Service Description

This is an at-home collection fecal immunochemical test or “FIT”. This test screens for colorectal cancer by looking for hidden blood in the stool, which can be an early sign of cancer. This test is the first step in the screening process and does not diagnose colorectal cancer. If blood is found in your stool sample, you’ll need further screening and evaluation, such as a colonoscopy, to confirm whether or not you have colorectal cancer or another condition. You can collect a water sample at home using the collection kit we’ll send to you at no extra charge via FedEx® and we’ll also include a prepaid FedEx shipping label and envelope that you can use to securely ship your sample to our lab for testing. Detailed instructions on how to collect your sample are included in the kit. Video instructions are also available here. This test may be helpful if you: Are between 45 and 75 years of age* Don’t have symptoms of colorectal cancer Had your last colorectal cancer stool screening over a year ago Had a negative colonoscopy over 10 years ago *American Cancer Society recommends individuals at average risk for colorectal cancer begin screening at 45. This test may NOT be helpful if you: Have any symptoms of colorectal cancer, which may include: Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool Changes in your bowel habits (eg, diarrhea, constipation, or pencil-thin stools) that last more than a few days Unexplained belly pain or cramping An urge to have a bowel movement that doesn’t go away after passing stool Unexplained weakness or tiredness Unexplained, significant weight loss Having a diagnosis of anemia Abdominal bloating that doesn’t go away Have a family history of colorectal cancer Have a personal history of colorectal cancer, inherited cancer syndromes, or other digestive tract cancers Have a personal history of colorectal conditions such as Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease, or diverticulosis flare-up or colorectal ulcers in the past month Have had major bowel or rectal surgery (colectomy, colostomy, etc)
