FREE COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING
September 20, 2014
The American Cancer Society recommends that screening for colorectal cancer begin at age 50 for men and women, although it may be recommended earlier for those with a family history of colorectal cancer, polyps or other high-risk factors.
Beat Colorectal Cancer — Get Screened!
Screening increases your chances of early detection of colorectal cancer when it is most curable. It also increases your chance of detection of growths called polyps, which can turn into cancer. The removal of precancerous polyps can prevent colorectal cancer altogether.
Screening is easy with a new and improved take-home test iFOBT
(Immunological Fecal Occult Blood Test):
- No dietary restrictions
- One stool sample
- Limited number of iFOBT kits available for eligible participants
Information will be available on:
- All screening methods for colorectal cancer
- Tobacco Cessation
