Colonoscopy Price Comparison – Singapore, Malaysia And Thailand

Colonoscopy price comparison

 

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common form of cancer in Singapore for both men and women. Most colorectal cancers develop from polyps, which takes about 5 to 10 years to become malignant. During a colonoscopy, if such polyps are detected, they can be removed before the cancer develops. Experts recommend that people aged 50 and above with no elevated risk factors for colorectal cancer undergo colonoscopy once every 10 years. In this article, we will do a colonoscopy price comparison between options in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. If you are due for a colonoscopy screening, this can help you make a choice between doing it locally or overseas.

Recap On Why Colonoscopy Is Important

The most reliable form of screening for colorectal cancer screening is the colonoscopy procedure. A colonoscopy is an examination of the inside of your colon using a flexible, thin tube that has a camera fixed to one end. With this procedure, the doctor will be able to examine the inside of the colon, and also remove polyps and if necessary, tissue for biopsies. With early detection of colorectal cancer, the chances of successful treatment are much higher compared to cancer that is detected only in late stages.

One factor that might cause people in to put off going for this potentially life saving procedure is the relatively high cost. One possible way to overcome the cost barrier is to have the procedure overseas, where costs are lower but not at the expense of lowered quality of medical service.

Colonoscopy Price Comparison – Singapore, Malaysia And Thailand

Based on online sources, the starting prices of stand-alone colonoscopy procedures in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand range from:

  • Around S$400 to S$880 (Malaysia).

The actual cost will vary depending on the choice of hospital and the type of sedation used. This would also be before the cost of any other related procedures such as polyp removal or biopsies, or additional medication.
