What Every Malaysian Should Know About Cancer

Friday 19 October 2012

It is currently estimated that 1 in 4 Malaysians will develop cancer in their lifetime.
The Good News is, certain risks of cancer are preventable. These are the top 3 risks:

  • Tobacco. Our exposure to primary and secondary cigarette smoke is still very high.
  • Poor eating habits. The Health Ministry found that 90% of adult Malaysians do not eat enough fruits and vegetables, resulting in a rise in colorectal cancer.

  • Lack of exercise. About 20% of Malaysians are obese. 
Getting rid of these factors can reduce your risk of cancer by one-third or half.

The Bad News is, not all cancers are preventable. Genetics play a large part. For instance, being Chinese predisposes you to nasopharyngeal cancer (affecting your throat). About 80% of nasopharyngeal and oral cancer patients are Asians. Half of them die within 2 years. 

Unfortunately, less than 5% of scientific studies are conducted on Asians. To make matters worse, very little research has been conducted on both these cancers as they are perceived to be "low to middle income cancers" and cancers that are "taking place in Asia". Asians may not respond as well to existing cancer treatments as they are targeted mainly at the Caucasian population. 

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Malaysia. Unfortunately, researchers still have an incomplete understanding of how the disease develops. So far, only 10% of breast cancer is preventable.

Cancer Research Initiatives Foundation (CARIF) is a non-profit research organisation in Malaysia. It collaborates with top medical research centres around the world. It studies how our Asian genes and lifestyle increase our risks of having cancer and our response towards treatment.  There are still a lot to be done.
