Colorectal Cancer Screening

Colon/colorectal cancer screening can be an at-home stool test (FIT kit) or a colonoscopy. The FIT kit requires no doctor’s appointment, can be sent to you through the mail, and is returned directly to the lab in a pre-paid envelope. Colonoscopies can be provided if there is personal or family history or if there is a finding through a FIT test. Colon cancer screening is primarily for men and women 50 and older but can start younger if there is personal or family history or related problems.
