SCREENING PROGRAM REACHES ONE-YEAR MARK

The ColonCancerCheck (CCC) program is one-year-old! This is a free colon cancer detection program for Ontarians over 50 years sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Cancer Care Ontario that began in April 2008. LifeLabs is supporting CCC by providing fecal occult blood testing. Over the last year, LifeLabs, working with caregivers across the province, has successfully screened thousands of people using mail-in fecal occult blood test (FOBT) kits. For information on how to order free kits for your office visit www.lifelabs.com and click on “New Tests” and select “ColonCancerCheck – Fecal Occult Blood Testing” or go to: www.lifelabs.com/Lifelabs_ON/ News/MDSNews 02250801.asp

About Colon Cancer

Colon Cancer is the second most deadly cancer and Ontario has one of the highest rates in the world. This cancer is highly treatable if detected early through screening. Studies have shown that fecal occult blood testing performed every two years can reduce death from colon cancer by an average of 16% over 10 years of screening. Nearly 80% of susceptible people in Ontario have not been screened for this preventable cancer.
