  • The American Cancer Society recommends that people with average risk of CRC begin regular annual screening at age 45.


    However, you may need to be screened earlier if you have:
    • Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis
    • Personal or family history of CRC or colorectal polyps
    • Certain genetic conditions4


    We encourage you to speak with your provider if you think you are at increased risk for CRC to discuss when to start screening, which test is right for you, and how often to get tested.

  • There are pros and cons for the different options used for screening.  If you are reluctant to get a screening colonoscopy but dedicated to protecting your health, an at-home fecal immunochemical test (FIT) may be a good alternative.  We encourage you to speak with your provider to determine which test is right for you.

  • While the Labcorp ColoFITTM Home Test can detect blood in feces, which can be found in a number of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, including colorectal cancer.  It is not an official diagnosis. Speak to your healthcare provider as soon as possible if you receive a positive result. 


    Advanced colorectal cancers may not cause noticeable symptoms, which makes early screening even more critical. Bleeding, especially from polyps and tumors, is intermittent, so blood is not always present in all stool samples. Repeat testing can increase the chances of determining if blood is present from a reoccurring problem. FIT should be repeated at least once a year when used as a screening tool for colorectal cancer screening.

  • Your testing will be performed in a CLIA-certified clinical laboratory. Labcorp provides leading-edge medical laboratory tests and services through a national network of primary clinical laboratories and specialty testing laboratories. Our labs perform regular quality assurance testing to ensure our results are accurate.


    Because FIT explicitly detects the presence of blood, women should not take this test during or at the anticipated time of menstruation, as it may interfere with the accuracy of results. If you have an ongoing condition (such as diverticulitis or hemorrhoids) where blood can occasionally show up in the stool, this test may not be suitable for you. We encourage you to consult a healthcare provider to discuss which types of screening are recommended.
