[Hokkien] Here’s why your parents and grandparents shouldn’t put their gut health on hold

We know it’s not always easy to convince our parents/ grandparents to go for a colonoscopy screening — so we’re hoping this quick commentary by Dr Aaron Poh in Hokkien will come in handy.

Understandably, in times of the COVID-19 pandemic, your parents or grandparents may avoid clinical settings for fear of getting sick. However, if they suffer from serious symptoms such as blood in their stool, or suspect a condition, please don’t hold it off and consult your doctor immediately. Early diagnosis could mean a huge difference, and, if spotted early, colorectal cancer can be prevented.
