How to Screen for Colon Cancer Without Having a Colonoscopy

22 Sep

It’s called a fecal immunochemical test (FIT). With FIT, there is no prepping, no anesthesia, no poking or prodding. All you have to do is take a stool sample at home and send it to a lab. The lab then detects traces of blood in the stool that would indicate a tumor or polyp.

How accurate is FIT? Research shows that it’s 94% accurate at ruling out colon cancer. That means you can use this simple in-home test instead of having a colonoscopy and put your colon cancer worries to rest.  Ask your doctor about it at your next checkup.
