FIT Detects traces of blood in the stool, an important biomarker for colorectal cancer.

Colorectal cancer refers to cancer that develops in the colon or rectum. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death for both men and women in the U.S.1 While Colorectal cancer is most frequently diagnosed among people aged 65-75, it is estimated that 10.5% of new Colorectal cancer cases occur in people younger than age 50.1 Current recommendations are that regular screenings begin at age 45–50.2

Colorectal cancer can be managed with early detection. A positive result indicates that you should follow up with your physician.
