Colorectal Cancer Screening Information

Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT)

The fecal immunochemical test, also known as FIT, is used to screen for colorectal cancer. The FIT is performed the same way as the traditional fecal occult blood test without following a special diet or using special drugs in preparation for the test. Like the FOBT, the FIT detects small amounts of blood in feces, which might be a sign of a polyp or cancer. When performed annually, beginning at age 45, FIT allows physicians to track patients at high risk for CRC.

Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a screening test that uses a scope to examine the inside of the entire colon and rectum for abnormal growths (polyps). This procedure requires that patients follow dietary and medication restrictions to be accurate. The I test aims to remove precancerous polyps before they develop into colorectal cancer.
