Colorectal Cancer Screening

  • Screening enables you to find out if you have a particular disease or condition even if you do not have any symptoms and/or signs of diseases. Early detection means that you can get early treatment, resulting in better outcomes.

  • The Colorectal Cancer Screening involves testing a sample of your stool in a lab to be checked for any presence of blood using a test called ‘Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT).’
