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.
No Health Insurance? No Problem.
The Cancer Services Program of Monroe County pays for the take-home F.I.T. kits and/or colonoscopies for men and women (ages 50 & older) with no health insurance. Call us to learn more about getting screened at (585) 224-3070.
