Screening is the first step to catching Colon Cancer early. See below on how you can get a free screening this month.
Provided by the Hank and Laurel Greer Colorectal Cancer Program
Through the Hank and Laurel Greer Colorectal Cancer Program we are offering free
digital rectal exams (DREs) and fecal immunochemical tests (FITs).
DREs check the lower rectum, pelvis and lower belly for cancer and other health problems. FITs test stool for hidden blood that may be a sign of colorectal cancer.
To Participate in the Screening You Must Be:
Age 50 and older, or if you are African American age 45 and older; or,
Your age must be 10 years prior to the age of a first degree relative having colorectal cancer. For
example, if your mother had colorectal cancer at age 45 you would need a screening at age 35.
