Colorectal Cancer At-Home Test
If you’re over the age of 45, you should get screened for colorectal cancer (CRC). A colonoscopy, an office procedure that uses a camera attached to a probe to see the colon, is one of the more common methods for screening. It also requires a person to undergo an extensive bowel cleanout preparation with laxatives.
While a colonoscopy is one option, there are simpler and more affordable alternatives to consider.
Pixel by LabCorpTM offers a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kit which allows you to screen for CRC at home—giving the peace of mind you want without the special preparation or office visit you might prefer to skip.
This FIT screens for CRC by detecting the presence of hidden blood in the stool. Each test kit comes with everything you need to collect your sample safely and cleanly from the comfort of home, including step-by-step instructions, specially designed capture paper, and a sample-collection wand.
Note: FIT should be repeated at least once a year when used as a screening tool for colorectal cancer screening.
No special preparation.
