Eating Well During Cancer Booklet

This booklet was written to help people cope with eating problems which may occur because of the cancer itself and the treatment that has been prescribed. The booklet provides helpful information and tips to manage nutrition-related side effects. 

Hard copies will be available with the SCS Cancer Care Kit at SCS and selected hospitals to newly diagnosed cancer patients and to cancer patients undergoing treatment from 1 June. You may also download an online copy.

Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) Screening

Colorectal cancer is the number 1 cancer in Singapore.Screening for colorectal cancer should begin from the age of 50 for those with no symptoms. The FIT (Faecal Immunochemical Test) checks your stool for blood that cannot be seen to detect signs of cancer. If you are a Singaporean or Permanent Resident above 50 and have not gone for colorectal screening in the past year, pick up a FIT kit!

The SCS Cancer Care Kit is designed to assist cancer patients and their families in making informed decisions when cancer is diagnosed. It also serves to give hope and encouragement to those touched by cancer.


Hard copies will be distributed to all newly diagnosed cancer patients at the National Cancer Centre, Singapore (NCCS), National University Cancer Institute, Singapore (NCIS), and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).
