Hi! My name is Kah Chik.

Tell us about yourself

Father of 1, diagnosed with Hepatocellular Carcinoma aka Liver cancer at age 38.

What led you to the diagnosis and how has the journey been like?

I was cycling a lot at that time, had a fall and went to hospital for treatment. Felt a lump in my leg and the doctor said it was a muscle pull so just keep it iced. However, the lump stay on for months, and the pain was getting worse. Went to further investigate and had a MRI and found out that I have a tumor in my thigh. Asked the doctor to check whether it has spread and after a CT scan, a tumor was found, which led to the diagnosis being Liver cancer. I was given 2 months to live as a Stage 4 patient as the cancer has spread. That was Nov'22 and at point of writing (Sept'23), I am still here.

Any advice for others who may be going through a similar experience?

Having a positive mindset is important. The journey is tough, so seek support when needed. Joining a support group can also be beneficial.
