Colorectal cancer impacts the colon and rectum, with over 130,000 cases diagnosed yearly in the US. It begins as slow-growing polyps in the intestinal lining, some of which may turn cancerous.

Common symptoms include digestive issues and blood in the stool. Risk factors include age (especially after 50), chronic bowel diseases, diabetes, polyp history, family history, obesity, smoking, and alcohol consumption.

Early detection is crucial, and the FIT (Fecal Immunochemical Test) plays a vital role. It helps identify hidden blood in the stool, which can indicate colorectal cancer or other conditions. A positive FIT result should prompt further screenings like a colonoscopy for timely intervention. Regular screenings are vital for prevention and early treatment.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What exactly is the FIT test, and what is its primary purpose?

A FIT test, short for Fecal Immunochemical Test, is a non-invasive screening tool designed to help detect the presence of blood in the stool, which can be an early sign of colorectal cancer and various gastrointestinal diseases.

How does the FIT test work?

The FIT test works by detecting small amounts of blood in the stool using specific antibodies that react to hemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells. When blood is present, the test can provide a positive result.

Why is detecting blood in the stool important?

Detecting blood in the stool is essential because it can be an early indicator of colorectal cancer, as well as other conditions like polyps, ulcers, diverticulitis, or bleeding from the digestive tract.

Is the FIT test a substitute for a colonoscopy?

No, a FIT test is not a substitute for a colonoscopy. It is a less invasive initial screening tool that helps identify individuals at risk. If the FIT test yields a positive result, further evaluation through a colonoscopy is typically recommended for a more comprehensive examination.

Is there any special preparation required for the FIT test?

Unlike a colonoscopy, FIT testing does not require extensive preparation. You simply collect your sample from the comfort of your own home following the instructions provided with your test kit, and you send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory.
