Colorectal Cancer: Are You At Risk?

If you are 45 or older or have a family history of colorectal cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends that you be screened for signs of colorectal cancer. Precancerous polyps and early-stage colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. This means that someone could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. This is why having a screening test is so important.

What Are The Symptoms?

Symptoms of polyps or
colorectal cancer may include:

  • Blood in or on your stool (bowel movement)
  • Stomach pains, aches, or cramps that don’t go away
  • Unexplained weight loss

A signed consent form is
required, and the kit must be picked up in person. Unfortunately, kits cannot
be mailed or picked up for family or friends. Pick up your kit at the location
listed for your screening time. Follow the directions for completing the simple
stool sample test in the privacy of your home. Once finished, mail the kit back
in the postage paid envelope. You can expect your results 2-3 weeks after
mailing your kit.
