Colorectal Cancer Screening Pilot Programme

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers and the second deadliest cancer in Hong Kong.
About 90% of colorectal cancer patients are aged 50 or above. Most colorectal cancers start with small
benign colorectal polyps, yet some have the possibilities to develop into malignant cancers. Delayed
treatment may cause damages to body organs or in severe cases, spread throughout the body. Therefore,
screening and early detection is effective in prevention and cure of the disease.

The Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society, Kowloon has already joined the Colorectal Cancer Screening Pilot
Programme implemented by the Department of Health, providing Hong Kong residents with consultation
and screening services to help prevent colorectal cancer. Eligible citizens can now make appointments in
advance to consult our enrolled primary care doctor (PCD) and undergo the Faecal Immunochemical Test
(FIT). Participants with positive screening results shall be referred to colonoscopy examination and follow
up services by colonoscopy specialists.

 

Citizens born in the years 1946 to 1955 with valid HKID are now eligible for the programme.
