kong residents aged between 50 and 75 to receive screening service in the private sector.

In Hong Kong, colorectal cancer is the most common cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. Most cases of colorectal cancer (also known as colon cancer, bowel cancer, or rectal cancer) begin as a small polyp. Polyps are usually benign, but some may gradually develop into cancer. Signs and symptoms may include blood in the stool, change in bowel movements, weight loss, and fatigue.

Screening Programme Process

Interested individuals can first make an appointment with an enrolled Primary Care Doctor in the programme. Our family medicine specialist Dr. Johnny Lam can provide the initial assessment for the first stage of the screening. Qualified participants for the programme can then take a Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) to detect small amounts of blood in stool.

If there is a positive result with the FOBT, our general surgery specialist Dr. Kenneth Chok would perform a colonoscopy to remove polyps, if any, to prevent them from developing into cancer.

Our doctors are enrolled as a Primary Care Doctor and Colonoscopy Specialist to provide a service for the Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme. Please visit the programme’s FAQ site to learn more information.

接受篩查 • 防止大腸癌

中環專科的醫生已經登記參加政府的「大腸癌篩查計劃」。香港政府資助年齡50至75歲及無症狀的香港居民在私營診所接受篩查服務。

在香港,大腸癌是最常見的癌症,也是導致癌症死亡的第二大原因。大腸癌的大多數病例都是從小瘜肉開始的。瘜肉通常呈良性,但有可能會逐漸發展成癌症。體徵和症狀可能包括便血,腸蠕動改變,體重減輕和疲勞。

篩查計劃過程

有興趣人士可以先與計劃註冊的基層醫療醫生預約。 本診所的家庭醫學專科林智源醫生可為篩查第一階段提供初步評估。合資格者可以進行大便隱血測試,以檢測糞便中的微量血液。

如果大便隱血測試呈陽性,我們的外科專科竺兆豪醫生將進行大腸鏡檢查以查察有否異樣,如果有瘜肉便會切除,以防止瘜肉發展成癌症。
