Health Care Provider Giving Free Cancer Screenings

Date Published: 02/28/2020 [Source]

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, and local health care provider is offering a free test to try and catch the disease early.

CentraCare Health says rectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer death for men and women despite being one of the most preventable forms of cancer.

Regular screening should start at age 50 or sooner with a family history of cancer or other risk factors.

During Colon Cancer Awareness month, people who are age 50 or older can receive a free immunochemical fecal occult blood test (iFOBT) Take-Home Colon Screening kit.
